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.

Thunder general manager Sam Presti said that Josh Huestis could be on the roster as early as next season.

"He's someone that we think very highly of," Presti said when asked if Huestis could be on the roster next season. "We think he has a future with the team. He could be as early as next season." Huestis was the No. 29 pick in the 2014 draft, but he spent the entire 2014-15 campaign in the D-League and averaged 10.3 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 44 appearances. Huestis would likely have a very limited role if the Thunder decide to give him a shot, so he isn't on the fantasy radar at the moment.

Josh Huestis, who was the Thunder's No. 29 pick in the 2014 draft, said that he is willing to stay in the D-League next season.

"I'm willing to do whatever it is they believe will be best for me," Huestis said. "There are a lot of paths to take to the NBA. If that was fine I'd be OK with it as long as I knew it would make me a better player." Huestis spent the entire 2014-15 season in the D-League, averaging 10.3 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 44 appearances. It sounds like he won't be a part of OKC's immediate plans next season, but we will track his progress closely and will let you know if gets a chance with the Thunder.

Josh Huestis could start his career off in the D-League.

The Thunder were expected to take an overseas player so they could stash him, but they may be the first team to draft a USA first rounder at 29th in the draft and stash him in the D-League. The developmental league continues to grow and a move like this would help. If the Thunder go this route, it would save them a roster spot while keeping Huestis' restricted free agency rights in his fourth year.

With the No. 29 pick in Thursday's draft, the Thunder took Stanford SF Josh Huestis.

Scott Brooks relaxed his rotations to include young players more during the 2013-14 season, even if Thunder fans painfully watching Kendrick Perkins, Derek Fisher, Caron Butler and Thabo Sefolosha would probably disagree. In any event, Huestis' fantasy value isn't too bright on an OKC team with championship aspirations. He averaged a pedestrian 11.2 points, 1.2 assists and 0.6 steals during his senior season, but his versatility was evident in his 8.2 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per game. He's a solid athlete with plenty of defensive potential who should eventually emerge as a role-player off OKC's bench.
