The Oklahoma City Thunder's trade for veteran forward Gordon Hayward didn't live up to expectations.

Following the Thunder's playoff defeat, GM Sam Presti took responsibility for the Hayward trade.

The trade was supposed to be a boost for the Thunder, but Hayward wasn't the right fit.

The Thunder gave up significant assets for Hayward, including young players and draft picks.

Hayward struggled with the Thunder, averaging only 5.3 points in limited playing time.

Hayward and his wife expressed frustration over his lack of playing time.

Hayward is headed to free agency, and the Thunder will be looking for a different path forward.

The Thunder will need to make adjustments to improve their roster after this trade misstep.
