Jul 30, 2015 6:02 PM

Josh Huestis, the 29th overall selection in the 2014 NBA draft, has signed a four-year, rookie scale contract with the Oklahoma City Thunder, league sources told RealGM.

Huestis became the first domestic draft-and-stash a year ago out of Stanford University, agreeing to be the Thunder selection and placed into their D-League affiliate for one season. Huestis was in Oklahoma City on Thursday afternoon to sign his deal, which contains two guaranteed seasons and two option years.

Oklahoma City now stands at 15 guaranteed contracts on the roster.

In 44 games for the OKC Blue, Huestis averaged 10.3 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.6 blocks. He spent the majority of the season sharpening his ability to be a three-point shooting, defensive wing for the Thunder in 2015-16.
