The G League draft has concluded with the OKC Thunder affiliate Oklahoma City Blue getting ready for the season by selecting three players.
The OKC Thunder G-League affiliate Oklahoma City Blue roster is starting to take shape. They have Devon Hall and Luguentz Dort signed to two-way contracts. They also have acquired the returning player rights for Beau Beech in a trade that saw the Agua Calente Clippers receive returning players right for Donte Graham.
In addition to these, the Oklahoma City Blue selected three players in the G League draft. The three players picked were forwards Wyatt Walker and Courtney Alexander II as well as guard Bazoumana Kone per okcthunder.com.
The Blue had the 25th pick in the draft where they selected Walker, a 6-9 forward out of North Carolina State who played 36 games. While there he averaged 4.8 points and 4.5 rebounds per game in just 17.9 minutes of action per game. He shot the ball at a very good 58.5 percent from the field.
Walker is able to provide an inside presence where he can take his man off the dribble. He is also an adept passer, being able to find the open man with ease. While he is not the most athletic player, Walker will battle all day down low on both defense and offense.
Courtney Alexander II was selected with the 53rd pick in the draft. He is a 6-8 forward out of Tennessee Tech. He played in 31 games averaging 7.4 points, 8.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.4 steals in just over 28 minutes per game. Alexander is super athletic, a heads up player who has little to no range on his shot.
Dynamite on offense in transition, he is also able to play the passing lanes and his athleticism allows Alexander II to be an effective rim protector, blocking shots one on one as well as weak side help.
Kone, a 6-3 guard was taken with the 81st pick in the draft. He is a product of the German BBL where he played 19 games last season, averaging 5.1 points, 1.6 assists, and 1.5 steals. Kone is athletic with the ability to get into the passing lanes,
He is very quick in transition and also has the ability to pass the ball through the tightest of gaps. While he appears to have little to no outside game, Kone has a tremendous ability to create when penetrating the paint.
