Terrance Ferguson    G  Thunder

 

 

Terrance Ferguson said he expects to be a 3-and-D guy early in his career. The Thunder drafted him because they believe he can bury some treys, which obviously was a huge problem for them. Ferguson barely played in Australia last year with just 4.6 points per game in 15.1 minutes, so he's a project. He did say he can add stuff to his game, but there's little need for him to create offense when Russell Westbrook is his teammate.

Terrance Ferguson    G  Thunder

 

 

Oklahoma City Thunder selects G Terrance Ferguson with the 21st selection in the 2017 NBA Draft. The 19-year-old Dallas native opted to play in Australia instead of the NCAA, averaging 4.6 points, 1.2 boards, 0.6 assists and 0.7 treys in just 15.1 minutes with Adelaide. He does carry some classic appeal standing t 6’7" with a 6’9" wingspan and 38-inch max vert, but Ferguson has a long way to go regarding versatility to his game as a scorer and creating for his teammates. As has become usual, it's an interesting first-round developmental gamble for the Thunder.

Victor Oladipo    G  Thunder

 

 

Victor Oladipo has dropped 10 pounds in the last three weeks during his offseason training. Muscle Watch! In the Instagram post, Oladipo looks a little more toned and he also said he's going to continue his offseason training to get in better shape. Due to Russell Westbrook shattering the record for usage rate and Oladipo underperforming, he couldn't build off his strong finish in his Magic career. He'll be sliding into the middle rounds this year, but there is still plenty of upside, especially with VO expected to play more point guard.

Enes Kanter    F/C  Thunder

 

 

Enes Kanter's father has been detained in Turkey, the country's official news agency reported Friday. Mehmet Kanter was detained in his Istanbul home for an investigation undertaken by a prosecutor's office in northwestern Turkey, according to the Anadolu news agency. Per the AP, "The Kanters have become bigger targets than usual lately as Enes Kanter has continued to be a vocal supporter of U.S.-based cleric Fethullah Gulen's movement and a critic of Turkish President Erdogan."

Jerami Grant    F  Thunder

 

 

Jerami Grant said getting stronger is one of his top priorities this summer. "I think they're doing a great job here of getting me stronger in certain areas," Grant said. "I think they're specific to what we want to do with my body. And on the court, being able to read the defense, slow my game down a little bit, not moving 100 miles an hour." Grant had some nice moments in OKC this season, but he only played 19.1 minutes per game with averages of 5.4 points, 2.6 rebounds, 1.0 blocks and 0.6 triples on 46.9 percent shooting. He's an elite shot blocker at the small forward position and shot 37.7 percent from beyond the arc, so the 23-year-old will be hoping that a strong offseason will help him earn a larger role in 2017-18.

Doug McDermott    F  Thunder

 

 

Thunder general manager Sam Presti said Doug McDermott has the "versatility to play a little [power forward]" next season. One of McDermott's goals this offseason is to "add strength without bulk," as he wants to match up with bigger players without sacrificing mobility. A career 39.4-percent 3-point shooter, he also said he wants to prove he's "more than a catch-and-shoot player" and wants to improve his perimeter defense. Enes Kanter is rumored to be on the trade block and Taj Gibson is a free agent this summer, so there's certainly a path to minutes if McDermott is able to play some four. His upside isn't the greatest, so fantasy owners shouldn't be expecting him to be more than a 3-point specialist at this stage of his career.

Enes Kanter    F/C  Thunder

 

 

Turkey has issued a warrant for the arrest of Enes Kanter, according to a report from a Turkish pro-government publication. According to the Daily Sabah in Turkey, Kanter is sought for being a member of a "terror group." A Turkish prosecutor opened an investigation into Kanter’s "alleged membership of an armed terrorist organization," according to the report. Kanter was detained last week in Romania, but was able to travel to London and eventually America.

Miles Simon    G  Thunder

 

 

The Lakers are finalizing a deal to hire Miles Simon to fill the coaching vacancy left by Theo Robertson. He's best known for being the Most Outstanding Player in the 1997 Final Four, but Simon did only play in five games for his NBA career. Coach Luke Walton also gets another Arizona Wildcat on his bench.

Enes Kanter    F/C  Thunder

 

 

Enes Kanter has made it back to the United States. Kanter was detained in Romania because his Turkish passport was suddenly canceled, but he's convinced that he was held because of his political views. Kanter is scheduled to hold a press conference later this afternoon.
