Thunder have reportedly waived guard Alex Abrines on Saturday

Thunder release guard Alex Abrines, cite personal issue

The Oklahoma City Thunder has waived guard Alex Abrines, it was announced today by Executive Vice President and General Manager Sam Presti. The Spanish guard will become a free agent once he clears waivers.

After Abrines established himself as a key player for the Thunder to start the season, he has since missed 20 out of the last 22 games for the team, mostly due to personal reasons.

Abrines has appeared in only two games since December 23, sitting out because of personal reasons.

Paul Pogba's incredible stats since the arrival of Solskjaer at Old Trafford
Phil Jones was scathing of Jose Mourinho's management this season ahead of Manchester United's Champions League clash with PSG . The last-ditch, winning games at the end, winning points at the end, that was fantastic.

Nader has averaged 6.1 points and 2.2 rebounds per game, including 39.5 percent from 3, but the Thunder could still use an upgrade on the wing. Basketball aside, we wish him the absolute best and hope he finds peace moving forward.

In the end, it's a mysterious ending for a player that figured to play an important role on the Thunder this season.

Abrines, 25, was selected 32nd overall in the 2013 draft by the Thunder after playing professionally in Spain. He was named the competition's Rising Star in 2016.
