The Thunder is filling its 15th and final roster spot with the signing of shooting guard Reggie Williams to a 10-day contract, The Oklahoman has learned.
The team is expected to announce the signing Thursday morning.
Williams, a 6-foot-6 sharpshooter with four years of NBA experience, is being called up from the Thunder-owned Tulsa 66ers of the NBA Development League. He is averaging a team-leading 21.1 points per game for the 66ers, along with 5.4 rebounds and 4.9 assists in 37.5 minutes. In 19 games this season, 15 as a starter, Williams has shot 49.5 percent from the field and 39.5 percent from behind the 3-point line. He is the D-League’s reigning Performer of the Week for his efforts in leading the 66ers to a 3-0 record while averaging 25.3 points, 7.8 rebounds and 4.3 assists and 2.3 steals.
Williams, 27, went undrafted out of Virginia Military Institute in 2008 before latching on with Golden State midway through the 2009-10 season. He spent two seasons with the Warriors before signing with Charlotte, where he played the past two seasons.
In 177 NBA games, Williams holds career averages of 8.6 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.6 assists, while shooting 37.1 percent on 3-pointers.
Williams is expected to join the Thunder in Phoenix for Thursday’s game against the Suns.
