Well, good news, you’re in the right place.
I’ve done some research and have found players who played for both the Warriors and the Thunder.
Kevin Durant was selected second overall in the 2007 NBA Draft by the Seattle SuperSonics (now Oklahoma City Thunder). He quickly became the face of the franchise, earning several NBA scoring titles and leading the team to the NBA Finals in 2012.
In 2016, Durant signed with the Golden State Warriors. During his time with the Warriors, Durant won two NBA championships in 2017 and 2018 and was named the NBA Finals MVP both times. In 2019, he left for the Brooklyn Nets. However, he missed the entire 2019-2020 season due to an Achilles injury he suffered in the 2019 NBA Finals.
Over his career, Durant has averaged 27 points, 7 rebounds, and 4 assists per game. He’s also a multiple-time All-Star and has been named to several All-NBA teams.

Avery Johnson was known as a tenacious point guard during his NBA career, spanning from 1988 to 2004, earning a reputation for his leadership and toughness on the court.
His most significant accomplishment as a player came during his tenure with the San Antonio Spurs. In the 1999 NBA Finals, Johnson’s clutch performance was highlighted by hitting the game-winning shot in Game 5, securing the Spurs their first championship.
Despite being undrafted, his perseverance, grit, and clutch play allowed him to carve out an impressive 16-year career in the NBA.

Nate Robinson was selected 21st overall by the Phoenix Suns in the 2005 NBA Draft but was promptly traded to the New York Knicks. With the Knicks, he quickly became a fan favorite due to his energetic plays and ability to score against much taller opponents.
His time in New York showcased his talents, and Robinson became a three-time NBA Slam Dunk Contest champion in 2006, 2009, and 2010.
Throughout his NBA career, Robinson played for multiple teams (8 in total), including the Boston Celtics, Chicago Bulls, and Denver Nuggets, among others. Regardless of the team, his fearless approach and knack for making big plays in crucial moments remained consistent.
Derek Fisher was selected 24th overall by the Los Angeles Lakers in the 1996 NBA Draft. As the Lakers’ point guard, he played a crucial role during the team’s championship runs, especially in the early 2000s when they secured three consecutive titles from 2000 to 2002.
Fisher added two more championships to his resume with the Lakers in 2009 and 2010. One of his most iconic moments came in the 2004 playoffs, where he hit a game-winning shot with just 0.4 seconds left on the clock against the San Antonio Spurs, a play often referred to as the “0.4 shot.”
Beyond the Lakers, Fisher played for several other teams, including the Warriors, Jazz, Thunder, and Mavericks. Over his 18-year playing career, he was revered not just for his basketball skills but also for his leadership, serving as the president of the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) from 2006 to 2013.
