Thunder Draft Picks Introduced To Oklahoma City

Thunder first round selections Mitch McGary and Josh Heustis were introduced to media and fans at the Oklahoma History Center today.

McGary was a two-year player from the University of Michigan.

In his freshman season, he helped lead the Wolverines to the national title game and raised this draft status as well.

In December of 2013, McGary injured and had surgery on his back, resulting in him playing just eight games this past season.

McGary says he plans to play on the Thunder’s summer league squad.

During the NCAA tournament and while he was still out with the injury, the 22-year-old tested positive for marijuana in a drug test.

Facing a possible one year suspension by the NCAA McGary decided to turn pro.

The Thunder took the Indiana native with the 21st overall pick in the NBA draft.

With their second pick in the first round the Thunder took Josh Heustis of Stanford University with the 29th overall pick.

The four-year college player isn’t the only professional athlete in his family.

Heustis’ biological brother, Christian Dean, plays for Major League Soccer’s Vancouver Whitecaps.

Thunder General Manager, Sam Presti says he plans for Heustis to spend most of his time with the Thunder’s developmental team, the Tulsa 66ers.

Watch as McGary and Heustis are introduced to Oklahoma City and hear how the feel to play for the Thunder.
