Royce Young announced he is leaving ESPN and will be hired by the Oklahoma City Thunder.

"I will be joining the Oklahoma City Thunder, working in basketball operations, contributing content to their various platforms (podcasts, TV, website and other things)," wrote Young on Twitter.

"Oklahoma is home. I love this state. And to be able to stay here and work for an organization like the Thunder, doing creative, interesting, impactful things is something I couldn’t turn down."

Young founded the Daily Thunder in 2008 and officially joined ESPN in 2014.
