The Oklahoma City Thunder did not re-sign forward Richard Solomon and swingman Scotty Hopson following the expiration of their 10-day contracts, as relayed by Arthur Hill of Hoops Rumors.
Solomon and Hopson were signed Feb. 14. Both had been playing for the Oklahoma City Blue, the Thunder’s G-League, affiliate and are likely headed back there.
Solomon, 26, is averaging 13.6 points and 8.6 rebounds for the Blue this season. He is 6-foot-11 and has twice spent time with the Thunder in training camp, both in 2014 and again before the start of this season. He went undrafted out of Cal in 2014.
Hopson is 6-7 and averaging 17.0 points and 4.5 rebounds in the G-League. Prior to his time with the Blue, the Tennessee product served stints with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Dallas Mavericks. He also spent seven seasons overseas.
Neither appeared in a game for the Thunder during his 10-day stint.
