Luguentz Dort News
Oklahoma City Thunder guard Luguentz Dort (shoulder) is expected to be 100 percent healthy heading into training camp. This is great to hear after Dort underwent surgery on his shoulder in March. The Thunder have invested quite a lot of money in Dort with a five year deal worth $87.5 million. He's expected to be a key player for this organization going forward. He's strong on both sides of the court and could be a borderline top-100 player, assuming everything falls into place for him.
Oklahoma City Thunder guard Luguentz Dort won't be going anywhere this offseason. As expected, the young guard has agreed to a new deal with the organization. Dort agreed to a five-year $87.5 million extension. The 23-year-old has tremendous upside on defense and can be a legitimate asset to this young core. He has been improving as a scorer, which is great to see. Clearly, the Thunder don't want to see Dort leave anytime soon. Hopefully, he'll continue to improve and boost his fantasy value next season.
Oklahoma City Thunder guard Luguentz Dort had his team option declined by the organization on Wednesday. That means, Dort will become a restricted free agent this summer. The two sides can now discuss a new deal since the team option was only worth $1.9 million for next season. It'd be shocking to see the Thunder let Dort leave as he appears to be part of their future core. Possibly, the Thunder just want to see what any other organization would offer Dort. A move to a more competitive roster might actually hurt his fantasy value as Dort currently gets significant minutes on the rebuilding Thunder roster.
Oklahoma City Thunder forward Luguentz Dort is anticipated to have his contract fully guaranteed for 2022-23. The 23-year-old has a team option, which, if declined, would make him a restricted free agent. Yet, it appears the club has other plans, with a trade remaining a possibility. Dort averaged 17.2 points and 4.2 rebounds throughout 51 games last season before going down with a shoulder injury in February. The Trail Blazers have expressed interest in acquiring his services, especially considering he is due to only make around $2 million. Nonetheless, he has streaming potential for managers no matter where he ends up, although he isn't expected to be a consistent fantasy contributor during the year.
