The Thunder recently lost Cameron Payne to a foot and, although he is expected to be back by training camp, the Thunder still took a step today to put a back-up plan in place. It is not confirmed yet but there are reports out that the Thunder have signed Ronnie Price.
I hear Ronnie Price will join the Oklahoma City Thunder, I believe on a 2yr, terms TBD @BBallInsiders

Price played for the Phoenix Suns last year and was not stellar to say the least. Price averaged 19.5 minutes a game and in those minutes only 5.3 points and 2.4 assists. What Price does bring to the team is another veteran presence on the court and on the bench. He has 11 years of NBA experience. In those 11 years he has played for six different teams and he has played for the Suns two different times.
His career averages are 3.8 points, 1.8 assists, 1.2 rebounds, and 0.8 steals a game. The 5.3 points per game that he averaged last season was the most points per game he has averaged in a season for his career. The most minutes he has ever averaged in a season is 22.8 and that was with the 2014-15 Lakers.
