Thunder Release Rob Edwards

October 11, 2021

The Thunder have trimmed their preseason roster to 19 players, announcing today that they’ve waived guard Rob Edwards.

Edwards, who went undrafted out of Arizona State in 2020, played for the Oklahoma City Blue – the Thunder’s G League affiliate – as a rookie in 2020/21. The 6’6″ guard averaged 12.5 PPG and 3.5 RPG with a .440 3PT% in 15 NBAGL games (21.3 MPG).

Edwards was a member of the Thunder’s Summer League team in Las Vegas in August and appears likely to rejoin the Blue for the upcoming G League season, since OKC has his returning rights. Having received an Exhibit 10 deal, he’d be in line for a bonus worth up to $50K if he spends at least 60 days in the NBAGL.

Oklahoma City now has 13 players on guaranteed contracts, four on non-guaranteed deals, and a pair on two-way pacts.
