Josh Huestis Signed by Thunder After Fulfilling D-League Commitment

For a player who was picked at the end of the first round, Josh Huestis became a pretty big topic of conversation last summer. The reason? He only went in the first round because he agreed to spend a year with Oklahoma City’s D-League affiliate, the OKC Blue, a tactic previously unheard of with collegiate players. That commitment is now over.

In the accompanying post, Charania adds that the deal has two guaranteed years with team options afterwards.

Huestis joins a crowded wing rotation for the Thunder, who, since trading James Harden, have continued to search for the right fit alongside Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook on the perimeter. Past rotation guys include Thabo Sefolosha, Derek Fisher and Daequan Cook, while the team gave up on recent first round picks Jeremy Lamb and Perry Jones, trading them this summer to relieve financial commitments and open roster spaces. That wing group is currently comprised of Huestis, Anthony Morrow, Andre Roberson, Kyle Singler and Dion Waiters.
