The Oklahoma City Thunder have waived forward Isaiah Roby from the roster, per Thunder PR.
Following his college career at Nebraska, Roby netted the highest second-round pick salary in history, to that point, earning a $1.5 million starting salary with the Dallas Mavericks. After a mid-season deal sent Roby to Oklahoma City, he found his footing, logging 109 appearances across three seasons.
Roby played a significant role in the Thunder's developmental process, starting in 62 games in the last two years for the franchise. As a Thunder, the former Cornhusker averaged 9.1 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 1.9 assists per contest.
Despite posting a career-best 10.1 points and recording a 44.4% output from distance this season, the Thunder struggled to field Roby consistent minutes with Jeremiah Robinson-Earl absorbing much of his role.
