Bright Future for Jeff Green in Oklahoma City?

Entering his 4th year in the NBA, Jeff Green has established himself as a crucial member of the Oklahoma City Thunder, parlaying the skills the developed at Georgetown into career averages of 14 points and 6 rebounds in 36 minutes per night while playing a willing 3rd fiddle to Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.

While OK City locked up Durant in a long-term deal this summer, questions remain as to its intent regarding Mr. Green.  Clearly Green has a long NBA career ahead of him, but will it be in Oklahoma City?

Of course, there will be some issues. Green is eligible for an extension and he told SI.com on Wednesday that he was holding out hope one could still get done. But the Thunder are expected to wait until next summer to deal with Green, who will be a restricted free agent (giving Oklahoma City the right to match any offer) and under a new collective bargaining agreement, one that will likely lower player salaries significantly.
