The Oklahoma City Thunder are waiving big man Aleksej Pokusevski. The Thunder will eat Pokusevski's $5 million salary for this season. He was set to be a free agent following the end of the season.

Despite flashing promise at various points during his first four NBA seasons, Pokusevski was unable to grab hold of a regular role with Oklahoma City. Each time he seemed to have some positive momentum, Pokusevski would pick up and injury. That seemingly set him back to starting over after each period of missed time.
