Muscala was linked to a number of teams but is expected to return to OKC. He formerly played for the Thunder, from the 2019-20 season to the 2022-23 season. Since then, Muscala has played for the Boston Celtics, Washington Wizards, and Detroit Pistons.

Muscala has averaged 3.8 points per game over 37 games between Washington and Detroit in 2023-24, shooting 35.8 percent from the field and 31.8 percent from three. Muscala has also averaged just 13.8 minutes per game.

Muscala’s career shooting percentage is 45.2 percent from the field and 37.6 percent from beyond the arc. Perhaps he can develop into a valuable offensive weapon off the bench for Oklahoma City. Having a depth player like Muscala on the roster will benefit the Thunder as they prepare for the postseason.
