The Oklahoma City Thunder have unveiled their new signing of veteran journeyman forward Ryan Gomes.
The 6'7" Gomes signed from German side Artland Dragons, and the terms of the deal were not disclosed, announced the General Manager Sam Presti on Wednesday.
Gomes, 30, last played in the NBA during the 2011-12 season with the Los Angeles Clippers who then waived him via the amnesty clause and he spent last season playing professionally in Germany with the Dragons.
The amnesty clause allows NBA clubs to terminate a player's contract that are performing below their expectation, under certain conditions.
The 30-year-old, who was the 50th overall pick in the 2005 NBA draft, has appeared in 482 games in the NBA with the Boston Celtics, Minnesota Timberwolves and the LA Clippers and has career averages of 10.2 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 27.9 minutes per game.
The forward from Providence College led the Big East in scoring his senior year, averaging 21.6 points per game and was named Honourable Mention All-American.
The two time All-Big East First Team selection finished his career as Providence’s all-time leading scorer with 2,138 points.
