It's been nearly two years since former CMR Rustler Josh Huestis was drafted in the first round of the NBA draft. Today he finally appeared in an NBA game with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Huestis nearly played five minutes in the 4th Quarter, where he hit a three pointer. The Great Falls native finished the game with three points on 1-1 shooting, 0-2 from the free throw line.
Huestis started his professional career with the Thunder's D-League affiliate, the OKC Blue. He had been bouncing between the Blue and Thunder all season before finally getting play time in the NBA.
