Report: OKC Thunder to bring back Mike Muscala

The Oklahoma City Thunder will bring back an old friend to fill their vacant roster spot. Once he clears waivers, veteran center Mike Muscala will sign with the Thunder, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Muscala spent nearly four seasons with the Thunder from 2019 to 2023 before he was traded to the Boston Celtics during the 2023 NBA trade deadline.

He played for the Washington Wizards and Detroit Pistons this season before the latter bought him out.

The 32-year-old has averaged 3.8 points and 2.8 rebounds this season. He’s shot 31.8% from 3 on 2.3 attempts.

The sharpshooting journeyman enjoyed his best seasons in OKC. He shot 39.2% from 3 on 3.8 attempts during his tenure with the Thunder.

After waiving Aleksej Pokusevski, the Thunder had a vacant roster spot to fill, which they have now done so with Muscala. The veteran center provides OKC with spacing and a good locker room presence.
