Although they already signed veteran swingman Caron Butler after he and the Milwaukee Bucks agreed to a buyout, the Oklahoma Thunder decided to add another wing to their roster, agreeing to a 10-day contract with Reggie Williams.
According to Darnell Mayberry of the Oklahoman, Williams has been excellent in the NBA’s Developmental League.
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 spent last two years with the Charlotte Bobcats after spending the first two years of his career with the Golden State Warriors.
Over those four years, he averaged 3.7 points, 1.3 rebounds and 1.0 assists per game.
