Thunder Re-Sign Nazr Mohammed

The Oklahoma City Thunder have re-signed 13 year veteran, Nazr Mohammed, to a one year agreement. Sources have reported the one year contract is for $3.75 Million dollars. Mohammed owns career averages of 6.9 points, 5.4 rebounds in 17.9 minutes in 771 career NBA games. He appeared in 24 games (seven starts) for the Thunder after being acquired from the Bobcats on February 24th. Mohammed averaged 6.9 points and 4.8 rebounds in 17.9 minutes per game with Oklahoma City. Originally selected in the first round (29th overall) of the 1998 NBA Draft by the Utah Jazz, Mohammed has appeared in 58 NBA Playoff games during his 13-year career. Mohammed’s career has been highlighted by winning two NCAA Championships (University of Kentucky 1996 and 1998) and an NBA Championship (San Antonio Spurs, 2005). Oklahoma City Thunder are the seventh jersey that Mohammed has put on during his career. “We are pleased to be able to keep Nazr in the Thunder family,” said Presti. “He is a valuable part of our organization both on and off the floor. His professionalism, experience, and on-court play have had a positive impact on our young and evolving roster.” What does it mean for the Thunder? It means that Mohammed, Maynor, Perkins, Ibaka and Collison all locked up for a total of $15.5 million. That’s Slightly more than what Kevin Durant will make next year by himself. Also allows Oklahoma City to put more time into developing Cole Aldrich and Byron Mullens. Both players will likely be back in Tulsa next season.
