When the Washington Wizards selected Vit Krejci in the 2nd round of the 2020 NBA Draft, the reaction from Wiz fans was a resounding, “Who?!”

When Washington traded Krejci to Oklahoma City, the reaction from Thunder fans was a resounding, “Why?!”

And when OKC bought out Vit Krejci’s European contract, the reaction from confused NBA blog boys like myself was a resounding, “Where?!”

As in, where was Krejci going to play in 2021? According to the CBA rules, a buyout likely meant Vit made it to the big league instead of the G League. But the past couple seasons have pulled and Silly Putty stretched the NBA rulebook to murky territory.

On Friday, we finally got our answer when the Thunder signed Krejci to a four year minimum contract. In what has become known as the Sammy Special, Vit’s first year is fully guaranteed, the second year has around an $800,000 guarantee and the final two seasons are team options.

While Krejci will become best buds with the OKC Blue man group this season, he is now officially the newest member of the OKC Thunder and deserves a proper introduction.
