As the Oklahoma City Thunder head into the 2019 offseason, they may look at trading one of these five players in order to revamp their roster.

The Oklahoma City Thunder‘s 2018-19 season ended in disappointing fashion with a 4-1 first round series loss to the Portland Trail Blazers. This most recent playoff flop is the team’s third first round exit in a row, prompting fans and media members to question what changes the front office will make over the summer.

Having the second-highest payroll in the NBA last season — coupled with a monumental luxury tax bill — makes chasing free agents a near impossibility for the Thunder. Instead, they must look to enhance the roster through the draft and trades.

Here are five players currently on the Oklahoma City Thunder roster that general manager Sam Presti will have to consider trading during the 2019 offseason.
