The Oklahoma City Thunder have signed Reggie Williams to a 10-day contract which will fill the one empty roster spot the Thunder had.

Williams has been playing for the Tulsa 66ers this year where in 19 games he is leading the team with 21.1 points per game and also averaging 5.4 rebounds and 4.9 assists while shooting 39.5 percent from behind the three-point line.
Williams was undrafted in 2008 before signing with the Golden State Warriors, where he played his first two seasons. He played the last two seasons with the Charlotte Bobcats.
Williams is a career 37.1 percent three-point shooter.
The Thunder won’t be asking much from Williams and he may not play a meaningful minute the rest of the season. But one thing he certainly can do is shoot and there’s nothing wrong with having depth with perimeter shooters.
Williams has had experience being a high-volume scorer so he’s not afraid to fill it up. At the Virginia Military Institute, he played four years and the last two averaged 28.1 and 27.8 points per game. In those days, VMI played the fastest pace in all of college averaging close to 100 points per game.
Williams has decent size at 6-foot-6 and 210 pounds but he’s not known for paying much defense.
By the time the playoffs role around and Thabo Sefolosha is healthy and Caron Butler has found his niche with the team, it’ll be hard for Williams to find minutes.
