OKLAHOMA CITY The Thunder have Kevin Durant and hopefully a well rested Russell Westbrook.
There's Serge Ibaka and Thabo Sefolosha and Reggie Jackson.
Hey, it's a longshot, but Kevin Martin might even return if he doesn't find a free agent deal more suitable than what OKC might offer.
Essentially, the pieces of last year's 60-22 team are all in place, so what happened in last Thursday's draft and what may or may not happen in the upcoming days of free agency is not a determining factor of how the Thunder will be when the season tips off in 2013.
While the Thunder certainly want to improve, they will have a hard time doing it through free agency. There's just almost no room on the roster.
So, if Oklahoma City is going to win a championship next season the Thunder will be one of the few teams that can do it it will have to do it with the guys who are already on the roster.
And that's not a bad thing because the roster is awfully good as it is. Good enough to win ...
