Will the Oklahoma City Thunder actually be good this season?
That is the question that so many NBA fans are asking as the offseason rolls on and the Thunder seemingly make some great improvements to their roster.
There are other great up-and-comers on the squad too, which suggests the team could be special soon.
ESPN Sources: The Oklahoma City Thunder are hiring Chip Engelland as an assistant coach. Engelland, considered the NBA's preeminent shooting coach, spent 17 years with the Spurs where he's considered to have had an immense impact on Kawhi Leonard and Tony Parker, among others.

And now they have yet another talented coaching pro on the payroll too.
Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that the Thunder are hiring Chip Engelland as an assistant coach.
He is still considered one of the best shooting coaches in the league so you can only imagine what he can provide for the Thunder.
The Thunder Rolls
The Thunder have a very long way to go before they are even close to the NBA playoffs.
OKC ended last season in 14th place in the West and had a record of just 24-58.
Yet it is obvious that the team isn’t at the level it needs to be.
That means that Oklahoma City will need to smash through even tougher opponents and perhaps Engelland is key to that.
