According to Wojnarowski, the 23-year-old is “enthusiastic” about signing a new deal with the Thunder and wants to play on a team that will be a contender.
Waiters is eligible to extend his current deal as a member of the 2012 draft class. The deadline to sign a contract extension is Nov. 2.
If Waiters doesn’t sign an extension by the deadline, he will become a restricted free agent in 2016.
The former No. 4 pick in the NBA Draft has averaged 14.0 points and 28.6 minutes over his career.
