Thunder To Sign Julyan Stone

The Thunder have agreed to a deal with unrestricted free agent shooting guard Julyan Stone, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports (Twitter link). The length and terms of the pact are unknown, though it’s likely a minimum salary training camp deal, but that is merely my speculation.

Stone, 26, saw his last NBA action come during the 2013/14 campaign when he appeared in 21 contests for the Raptors and averaged 0.9 points in 5.7 minutes per game. His NBA career has also includes parts of two seasons spent with the Nuggets. Stone’s career NBA numbers overall are 1.3 PPG, 1.0 RPG, and 1.1 APG to go along with a slash line of .440/.211/.722. The 6’6″ guard spent the 2014/15 season playing for Umana Reyer Venezia of Italy.

The addition of Stone will give the Thunder a roster count of 18 players, including 15 with fully guaranteed deals, thus making it a long shot for Stone to make the regular season roster. OKC may have designs on having him play for its D-League affiliate, though that is just speculation on my part.
