After some confusion between the two sides yesterday, it appears Nerlens Noel has agreed to return to the Oklahoma City Thunder after all.
Last week, Noel turned down his $1.9 million player option with the Thunder to see what else was out there, but yesterday, Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the big man had agreed to return to Oklahoma City. A few hours and one cryptic Instagram post by Nerlens later, Woj reported that Noel asked the Thunder to re-evaluate the deal. After that, Oklahoma City signed Mike Muscala, a 6’11” forward/center. Now, according to Woj, the deal is back on:
