The Oklahoma City Thunder have been ravaged by injuries to start the 2014-15 season and this gave the players 10-15 on the roster a chance to show head coach Scott Brooks what they can do when given extended minutes on the floor.

Forward Omri Casspi played his first two years in the NBA with the Sacramento Kings as they picked him with the No. 23 selection in the 2009 draft. Casspi played well for the Kings, but was traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers in June of 2011 for J.J. Hickson. Casspi struggled to find a role with the Cavs over two years and played last season in Houston. Casspi had always wanted to return to Sacramento and he got that option as the New Orleans Pelicans waived him on July 23 after he was acquired on July 14 as part of a multi-player deal with the Rockets. On Sept. 17 he signed a one-year contract with the Kings and he's back to having a major role off the bench with the team.
