Former Thunder player Nick Collison named special assistant to Sam Presti

Nick Collison, who spent his entire playing career in the Seattle SuperSonics and Oklahoma City Thunder organization before joining the Thunder’s front office, received a promotion, the team announced on Tuesday.

The longtime Thunder center was named special assistant to executive vice president and general manager Sam Presti.

Collison spent the last two seasons as basketball operations representative. He played 14 seasons with the organization, during which he averaged 5.9 points and 5.2 rebounds per game.

Another former Thunder player, Anthony Morrow, was also hired. He will be the lifestyle services and engagement associate, the press release said.

Morrow was on the Thunder for two and a half seasons from 2014-17.

The two are among several former OKC players to be on staff. Eric Maynor is the Thunder player development coach, Nazr Mohammed is the general manager of the OKC Blue and a Thunder pro personnel evaluator and Mike Wilks is a Thunder assistant coach.
