Default Thunder pretty stacked heading into free agency

The Oklahoman reports:

At first glance, it appears the Thunder is set. OKC has 13 players under contract, a rookie in 24th overall pick Reggie Jackson who'll soon make 14 and a key restricted free agent in Daequan Cook who'll bump the roster to the maximum 15 bodies if he is re-signed as expected.
But let's not forget who's pulling the strings here. GM Sam Presti has proved to be a master monger. If Presti can't pluck a player through outright free agency, he's proven himself to be willing to barter for ballplayers.

Then there is the wild card that is Nate Robinson.

The diminutive and dynamic six-year veteran guard is entering the final year of a contract that will pay him $4.5 million this season. But it's safe to say Robinson is nowhere in the Thunder's plans based off his four games played tally following his mid-season arrival in the trade that brought Kendrick Perkins to town. If the Thunder quickly parts ways with Robinson, whether by trade, waivers or the expected amnesty provision in the new CBA, his departure could open the door just enough for OKC to join the free agency frenzy.

I've heard rumors of Brandon Roy being cut by Portland. If he is cut I'd like to see the Thunder pick up Roy. He is a great shooter and passer which is exactly what we are looking for if we pick up a SG. He could be the 6th man or we could start him and have Harden as the 6th man again. We would be able to give him some nights off towards the end of the season because we have so much young talent. He would be a great player for OKC to have going into the postseason. I think he would be a great fit.
