Thunder take Huestis with 29th pick

Posted: Updated:
The Oklahoma City Thunder took Stanford's Josh Huestis with the 29th pick in the NBA Draft on Thursday.

The 6-foot-7 forward averaged 11.2 points, 8.2 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per game as a senior last season and helped the Cardinal reach the Sweet 16. He was named to the Pac-12 Defensive Team both his junior and senior years.

Huestis graduated from CMR High School, where he lead the Rustlers to two Class AA State Championships. He was tabbed the Montana Gatorade Player of the Year and State MVP in his Senior year.

Huestis could help fill a significant void in Oklahoma City. Starting shooting guard Thabo Sefolosha is an unrestricted free agent, and Huestis fits what the Thunder want from that position - a lockdown defender who can knock down open threes.
    
The Thunder took Michigan forward Mitch McGary with the 21st overall pick. McGary, at 6-foot-10 and 255-pounds, averaged 9.5 points and 8.3 rebounds last season.
