  • Norris Cole: Scores in double digits

    Cole totaled 11 points (5-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt), three rebounds and three assists in 25 minutes Sunday against Maine.

    Cole posted a neat shooting line and also contributed more than usual on the boards and as a distributor. He's scored in double figures in two of his first five regular-season appearances but has struggled to see consistent playing time to this point.

  • Norris Cole: Limited output in return

    Cole (knee) finished with four points (2-8 FG, 0-4 3Pt), two rebounds, four assists and one block in 21 minutes Wednesday against Salt Lake City.

    Cole missed his team's last matchup while tending to a knee injury, but it didn't force him to miss much time. He showed some signs of rust in Wednesday's clash, shooting 25.0 percent from the field and 0-for-4 from downtown.

  • Norris Cole: Has nice all-around night

    Cole tallied 12 points (4-7 FG, 2-5 3PT, 1-1 FT), two rebounds, five assists and one steal in 20 minutes Friday against Motor City.

    Cole was ice cold from beyond the arc in his team's last matchup Wednesday against Sioux Falls (0-for-4), but he redeemed himself by knocking down a pair of triples in this one. He also finished in double figures for the sixth time in seven games so far this season.

  • Norris Cole: Shoulders another heavy workload

    Cole amassed 13 points (5-11 FG, 2-6 3PT, 1-2 FT), two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 40 minutes Sunday against the Charge.

    Cole enjoyed an efficient shooting performance in this one and also recorded a steal for the third straight contest. He's averaging 13.0 points, 2.5 rebounds and 4.5 assists over 34.5 minutes through his first four games of the 2022-23 campaign.

  • Norris Cole: Racks up 42 minutes

    Cole totaled 12 points (4-14 FG, 2-6 3PT, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, nine assists and two steals in 42 minutes Sunday against Fort Wayne.

    Cole didn't light up the scoring column like some of his teammates, but he led the squad in assists and minutes in the 123-130 loss. This workload was somewhat surprising as he logged only 19 minutes in the season opener, but he played well after being given more chances.

  • Norris Cole: Drafted by Grand Rapids

    Cole was selected with the 19th pick of the second round of the 2022-23 G League Draft.

    Cole has six seasons' worth of NBA experience, but he hasn't seen any action in basketball's top league since 2016-17 and most recently spent the 2021-22 season in France with JL Bourg. He appeared in eight contests for JL Bourg, averaging 13.3 points, 3.6 assists and 0.9 rebounds per game.

  • Norris Cole: Signs with Italian club

    Cole signed a contract last week with Sidigas Avellino of the Italian League, Stefan Djordjevic of reports.

    The 29-year-old guard, a first-round pick in 2011, last appeared in the NBA in 2016-17 as a member of the Thunder. After spending last season in Israel with Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv, Cole will stick around in Europe and move over to Italy. If Cole shows well overseas, he could generate renewed interest from NBA teams down the road.

  • Norris Cole: Will head to Euroleague

    Cole has signed a one-year contract with Maccabi Tel Aviv of the Euroleague, international writer David Pick reports.

    Cole opened the 2016-17 campaign playing in the Chinese Basketball Association, but following the completion of that season, he ended up joining the Thunder for the final month of their schedule. He took part in just 13 games, posting averages of 3.3 points and 1.1 assists across 9.6 minutes. Once again, Cole struggled to field interest during free agency this offseason and will now head to Maccabi Tel Aviv. That said, there's a chance he ends up coming back to the States following the completion of their season once again, so it wouldn't be surprising if he ultimately attempted to latch on with a contender in February.
