Earlier this year, Long filed for bankruptcy in federal court. His initial paperwork included two out-of-state casinos that Long said he owed more than $300,000 — $195,000 to the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority and $125,000 to Bally’s Park Place. The bankruptcy case was later dismissed. According to records in his filing, Long earned $166,000 from the Thunder in 2013 and $193,000 in 2012. He listed his assets as $65,500 in personal property, including $40,000 for a 2009 Cadillac Escalade and $20,000 for a 2011 Infinity. Oklahoman
