Remember Ryan Gomes? Apparently the Thunder worked him out recently.
Gomes last played in the NBA for the Los Angeles Clippers in 2011-12. He says he has worked out for the Oklahoma City Thunder and the San Antonio Spurs, but is still weighing his options for the upcoming season. He says he is using this summer to improve his off-the-dribble shooting.
“I was never a superstar kind of guy, I was more of fill-in guy, but I’ve always been consistent,” he said. “My last year playing with Los Angeles wasn’t my best year, it was probably my worst in the NBA. So if I go to a team like [the Thunder or Spurs] I know what my roll is already. I’ll come in and try to fill any void they have there.”
Does it mean anything? I wouldn’t think so, at least not yet. The Thunder have a roster spot available, and potentially more with three non-guaranteed contracts on the team. If they want to use the spot, a player like Gomes could be someone they target. Basically, he’ll probably be playing the honorary Ronnie Brewer role of sitting on the bench and doing nothing.
Gomes last played in the NBA for the Clippers, before being amnestied before last season. He spent 2012-13 playing in Germany.
