The Oklahoma City Blue, the D-League affiliate of the Thunder, has reached an agreement to bring aboard Reggie Williams, according an official release from the team. Williams spent training camp with the Heat but was waived shortly before opening night after signing a non-guaranteed, minimum salary pact with Miami in mid-August.
The 28-year-old swingman out of VMI signed two 10-day contracts with the Thunder last season, but only appeared in three contests for Oklahoma City. Since a strong rookie year when he posted 15.2 points in 32.6 minutes per game with the Warriors, Williams hasn’t had much of an opportunity to prove his worth on the hardwood. His minutes per game have steadily dropped each year since his rookie campaign in 2009/10.
It’s fair to infer that the Thunder will be keeping a close eye on Williams, given his history with team and the fact that his deal with its minor league affiliate comes in a season when Oklahoma City has struggled to stay healthy.
