Sidery reports that the Thunder will look to deal Giddey alongside some of their 13 future first-round picks in an effort to “acquire an impact player who better fits the rotation.”

While Giddey may be on the market, the Australian has made it clear he wants to stay and continue to grow with an impressive young team in Oklahoma City.

“This is a home away from home,” Giddey said when asked about his future and whether he would like to stay in Oklahoma City.

“I love everything about this place – the city, the fans, the organization from top to bottom, just incredible people throughout the building. It’s so nice to come to work here every day.

“…I just love the group of guys we have and I’m excited to continue to grow with them. Sam (Presti), Mark (Daigneault), everyone from top to bottom has been incredible for me all season.”

Giddey endured an up-and-down 2023-2024 campaign that ended in an initial playoffs run that ultimately came to an end in the Western Conference semifinals against the Dallas Mavericks.

The Aussie impressed in the Thunder series against the Pelicans, where he averaged 12.5 points and 26.5 minutes, but fell off against the Mavericks.

The 21-year-old was benched for the first time in his NBA career in Game 5 after having his minutes cut in the four previous games.
