The Oklahoman's Oklahoma City Thunder beat writer Darnell Mayberry answered NBA Draft and offseason questions from readers on Twitter Thursday. Follow Darnell on Twitter to read more from the Q&A session. Join him next Thursday at 2 p.m. for another Twitter chat and follow our Thunder draft coverage in The Oklahoman every day.
Here are a few of the questions and answers from today's chat: On whether the OKC Thunder will sign a big name free agent, such as Shane Battier or Tayshaun Prince: Highly doubtful. OKC has to save money and be smart [so that it can resign Russell Westbrook, Serge Ibaka and James Harden]. On players the Thunder could trade in the offseason: [Byron] Mullens. He's getting squeezed out. On whether the Thunder will lose any coaches: Gut says [assistant coach Maurice] Cheeks is gone. On the most important bench player next season: [Nick] Collison: Game-changer on D. On what's more likely - Kevin Durant developing a low-post game or Russell Westbrook developing a floater: Kevin Durant. On the Thunder's weakness: Perimeter shooting can improve. On who the Thunder will draft next week: I like [Duke forward Kyle] Singler. On Nate Robinson's value in the trade market: Depends on what a team is trying to unload. Under normal circumstances, not much. Follow Darnell on Twitter
