Hollis Thompson Signs Three-Year Contract with Thunder

by Rodger Bohn / @rodgerbohn

Former Georgetown swingman Hollis Thompson has agreed to a three-year contract with the Oklahoma City Thunder. The deal is partially guaranteed with team option for the second and third years. Thompson will not play in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas while still rehabbing a groin injury that was the primary reason he went undrafted last month’s Draft.

Arguably the top shooter in the ’12 class, Thompson brings the Thunder another lanky player who is able to stretch the defense. While watching him train at Impact Basketball in Las Vegas, we saw him shoot 44-50 during one stretch from the NBA three-point line and routinely 80 percent from beyond the line. Shooting over 43 percent from deep in each of his three years at Georgetown, he’ll provide a viable shooting threat to an Oklahoma City team that ranked 11th in the NBA last season in team three-point percentage.

    it seems like it is sometimes better to go undrafted then drafted in the second round, i think kevin jones got a similar partially guaranteed contract from clevelenad


    I saw PJ3 playing in the summer league, and I seriously think OKC stole the draft.
