  • Kevin Hervey: Finds work in Russia

    Hervey signed a one-year contract with Russian club Lokomotiv Kuban in September, Johnny Askounis of Eurohoops.net reports.

    Hervey opted to continue his career overseas after the Thunder declined to re-sign him this offseason, when his one-year, two-way deal with the club expired. As a rookie in 2019-20, Hervey appeared in 10 games for Oklahoma City, averaging 1.7 points and 1.2 rebounds in 5.2 minutes per contest. The Thunder have since reserved their two two-way spots for center Moses Brown and forward Josh Hall.

Through 12 games in the G League, Hervey is averaging 13.7 points on 39.4 percent shooting to go along with 7.7 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.0 blocks.

  • Thunder's Kevin Hervey: Logs one minute in NBA debut

    Hervey finished with zero points (0-1 FG) in one minute during Thursday's 110-97 loss to the Grizzlies.

    Hervey checked in with just over a minute remaining and hoisted one shot attempt in his NBA debut. He has been a standout player of sorts for the Oklahoma City Blue of the G League dating back to last season, and Hervey boasts athleticism and shooting potential that could make him a decent stretch power forward down the line. Still, unless or until he starts seeing the floor beyond garbage time Hervey can likely be avoided across all fantasy formats.

  • Kevin Hervey: Leads team in scoring

    Hervey tallied 23 points (8-18 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 13 rebounds, three steals, two assists and two blocks across 24 minutes during Saturday's 130-114 win over Westchester.

The 23-year-old made noise on the defensive end as well, posting three steals and two blocks. Through three games to start the G League season, Hervey is averaging 11.0 points, 12.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 2.7 blocks across 26.7 minutes. Moving forward, the Texas product will continue to provide meaningful minutes off the bench for the Blue.

  • Kevin Hervey: Team-high scoring tally

    Hervey produced 20 points (8-16 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block across 26 minutes during the Thunder's 92-87 win over the Trail Blazers in a Las Vegas Summer League game Thursday.

  • Kevin Hervey: Continues to impress in win

    Hervey finished with 13 points (5-10 FG, 1-3, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, two assists and a block across 23 minutes in the Thunder's 84-76 win over Team Croatia in the Las Vegas Summer League on Tuesday.

    Hervey paced the Thunder in scoring and rebounding for the second straight contest, though his final numbers in the box score paled in comparison to his massive effort in Monday's overtime win against the 76ers. Hervey continues to impress with his contributions across the board. He'll try to keep the momentum going in Thursday's game against the Trail Blazers.

  • Kevin Hervey: Massive double-double in OT win

    Hervey totaled 17 points (5-15 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 6-8 FT), 17 rebounds, three assists, three steals and two blocks across 30 minutes during the Thunder's 84-81 overtime win over the 76ers in a Las Vegas Summer League game Monday.

    One of the primary purposes of summer league play is to uncover potential diamonds in the rough who may have lacked opportunity previously. Hervey's dominant performance Monday, one that saw him pace the Thunder in both scoring and rebounding, thus served as an excellent example of the type of breakout effort that can elevate a player significantly. Hervey had opened summer league play with an 11-point, 12-rebound double-double as well, so he's been dominant through his first pair of contests in the desert. The 22-year-old forward averaged 11.0 points, 6.7 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.4 blocks and 1.3 steals across 32 games (15 starts) with the G League's OKC Blue last season, and he'll look to continue making his case for a training camp invite during his remaining games in Las Vegas.

    Hervey missed 18 games to begin the year thanks to a bone bruise, but the 6-9 big man put together his best performance this season with a massive 21-21 double-double off the bench. Hervey is averaging 8.0 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in 20.9 minutes per night, but those figures could trend up if he puts together a similar line in the future.

  • Thunder's Kevin Hervey: Notches bench-high 12 points Monday

    Hervey finished Monday's 82-92 summer league win over the Raptors with 12 points (4-6 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 1-4 FT), four rebounds, three assists and one steal across 15 minutes.

    The 57th overall pick of the 2018 NBA Draft, Hervey has been relatively quiet throughout the summer league thus far. However, his performance Monday was a nice breakout, as Hervey shot 66.7 percent from the field and 75 percent from three-point land to score 12 points in just 15 minutes. It was an extremely efficient outing and shows the all-around scoring potential that the 6-foot-8 forward has. Hervey averaged a whopping 20.5 points in his final year of collegiate eligibility at Texas at Arlington.
