The Oklahoma City Thunder and Andre Roberson have come to terms on a three year contract worth 30 million dollars.

Roberson is an unrestricted free agent which means the Thunder could have matched any offer he got on the open market and retained his services. But it never got to that point as both sides wanted to do a deal.

Roberson was a second team all defensive choice this past season. He'll return to his natural two guard position with the Thunder having gotten Paul George in a trade. George will take over the small forward position that Roberson played last season.

With Roberson's contract the Thunder have 11 players under contracts that combine for over 125 million, which is six million over the luxury tax line.
