The Thunder's agreed to terms with Raymond Felton on Thursday morning to return to Oklahoma on a one-year, $2.4 million deal that reportedly has pushed their luxury tax bill (for player payments made above the soft cap) above the $150 million mark - unprecedented in the history of the league. The Thunder played just 72 minutes last season with neither Westbrook nor Felton on the court, exclusively in garbage time.

The Thunder are Felton's eighth National Basketball Association team in 13 seasons. He provided much-needed energy off the bench and gave Russell Westbrook a break on the rare occasion that he needed it.
