A few months ago, the Oklahoma City Thunder acquired Victor Oladipo, who once played for the team during the 2016-17 season.
But it’s not entirely clear if he will play for them again.
Thunder GM Sam Presti told the press that Oladipo is not expected to attend training camp with the team, according to NBACentral.
The player is still recovering from a knee operation which means he’s not yet ready to be on the court
But will he ever suit up in a Thunder jersey?

Presti claims that Oladipo will still play for the team at some point but not everyone believes that.
The Thunder already have a crowded roster and might not have space for the guard.
When the Miami Heat let go of Oladipo in the summer, it was seen as a cash dump for that team.
The Thunder picked Oladipo up but many people assumed they would waive him at some point.
That means that he could be a free agent very soon.
It’s a surprising change for Oladipo, who is a two-time All-Star.
At one point in his career, he was averaging nearly 24 points a night and led the league in steals.
But he has been battling numerous injuries and has bounced around from team to team.
When he moved to the Heat a couple of seasons ago, certain fans expected it to be the start of his comeback story.
But, sadly, his problems continued and he only played in 50 games during those two seasons.
Will he be able to get back on track with the Thunder?
Or will Oladipo have to move to a different NBA team again?
