2014 NBA Draft: Thunder get a B for picking Josh Huestis at No. 29
With the 29th pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, the Oklahoma City Thunder selected Josh Huestis out of Stanford.
The Oklahoma City Thunder selected Stanford forward Josh Heustis with the No. 29 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft.
Huestis is a defensive specialist who can guard both the small forward and the shooting guard positions. He's unlikely to play for the Thunder any time soon with Kevin Durant, Andre Roberson, and Perry Jones at the small forward position. But if he can develop an outside shot that he didn't show in college, he can carve out playing time.
Matt Moore of CBSSports.com thinks it's a solid pick for the Thunder but isn't blown away.
Thunder: Josh Huestis: B: He's a reach, but they need wing depth especially defenesively, and size.— Matt Moore CBS (@MattMooreCBS) June 27, 2014
He's a 6'7" small forward, who has a 7'1" wingspan. In four years at Stanford, his highest scoring average was 11.2 points during his senior season. He also averaged 8.2 rebounds and 1.9 blocks as a senior.
