Canada’s Luguentz Dort agrees to multi-year deal with Thunder

The Oklahoma City Thunder have signed Montreal native Luguentz Dort to a multi-year contract.

The NBA team announced the signing on its website Wednesday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Dort has become a fixture in the Thunder’s starting five this season, a surprise given that he was undrafted in 2019 before signing a two-way contract with Oklahoma City.

The six-foot-three, 215-pound guard has shown a flair for defence and is often tasked with guarding the opposition’s most dangerous scorer.

He has averaged 6.2 points, with 1.9 rebounds and nearly an assist per game this season.

The Thunder had seven days to sign Dort to a full-time contract after the NBA transaction window opened Tuesday or risk losing him as a restricted free agent in the off-season.
