Oklahoma City Thunder to sign Nazr Mohammed

Published Add your comment

The Oklahoma City Thunder have been in something of a downward spiral lately, with multiple losses that have consisted of throwing away big leads when entering the fourth quarter.

The Thunder, who have gone from challenging the San Antonio Spurs for the second seed in the Western Conference to nearly being overtaken by the LA Clippers, have lost six of their last eight games and need to turn things around quickly or risk a meltdown.

And it looks like OKC have finally made a move to try and spark a change, by reportedly bringing in veteran big man Nazr Mohammed.

This is according to a report from Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports 'The Vertical', who is claiming that the Thunder will sign Mohammed for the rest of the 2015-16 campaign.

"Mohammed, a 17-year NBA veteran, returns to the franchise for which he played parts of two seasons from 2010-12," Charania wrote. "Mohammed was part of the Thunder team that reached the 2012 NBA Finals, playing a backup center role."

After the Cleveland Cavaliers complained earlier in the week that they didn't have an imposing enforcer type of player to bully the opposition, the Thunder have brought in that exact type of player in Mohammed.

Hopefully, the veteran center can help to sort out whatever is wrong in OKC at the moment. Mohammed apparently held a leadership role with the Thunder during his previous stint with the team, so maybe he's being brought in to do exactly that again.

Mohammed hasn't played at all so far this season but did spend last year with the Chicago Bulls - the eighth team of his 18-year career.
