The Thunder have a full roster, but they’re always on the lookout for talent and training camp invites. And according to BasketUSA, with a hat tip to Google translate, the Thunder have interest in big man Alexis Ajinca:
This leaves only 16 days to NBA franchises to sign but the possibility exists and is increasing as the player string of good performances (10.7 points, 6.9 rebounds in 19 minutes) at the European Championships. According to L’Equipe, recruiters sent by Oklahoma City and Utah also take a very attentive to the performance of the pivot eye.
Ajinca hasn’t played in the NBA since the 2010-11 season, but performed very well in Eurobasket for France. He’s 7-2 and while he never found any kind of foothold in the NBA, the Thunder have had their ear to the ground for centers for a couple of years now. Plus, with DeAndre Liggins being waived, that’s another slot for someone to get a training camp shot.
Ajinca, 25, was selected 20th overall by the Bobcats in 2008.
