The Oklahoma City Thunder re-signed forward/center Mike Muscala on Thursday.

The team didn’t announce the contract terms, but Spotrac reported the deal is for one year and $2.64 million.

Muscala, 31, originally joined the Thunder before the 2019-20 season on a two-year, $4.3 million deal.

Muscala was limited to 43 games last season. He last played on Feb. 4, and he later had an arthroscopic procedure and additional lateral ligament repair on his right ankle.

In 2021-22, he averaged 8.0 points and 3.0 rebounds in 13.8 minutes per game, while shooting a career-high 42.9 percent from 3-point range.

Originally a second-round draft pick by the Dallas Mavericks in 2013, he has spent nine NBA seasons with the Atlanta Hawks, Philadelphia 76ers, Los Angeles Lakers and Thunder.

In 432 career games (30 starts), the 6-foot-10 Muscala has averages of 6.2 points and 3.2 rebounds in 15.5 minutes per game.
