The NBA trade deadline is just around the corner, and as a result we are seeing teams start to become more and more active on the trade front. We’ve heard teams like Phoenix, Philadelphia and Charlotte all involved in trade talks, but the Oklahoma City Thunder are new to the party — and very serious about making a trade.
According to Yahoo! Sports insider Adrian Wojnarowski, the Oklahoma City Thunder are very active in trying to secure another scorer to help them in the postseason.
Armed with trade exceptions, OKC has been active in search for a shooter to fortify them for title run, league sources tell Yahoo.

The Thunder have trade exceptions they can use in a trade and a mid-level exception they can use to sign someone, which is why they’ve been apparently looking at Rudy Fernandez over in Spain. Should they not be able to sign him, it sounds like the team will go after a veteran shooter to help the team down the stretch of the season and most importantly in the postseason.
Oklahoma City is almost never mentioned in trade rumors, as teams that are winning have little to fix. Still, the Thunder are in the market for a shooter and they may end up getting one before the deadline passes.
