OKC Small Forward: 6’7, 230 lbs; 3rd year, Stanford

NBA Role: (raw) swingman UnderDOG

Josh Huestis: a former Stanford Cardinal trying to find a role in Oklahoma City; young swingman w/ raw tools: Huestis isn’t a crazy athlete but he can really shoot the rock & is a decent defensive prospect with knucklehead/scrapper tendencies (battles amongst the trees, fights for loose balls, dives without hesitating); understands the game – Huestis could culpt a role for himself before too long (backdoor scorer, defender, spot-up shooter…he’ll figure something out) – has paid his dues but can he put it all together?; makings of a two-way role player?

Signature Shot: 3-pointer
