All four players are likely to wind up with OKC’s G League affiliate, Oklahoma City Blue, and if they all have Exhibit 10 contracts, they’ll be eligible to earn bonuses of at least $75K if they spend 60 days with the team.
McConnell, a two-time Defensive Player of the Year in the Big Ten, averaged 9.1 points, 5.5 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 2.5 steals last season at Rutgers. Flagler was an AP All-American honorable mention last season at Baylor, averaging 15.6 points, 4.6 assists, 2.4 rebounds and 1.2 steals. McConnell and Flagler both played for the Thunder during Summer League.
The moves leave Oklahoma City with a full offseason roster of 21 players.
