OKC Thunder reportedly signs two undrafted free agents
The Thunder reportedly added two undrafted free agents Thursday morning.
Josh Hall, a 6-foot-8 forward, will sign with the Thunder, according to Stockrisers, a basketball recruiting website.
And 7-foot center Omer Yurtseven will sign an Exhibit 10 contract with the Thunder, according to Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes. An Exhibit 10 contract can be converted into a two-way contract.
Both have a North Carolina State connection.

Yurtseven played two seasons at N.C. State before transferring to Georgetown. He was named to the All-ACC third team as a sophomore with the Wolfpack.
Yurtseven, originally from Istanbul, averaged 15.5 points and 9.8 rebounds per game in his senior season at Georgetown.
Hall, the 31st-ranked prospect in the 2020 recruiting class, committed to N.C. State last November, but he opted to forgo college because he was old enough at 19 to declare for the draft.
It's virtually the same path new Thunder point guard Jalen Lecque took. Lecque was a four-star prospect in the 2019 class, committed to N.C. State and declared for the draft at 19 instead of attending college.
The Thunder has had recent success with an undrafted free agent.
Guard Luguentz Dort signed with the Thunder after going undrafted last summer. Dort quickly emerged from a two-way contract player to a full-time starter.
“Not being drafted isn’t the end, use it as fuel,” Dort tweeted Wednesday. “It’s just a number.”
