Thunder Looking For Upside in Darius Bazley

In the 2019 NBA Draft, the Oklahoma City Thunder traded the 21st pick to the Memphis Grizzlies, for the 23rd pick and a 2024 second-rounder. The Thunder used the 23rd pick to select Darius Bazley. The 6-foot-9, 19 year old who committed to Syracuse out of high school, then decided to go to the G-League, and finally decided to not play at all and just work on his craft. This was a big surprise as Bazley was not projected to go to the Thunder. Even though he fits exactly what they look for in players, as he is young, long, and athletic.

Thunder pick Darius Bazley plays in the Jordan Brand Classic.

Bazley was the most interesting prospect in the draft class, as he decided to not play basketball at all this past year. Instead, he was an intern for New Balance where he signed a deal for one million dollars. He spent the past year training for this years NBA Draft. In the Nike EYBL, Bazley shot 46% and was very impressive as you can see here. For the Thunder, the pick is very interesting as they are in a “win now” mode. Most think that Bazley wont be able to play and impact an NBA game for a couple of years. If Russell Westbrook and Paul George want to win now, they dont need a work in progress player. Darius Bazley is most likely not going to come in and help the two all-stars win a ring. However, looking to the future he could be the next star for Oklahoma City.

Sam Presti is a highly thought of General Manager in the league. He has made lots of picks that have been criticized but have turned out beneficial. Some of those are Serge Ibaka, Steven Adams, Terrance Ferguson, and even Russell Westbrook. Bazley could be one of those guys who turns into a great player, and he has all the tools to do that. We will just have to wait and see what the future holds for the Oklahoma City Thunder and the young man from Cincinnati, Ohio.

    In this grand design of things you’ll get a B+ with regard to hard work. Exactly where you lost me was on your facts. You know, as the maxim goes, the devil is in the details… And that couldn’t be much more correct right here. Having said that, let me tell you precisely what did deliver the results. The authoring is certainly rather persuasive and this is possibly why I am making an effort to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, even though I can easily see the leaps in logic you come up with, I am not sure of how you seem to connect your ideas that make the final result. For right now I will subscribe to your issue but hope in the near future you link the facts much better.
