The Thunder have signed Dakari Johnson to a two-year deal, sources tell Shams Charania of The Vertical. Shams also noted that the former 48th overall pick back in the 2015 NBA Draft will get his salary guaranteed.

The young center played for the Oklahoma City Thunder G-League team (Oklahoma City Blue). He has played in the G-League for the past two seasons. The Brooklyn native is receiving this contract after a successful  2016/2017 campaign, where he averaged 18.5 points and 7.9 rebounds per game, while shooting 56 percent from the field.

Finally, the former Kentucky Wildcat will most likely fill out the Thunder’s roster by being the team’s third center behind Steven Adams and Enes Kanter. Johnson could actually be a player to watch in a couple of years, as he could breakout.
