The Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday signed former Gonzaga center Chet Holmgren and Santa Clara guard Jalen Williams to their rookie-scale contracts.

Holmgren, the No. 2 overall pick in the NBA draft, was named an All-American last season after averaging 14.1 points, 9.9 rebounds, 3.7 blocks and 1.9 assists. He emerged as a strong prospect on both ends of the court and shot 39% from 3-point range on 3.3 attempts per game.

Williams was the 12th pick after averaging 18 points, 4.4 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 1.2 steals last season as a junior. He ranked second in the conference in scoring and finished eighth in program history with 594 total points on the year.

The two players were each introduced last week, along with Ousmane Dieng (11th pick) and Jaylin Williams (34th pick). While the team is still working to sign them, they are all expected to play in the Las Vegas Summer League when the Thunder begin play on July 9.
