The Thunder reportedly allowed veterans Alec Burks and Mike Muscala to reconsider their options after they traded Paul George to L.A., according to a report from Shams Charania of The Athletic.
Burks reportedly decided to change his mind and will sign a one-year deal with the Warriors. He split his time between the Jazz, Cavaliers and Kings last season, averaging 8.8 points on 36.3 shooting from three-point range.

Sources: After Paul George trade, Oklahoma City remained committed to its two veteran deals in Mike Muscala and Alec Burks and allowed both to re-evaluate their situations given the unanticipated change. Muscala will remain with the Thunder.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) July 8, 2019
Muscala reportedly decided to stay with the Thunder. The 6-foot-11 forward averaged 7.0 points and 3.8 rebounds over 64 games with the Sixers and Lakers last season.
