Default Oklahoma City Thunder signs Kevin Ollie

The Thunder has signed veteran point guard Kevin Ollie.

Terms of the deal are unclear, but the contract likely is a one-year deal for the 36-year-old journeyman. The veteran’s minimum in 2009-10 for a player with 10-plus years of experience is $1,306,455.

“We are excited to welcome Kevin Ollie to Oklahoma City,” said Thunder general manager Sam Presti through a statement. “He brings experience, leadership and professionalism to our team as we continue to develop our roster on and off the floor.”

I agree, I hope he does well and teaches one of my favorite PGs Russell Westbrook something.

(EDITED: Do not post full articles. Just a brief portion of an article.)

Good signing. He's a capable 3rd point guard and is a great locker room guy. He's been a big time journeyman for his career, but he's carved out a nice one for himself. Good for him.

He's a veteran. He probably knows a thing or two, even if he wasn't particularly good at it himself.

Yes, he's also had Playoff experience when he played in the 76ers alongside Allen Iverson. Thunder have enough talent to make the playoffs with Kevin Durant, Jeff Green and Russell Westbrook. They'll need more big bodies, but in a few years they'll be contenders. Plus, I believe Ollie is actually a solid defender and could teach Russ a few things.

Shooting and athletic ability held KO back from having a great career. But one of the worst parts about Westbrook's game is his turnovers, and KO is great at limiting turnovers and running an offense. He's a decent defender too, he's got a career in coaching ahead of him. He'll basically serve as a player/coach in OKC.

I like the Thunder quite a bit, they were one of my favorite league pass teams to watch this season, but that's a stretch.

Agreed with all that. Really liked him in his short Indy stint.
