White, Shaun Livingston, Serge Ibaka and 2008 second-round draft pick Devon Hardin. The Thunder also has two first-round picks in the June draft, and both players could also join the team if the Thunder retains both selections. The Thunder also continues to monitor Steven Hill’s development with the Tulsa 66ers, and the 7-foot center could also receive an invitation.

Oklahoma City has yet to make a final decision on which summer league it will participate in, but the Vegas Summer League and the Orlando Pro Summer League are believed to be the leading candidates.

LIVINGSTON LOOKING TO BUILD CONFIDENCE
Livingston, who joined the Thunder on March 31, said he’s attempting to help build the confidence of his teammates like veterans once did with him with the Los Angeles Clippers.

"Sam Cassell, Cuttino Mobley, guys like that came to the Clippers organization, a storied franchise for losing, and they brought confidence, swagger and experience,” Livingston said. "That developed into a playoff run. That’s all this team is missing ... It comes with time, but also you have to give yourself a chance to really learn that and go through it.”
