Ryan Gomes? Ryan Gomes. Now who says the Thunder aren’t going for it all, huh?
Per Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the Thunder have reached a one-year agreement with Gomes for the veteran minimum.
What is would appear to mean is that one of the Thunder’s three non-guaranteed players will have to be released. The Thunder have 15 players under contract already, and are just a couple hundred thousand dollars under the luxury tax threshold.
However, Gomes deal could also be non-guaranteed or even partially guaranteed, meaning this might just be essentially a training camp invite. But then again, with Ronnie Brewer leaving the team as an unrestricted free agent, I suppose the Thunder could use another veteran small forward to sit on the bench and never play.
Gomes, 30, is a 6-7 small forward that spent last season in Germany and has played seven seasons in the NBA. He last played for the Clippers in 2011-12, appearing in 32 games.
