The Oklahoma City Thunder have signed guard/forward Kenrich Williams to a multi-year contract extension.
The extension is reportedly for four years, $27.2 million.
During the 2021-22 season, Williams saw time in 49 games and averaged 7.4 points on 46.1 percent shooting, 4.5 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 21.9 minutes per game. The TCU product led all Thunder reserves with 108 total assists last season and scored in double figures in 14 games, third most among Thunder reserves.
Per the Oklahoman, “aside from Williams’ on-court value, he’s perhaps the most respected player in the Thunder’s locker room. His leadership and work ethic has been compared to Nick Collison — a Thunder lifer whose jersey hangs in the rafters at Paycom Center.”
In four NBA seasons with Oklahoma City and New Orleans, Williams has appeared in 200 games (60 starts) and averaged 6.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 22.0 minutes per game.
