The Oklahoma City Thunder have signed Yannis Morin to a one-year deal according to BeBasket.
Morin, 23, played in the French Pro B last season for Le Havre. He averaged 6.8 points per game on 40.6 percent shooting. He also pulled down 7.4 rebounds in 24 minutes per game. During summer league for the Thunder, Morin averaged only 2.2 points in 13.5 minutes per game backing up Dakari Johnson.
Morin has never played by the French national team but did play with the U-18 team in 2010.
It’s assumed this is a training camp agreement as the Thunder already 16 committed roster spots. They still can waive Semaj Christon and potentially Kyle Singler. They could stretch Singler’s contract up to seven years.
Oklahoma City often invites 2-3 players into camp with the intention of going to the G-League‘s Oklahoma City Blue. With Johnson going to Oklahoma City, the Blue will have a void at center.
Training camp will start at the end of September, which the league starting at one of the earliest days in recent NBA history.We invite you to follow Thunder Digest on Twitter and like Thunder Digest on Facebook.
