Still thinking through the Huestis situation myself, but those are the how/why nuts and bolts -- at least from the Huestis side.

Huestis, Butler says, was fine w/ arrangement. Didn't want to go to Europe, would do D-League thing only for two franchises: OKC, Spurs.

Butler insisted arrangement did not violate rules against pre-draft discussion of player compensation. A gray area, but seems like semantics

Jul 23, 2014

Butler was not sure if Huestis would get drafted in either 1st/2nd round, viewed D-League promise as best means of guaranteeing being picked

Jul 23, 2014

Talked earlier today with Mitchell Butler, agent for Josh Huestis. Said D-League deal was pre-arranged before the draft with OKC. (1/2)
