Jeremy Lamb knows he could lose a friend and mentor in Kevin Martin this offseason to free agency. Even so, the young shooting guard is confident next season will bring opportunity for him on the Oklahoma City Thunder.

“They just told me be patient,” Lamb said, “and my time will come.”

The Thunder acquired Lamb in the James Harden trade last offseason.

“Just do all you can to make yourself better because it's only going to help me as well as the team in the long run,” Lamb said.
