In an effort to add a tough-minded backcourt presence, the Thunder has signed free agent guard Royal Ivey to a contract.

"We are pleased to welcome Royal to the Thunder organization," general manager Sam Presti said in a statement Wednesday. "His defensive mentality, competitiveness and well-documented professionalism adds depth to our backcourt and strengthens the identity of our basketball team."

A former standout at Texas, the 6-foot-4 Ivey can play multiple positions. He also is known for his leadership and high character, much like recently departed guard Kevin Ollie, but the 28-year-old Ivey is nine years younger.

Ivey is 28 has appeared in 378 NBA games over six seasons, averaging 3.6 points, 1.2 assists and 1.2 rebounds in 13.1 minutes per contest with Atlanta, Milwaukee and Philadelphia. Last season, he averaged 2.1 points and 5.6 minutes with the Bucks and 76ers.

Per team policy, terms of the agreement were not announced.
