The Oklahoma City Thunder roster shrunk on Wednesday as they waived veteran forward Rudy Gay, per The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

Gay was set to make $6.5 million in the 2023-24 season after he picked up his player option. The Thunder acquired the 36-year-old from the Atlanta Hawks in a multi-player trade.

In the same deal, the Thunder also acquired TyTy Washington Jr., Usman Garuba and a 2026 second-round pick from the Hawks. The deal saved the Hawks $4.6 million in cap space as they solely acquired Patty Mills and his expiring $6.8 million salary.

The trim cuts the Thunder’s roster to 20 players on the main roster, which is near the 21 allowed during the offseason.
