The understaffed Oklahoma City Thunder re-tooled their roster with a flurry of minor moves on Monday. According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Thunder waived forward Justin Jackson.

Jackson, who was selected by the Sacramento Kings via a pick previously owned by the Portland Trail Blazers in the 2017 NBA Draft, has played for three teams in four seasons. In 33 games with the Thunder this year, he averaged 7.2 points and 2.2 rebounds per game.
Outside of waiving Jackson, The New York Times NBA analyst Marc Stein reported that the Thunder reached agreements with Justin Robinson (10-day) and Jaylen Hoard (two-way). Hoard was under contract with the Blazers as a two-way player for the 2019-20 regular season. While in Portland, the former Wake Forest forward appeared in 13 games.
In OKC, Hoard will join his former teammate Moses Brown—who was also on a two-way contract with the Blazers last season.
