The Oklahoma City Thunder plan to sign free agent guard Isaiah Joe to multi-year deal. To create the roster space for Joe, Oklahoma City plans to waive guard David Nwaba.

Joe cleared waivers on Saturday after recently being waived by the Philadelphia 76ers. He's shown shooting ability, which the Thunder roster is short on.

Nwaba was part of the eight-player trade where the Thunder acquired him, Trey Burke, Marquese Chriss and Sterling Brown from the Houston Rockets for Derrick Favors, Moe Harkless, Ty Jerome and Theo Maledon.

The trade was made for salary cap reasons for both the Thunder and Rockets. Oklahoma City has already waived Sterling Brown, and is likely to waive Burke and Chriss, along with Nwaba, in coming days. The Rockets have waived all four players they acquired from the Thunder in the deal.
