Oklahoma City Thunder traded for Paul George this summer, but they aren’t done yet.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Thunder have a signed free agent forward Patrick Patterson to a three-year, $16.4 million deal.

That price is widely considered to be a value for a player of Patterson’s caliber. He was extremely useful to the Raptors the past few seasons, acting as a 3-point shooter, rebounder, and versatile defender.

Via Twitter:

Patterson deal apparently includes a player option on the third year, and he will get to be a starter for a newly-revamped Thunder team that made the playoffs last season.

Patterson represents a value for a team in Oklahoma City that will be trying to retain that stars they’ve added as well as find a roster that works around Russell Westbrook.
