The Thunder has signed veteran point guard Kevin Ollie. Terms of the deal are unclear, but the contract likely is a one-year deal for the 36-year-old journeyman.
Honestly I don’t really get it, but whatever. I’m sure it was for next to nothing (in NBA terms, of course) and I wouldn’t plan on Ollie being on the roster by year’s end. Over 12 seasons, Ollie has averaged 3.8 ppg and 2.3 apg. Last year in Minnesota he played in 50 games and averaged 4.0 ppg and 2.3 apg as a third string backup point guard. Which is exactly where he’ll be this year behind Russell Westbrook and Shaun Livingston. This will be the ninth NBA roster Ollie has been a part of. And unless he retires, I doubt it will be his last.
