With the Thunder more than $13 million into the luxury tax the front office is looking to gain some flexibility next summer with the futures of Paul George and Carmelo Anthony up in the air. After getting drafted in the first round in 2014, Huestis deferred his first-round salary to the next season, spending his first season as a professional in the then-D-League with the Oklahoma City Blue. He has spent the last two seasons bouncing in between the Thunder and Blue before working his way into the Thunder rotation for the first six games this season. The 6’7″ forward has already played more minutes this season than his first two seasons with the Thunder but he still belongs to the waiver wire.
