The Oklahoma City Thunder have extended forward Kenrich Williams to a four-year, $27.2 million deal, set to begin in the 2023-23 season. Williams is currently set to make $2 million for the 2022-23 season. Williams was set to enter unrestricted free agency next summer if a new deal was no agreed upon.
Oklahoma City acquired the 27-year-old Williams in the Steven Adams trade, and has emerged as a solid player and a respectable outside shooter. In two seasons with the Thunder, Williams has averaged 7.7 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists while shooting 39.1 percent on over two three-point attempts per game in 115 contests.
The Thunder has spoken highly of Williams throughout his first two seasons, saying he is a ‘locker room leader.’ Williams had also stated multiple times last season that he’d like to retire with the Thunder.
