Free-agent forward Ryan Gomes has agreed to a one-year deal with the Oklahoma City Thunder, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Gomes, 30, gives the Thunder a versatile forward with the ability to spread the floor with his shooting. The deal is short of a full guaranteed salary at the veteran's minimum, league sources said.

A seven-year NBA veteran, Gomes was out of the league for the past year after the Los Angeles Clippers used the amnesty provision on him. After failing to capture a job in the NBA a season ago, Gomes played briefly in Germany before parting ways and returning to the United States.

For his career across stops in Boston, Minnesota and Los Angeles, Gomes has averaged 10.2 points and 4.6 rebounds.

Gomes was a second-round pick out of Providence to the Boston Celtics in 2005.
