The 6’11” big man played six games with the Lakers’ Summer League team, averaging 6.8 PPG and 5.0 RPG in 19.1 MPG.
Killeya-Jones went undrafted in 2020 after passing through three major colleges, including a 14-game stint with Kentucky. He played for Hapoel Gilboa Galil of the Israeli Premier League last season.
He also played for Great Britain at FIBA EuroBasket 2022 qualifiers.
The addition of Killeya-Jones adds to Oklahoma City’s overload of players. He’ll be the 23rd player under contract — the Thunder will have to trim the roster to 20 by training camp.
Killeya-Jones will likely be waived before the regular season begins and subsequently join the Thunder’s G League team, the Oklahoma City Blue, as an affiliate player. In that scenario, he’d receive a $50K bonus if he spends at least 60 days with the Blue.
