The Thunder waive Alex Abrines here’s why and what’s next

In a surprising move on Saturday, the Thunder released 25-year-old shooting guard Alex Abrines, according to The Athletic.

Abrines, who was expected to be a key piece of the Thunder's rotation, played in all but three of the team's first 29 games.

Abrines played six minutes against the Magic on January 29, and nine minutes against the Heat on February 1.

"He's still battling through some things and wasn't able to be here tonight", coach Billy Donovan said Tuesday after Abrines was included on the active roster but was not at the game.

In introducing the new Orange Vanilla Coke, it hopes to ensure the Coke brand doesn't begin to feel stale with consumers. Customers can expect to see new packaging for the Cherry and Vanilla flavors, too , for a "bit of a facelift".

The organization has helped Abrines deal with his personal matter this season and intends to continue that support.

After reportedly parting ways with Abrines, the Thunder now have just 12 players signed to guaranteed contracts and a pair of two-way contracts.

The draft pick used to select Abrines in 2013 was sent to Oklahoma City as part of the October 2012 trade between Oklahoma City and Houston.
