Josh Huestis RumorsAll NBA Players
Darnell Mayberry: Sam Presti when asked directly whether Josh Huestis will be on the roster next year: “He’s someone that we think very highly of. We think he has a future with the team. He could be as early as next season.” Presti says OKC has a good body of work from Huestis in the D-League/feels confident in his ability to contribute to the team in the future.
What’s your contractual status with the Thunder? Josh Huestis: This will be a big offseason for me. We haven’t had the chance yet to sit down and discuss it with them. It will come down to the commitments I make and what the team decides. I can’t make any guesses on that yet. Q: Your rights are still held by the Thunder, correct? Josh Huestis: Yes.
As for Huestis’ future, that’s still up in the air. The presumption is that he will be in Oklahoma City next season, as an NBA rookie. But he’s gotten no guarantees. “Right now, I am not really thinking about that,” he said. “I am just thinking about this season and getting better and everything that I can control.”
The Thunder will not consider bringing up their second first-round pick, Josh Huestis. He agreed to spend his rookie season with the Oklahoma City Blue in the NBA D-League, rather than the Thunder, as part of a Draft-day arrangement. While Huestis is doing well so far with the Blue, if there’s one area where OKC still has a couple of bodies, it’s at the wing positions Huestis would probably play.
