McGruder Signs with Thunder

Rodney McGruder has signed a contract with the NBA’s Oklahoma City Thunder, according to the Thunder’s official website. Terms of the deal have not been officially released.

The Thunder also announced the signing of former Iowa State guard Diante Garrett along with McGruder.
