Oklahoma City two-way players Josh Hall and Moses Brown have had limited court time with the Thunder.
That’s why head coach Mark Daigneault is looking forward to them taking part in the G League bubble tournament with the OKC Blue.
“The biggest thing for guys like them that are this early in their careers is being able to be to go out there and apply it,” Daigneault said.
Hall has scored 12 points over six appearances with the Thunder. Six of those points came in the game against the Denver Nuggets, but then he missed the next four games due to coronavirus health and safety protocols.
He played five minutes in the blowout loss against the Brooklyn Nets on Friday, where he scored three points.
Brown, a second-year NBA player, has 21 points in six appearances. He already has more points and almost as many rebounds as he did last year with the Portland Trail Blazers.
Daigneault, who coached the Blue from 2014-19, said the G League affiliate tries to operate with the same culture as the NBA team.
“The beauty of the Blue is the consistency between the two programs,” he said. “We try to replicate everything about the Thunder there, especially from a cultural standpoint.”
The G League tournament will feature 18 teams. Seventeen are NBA affiliates and the other is the G League Ignite, a one-year developmental program for elite prospects.
It will take place at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Disney World in Orlando, Florida.
“We take those minutes very seriously and we’re really looking forward to watching those guys and the other guys with the Blue,” Daigneault said.
The Blue’s first game is scheduled to tip off on Feb. 11 at 10:30 a.m.
