The Oklahoma City Thunder have signed free agent point guard Raymond Felton to a one-year contract for the veteran’s minimum, according to ESPN.
Felton, 33, averaged 6.7 points and 2.4 assists in 80 games with the Los Angeles Clippers last season.
The Thunder are bringing Felton in to serve as a viable backup to MVP Russell Westbrook. Oklahoma City’s production dipped dramatically when Westbrook went to the bench last season.
Felton has been a journeyman of sorts, having also spent time with New York, Portland, Denver, Dallas and Charlotte. He spent last season backing up Chris Paul and is said to be excited to serve the same role behind Westbrook, the NBA’s reigning MVP.
Since the end of the season, the Thunder have added Felton, forward Patrick Patterson (from the Toronto Raptors), and most notably, All-Star forward Paul George (trade with Indiana Pacers).
