OKLAHOMA CITY – A Thunder guard is now an unrestricted free agent.

This off-season, the Oklahoma City Thunder gave guard Dion Waiters a $6.8 million qualifying offer before free agency opened on July 1.

Once Kevin Durant left the team, things changed.

According to ESPN, the Oklahoma City Thunder rescinded guard Dion Waiters’ qualifying offer, which makes him an unrestricted free agent.

Last season, Waiters only averaged 9.8 points in 78 games with the team.

Many analysts say the move frees up more cap space to work on an extension for Russell Westbrook.

Waiters was drafted in the first round of the 2012 NBA Draft by Cleveland.
