Mitch McGary’s days with the Oklahoma City Thunder are done.
The Thunder announced on Monday that they have waived the former Michigan forward.
McGary was suspended for five games back in July for reportedly violating the league’s drug policy. He was then suspended an additional 10 games, reportedly for “non-compliance with the league’s drug policy.”
The former Michigan standout was the No. 21 overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft by the Thunder. After helping the Wolverines to the NCAA championship game as a freshman in 2012-13, McGary played in just eight games in an injury-riddled sophomore season. He left school following that second season — and following a failed drug test that would have resulted in a one-year suspension.
In two NBA seasons, McGary played in 52 games — making two starts — averaging 4.4 points and 3.5 rebounds.
