Report: Thunder’s Nerlens Noel to Become Free Agent
Oklahoma City Thunder backup center Nerlens Noel has decided to opt out of the last year of his contract and will become a free agent, according to a report by Shams Charania of The Athletic.
Noel was scheduled to make $1.9 million next season from the Thunder.
The report says Noel will discuss a possible re-signing with the Thunder, but several other teams are expected to show interest.
Noel averaged 4.9 points a game last season for OKC, which was his fifth season in the NBA.
