Mitch McGary: Professional Bowler?

Mitch McGary was the 21st overall pick in the 2014 draft, joining fellow Michigan players Nik Stauskas and Glenn Robinson III as players taken in the draft. McGary had gotten suspended for a year after his sophomore season for positivity testing for marijuana, forcing him to enter the draft. McGary missed the first fourteen games of the 2014-2015 NBA season before returning on December 4th.

McGary, although only appearing in 32 games, had a decent rookie season for his draft position and looked like a promising young player. However, injuries and drug use (like in college) followed McGary to the NBA and he was ultimately waived before the start of the 2016 season by the Thunder and has yet to return to the NBA. Lately, McGary has taken up bowling, a sport that he loves and one that his mother played for over 30 years.

Josh Huestis: Bayern Munich

After being selected 29th overall by the Thunder in 2014, Josh Huestis became one of the first domestic draft and stash players in NBA history. Instead of heading overseas to play as Devon Hall did, Huestis played in the G-League for a majority of the time all the way up until 2017-2018 where he first started seeing quality rotation minutes.


Unfortunately, Huestis really struggled on offense, shooting 33/29/30 from the field. After the season, Huestis was signed by the San Antonio Spurs before being waived two days later. Huestis recently signed with Bayern Munich and I wish him good luck overseas.
