NBA Free Agency: Andre Roberson reportedly takes $30M deal to stay with Thunder Sport News

Andre Roberson has agreed to a three-year, $30 million deal to stay with the Oklahoma City Thunder according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN

Roberson, 25, averaged a career-best 6.6 points and 5.1 rebounds per game in his fourth season with the Thunder last season. Widely considered the best perimeter defender for OKC, Roberson consistently guards at a high level and earned NBA All-Defensive Second Team honors in 2016-17.

Despite his lack of elite production on offense playing from the shooting guard position, Roberson’s value as a defensive stopper is invaluable to an otherwise average defense that ranked tenth in total defensive efficiency last season.

Roberson, alongside newly acquired All-Star Paul George and Patrick Patterson, will team up to form a potent starting five centered around defense that could prove to be successful alongside reigning MVP winner Russell Westbrook.
