It’s unclear what the Thunder’s plans are for Pleiss, if in fact these reports are true. However, the Spanish club can’t force Pleiss into the league, as the Thunder hold his draft rights and all the cards in this situation. It’s possible OKC could send his rights to another team as part of a trade or it could bring him in if it feels it is out of the race for Pau Gasol.
