The Thunder exercised the third-year options on Josh Huestis and Cameron Payne.
Even though Huestis barely plays, it doesn't cost much to pick him up to see what he can do. In the preseason, he averaged 5.4 points per game. There was hope he'd get in the rotation, but it hasn't happened yet. Oct 29 - 6:06 PM

Josh Huestis believes that he can crack the rotation for the Thunder this season.

After appearing in just five games for the Thunder last season, there's suddenly a lot of playing time available in OKC with Kevin Durant and Serge Ibaka out of the picture. "Of course. Obviously, losing Kevin opens up a lot of minutes," Huestis said. "I'm just trying to be somebody who can step in and contribute, help the team win in whatever capacity that is." Huestis will be competing with Andre Roberson, Kyle Singler, Anthony Morrow and Ersan Ilyasova, so there's certainly a path to minutes in OKC for the 24-year-old combo forward. For now, he's only worth monitoring in very deep leagues.

Josh Huestis will play in 2016 summer league.

While it will be good for the 24-year-old to get some extra experience, Huestis only appeared in five games during the 2015-16 regular season and can be ignored in all fantasy leagues.

Thunder coach Billy Donovan could give Josh Huestis a look during the last three games of the season.

"Going forward, we'll evaluate that," Donovan said. "I'm not going to say we know for sure we're gonna all of a sudden throw him in there the last three games a lot of minutes. But it's good to see him progressing the way he has." Huestis played 21 minutes vs. Portland and had six points, six boards, one block, one steal and two treys with OKC resting their stars, but the Thunder should at least entertain the idea of giving him another look because Kyle Singler hasn't played well at all.

The Thunder are reportedly saving their final roster spot for SF Josh Huestis, whom they selected at No. 29 in the 2014 draft.

Huestis was a regular in the D-League last season but Thunder GM Sam Presti has already indicated that they'd like to call him up, saying in May, "He's someone that we think very highly of ... we think he has a future with the team." Huestis would be buried behind Kevin Durant, Kyle Singler and possibly even Steve Novak on the depth chart.
