Report: Thunder sign Jared Butler to two-way deal
The Oklahoma City Thunder have filled in their vacant two-way spot.
The Thunder signed guard Jared Butler to a two-way deal, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
The second-year-player has spent this season with the G League’s Grand Rapid Golds — the affiliate of the Denver Nuggets. With the addition, the Thunder’s two two-way spots are now occupied by Olivier Sarr and Butler.
Butler spent three college seasons at Baylor from 2018 to 2021.
Butler was drafted 40th overall in the second round of the 2021 NBA draft by the Utah Jazz, where he spent last season between the NBA and G League before being waived prior to the start of this season.
In 42 career games, Butler averages 3.8 points on 40.4% shooting.
The two-way spots were held by Eugene Omoruyi and Lindy Waters III for most of the season before both of them were eventually signed onto standard NBA deals with the former being recently waived and the latter recently graduating to the 15-man roster.
