The Thunder waive Alex Abrines; here's why, and what's next

Alex Abrines has been waived by the Oklahoma City Thunder, as the club announced.

Abrines has played in just two games since December 23rd due to a personal matter. Abrines and the team came to a mutual decision that he needed to step away from the game to work on those issues, according to Royce Young of ESPN.

Drafted with the 23rd overall pick of the 2013 draft, Abrines made his National Basketball Association debut in 2016 after several seasons starring for F.C. Barcelona. "He's around the team, we always talk and communicate", said Billy Donovan on February 5th. As players across the league continue to get bought out of their contracts following Thursday's trade deadline, the Thunder is expected to pursue at least one free agent before March 1 - the last day free agents can be signed and still be playoff eligible.

Omar is one of two Muslim-American women who were elected to Congress in last year's midterms, along with Rashida Tlaib of MI . Others pointed out that numerous Republicans lashing out at Omar had promulgated anti-Semitic conspiracy theories in the past.

The Thunder roster now stands at 12. It's likely they will use 10-day contracts to fill the void while waiting on the buyout picture to clear. For his career, Abrines has appeared in 174 games, averaging 5.3 points and shooting 36.8 percent from 3.

Abrines' release comes in the middle of a unusual 2018-19 season that saw him struggle through the first 29 games (career-low 32.3% 3P), then missed 17 consecutive games due to personal issues.
