Thunder sign Reggie Williams to a 10 day contract

Williams goes up for the layup in his season with the Bobcats. - Jeremy Brevard-US PRESSWIRE

The Thunder signed shooter Reggie Williams, to a 10 day deal. This will fill the final roster spot.

The Thunder will fill their 15th and final roster spot with the signing of shooting guard, Reggie Williams, the Oklahoman reports.

Williams, 27 years old, played basketball for Virginia Military Institute, where he lead an extremely impressive college career.  Williams averaged 22.8 PPG, scoring an overall 2,526 points in 4 years to become Virginia's Division 1 career scoring leader in college basketball history, surprising huh?

The 6 foot 6 inch man then signed with the French team, JDA Dijon.  After playing in France, the D-League Sioux Fall Skyforce drafted Williams.  He averaged 26 points and 5.7 rebounds before being signed by the Golden State Warriors.  After a succesful season, playing 24 games and averaging 15.2 points, Williams bounced around the NBA and Europe.

After spending time with the Bobcats and Spain, Williams was signed by the Tulsa 66ers, a D League affiliate with the Thunder.  Williams lead the team in scoring until he signed a deal with OKC to fill the 15th and final roster spot.

Reggie Williams already has 4 years of NBA experience under his belt, so adjusting to the team will not take long.  With Tulsa, Williams shot 49.5 percent from the field and 39.5 percent from behind the arc, pretty impressive.  The shooting guard, if played properly, is a serious threat from the 3 point line and in many accounts is considered a sharpshooter.  With Sefolosha and Perkins out temporarily, Williams will receive some minutes but when those two return, it will be difficult for him to find his way on the court.  But for now, Williams should fill the niche of the bench player who can enter and hit a few threes, hopefully he becomes much more than that.

Williams will wear number 14.
