Collison, who played 14 years with the franchise and had his No. 4 jersey retired, previously served two years as the Thunder’s basketball operations representative.
His previous role was all-encompassing, with duties throughout the organization, but Collison’s new job places him squarely on the front-office track.
Collison will work with Presti on “short-term and long-range initiatives and projects for the Thunder across many facets of basketball operations,” the Thunder announced.
Collison isn’t the only former Thunder player who’s changing jobs within the organization.
Eric Maynor, a point guard who played parts of four seasons in Oklahoma City, has been promoted to Thunder player development coach. Maynor will join Mark Daigneault’s staff after previously working as an assistant with the G League OKC Blue.
It was also announced Tuesday that another former Thunder, Anthony Morrow, will take a one-year position as the team’s lifestyle services and engagement associate.
