Forward Kenrich Williams has agreed to a four-year contract extension with the Oklahoma City Thunder worth $27.2 million, ESPN reported Monday.

Williams, 27, was undrafted out of college in 2018, but has made a home with the Thunder for the past two NBA seasons after playing his first two seasons with the New Orleans Pelicans.

In 2021-22, he averaged 7.4 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.2 assists across 49 games off the bench for Oklahoma City. In 200 career games (60 starts) between the Pelicans and Thunder, Williams has career averages of 6.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game.

Williams played at TCU but started out at New Mexico Junior College after not receiving any Division I offers out of high school.
