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. Jul 19 - 9:13 PM

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.
