The Thunder have hired Michael Cage as their new television analyst, the team announced on Wednesday.
Cage replaces Grant Long, who resigned over the summer after reports of financial misconduct surfaced. Long had been with the team the last six seasons.
Cage spent 15 seasons in the NBA from 1984-2000 playing for the Clippers, Sonics, Cavs, 76ers and Nets. He led the league in rebounding in 1988.
“Thank you to the Oklahoma City Thunder for giving me such a wonderful opportunity to join the franchise. I’m looking forward to working with an already terrific broadcast team,” Cage said. “I’ve been involved in basketball, sports broadcasting and charity work for over 40 years and I look forward to getting to know the passionate Thunder fans in Oklahoma! My family and I are excited and feel very blessed.”
His broadcasting experience includes serving as TV analyst for the Memphis Grizzlies, FOX Sports West, Prime Ticket and Westwood One radio.
