Thunder Sign Hollis Thompson

July 11 at 4:20pm CST By Luke Adams

The Thunder have signed Hollis Thompson to a three-year deal, agent Seth Cohen tells Bobby Bancroft of 106.7 The Fan (Twitter link). Darnell Mayberry of the Oklahoman confirms the agreement, writing that Thompson will receive a partially-guaranteed contract worth the rookie minimum (about $473K) for 2012/13.

Thompson, a 6'8" junior out of Georgetown, went undrafted in June, but quickly found a spot at the back of the Thunder's roster. The 21-year-old becomes the 15th player under contract for next season for Oklahoma City, meaning players like Derek Fisher, Royal Ivey, and Nazr Mohammed almost certainly won't be back.


Perry Jone III, Thabeet and now Thompson ... Nice signings for a second place finish.
