Less than a week before the season starts, the Thunder front office is cleaning up some of its contractual loose ends.

On Friday afternoon, the organization announced that it would pick up the 2014-15 team options on third-year point guard Reggie Jackson, second-year shooting guard Jeremy Lamb and second-year forward Perry Jones III.

With that news, the Thunder now holds 10 of its 14 current players under contract through at least next season, with Thabo Sefolosha, Hasheem Thabeet, Ryan Gomes and Derek Fisher the exceptions.

Under the rookie pay scale, Jackson’s will receive $2.35 million for the 2014-15 season, Lamb will receive $2.02 million and Jones will receive $1.12 million. All provide the Thunder with young and affordable labor.
