Thunder rank 17th most valuable franchise per Forbes

According to Forbes, the Thunder are the 17th most valuable franchise. That is… the same as last season where they ranked 17th.

The big thing, though: The Thunder operated at an $8.4 million loss. They’re one of only three teams (Clippers, Cavs) to do that last season.

This is because the Thunder had the third-highest payroll last season, going deep into the luxury tax.
