Felicio has appeared in 23 games for the Bulls.
  • The Thunder recalled guard Terrance Ferguson from the organization’s G League affiliate, the Oklahoma City Blue, the team announced in a press release. OKC’s first-round pick from this year’s NBA Draft has appeared in 21 games this season and averaged 1.3 PPG in 6.7 minutes per game.

NBA G League Assignments/Recalls: 12/20/17

Here are Wednesday’s G League assignments and recalls from across the NBA:

NBA G League Assignments/Recalls: 12/19/17

Here are Tuesday’s G League assignments and recalls from around the NBA:

3:36pm:

  • In addition to assigning Muscala to the G League (noted below), the Hawks have also sent Tyler Dorsey to the Erie Bayhawks, the club announced today in a press release.

3:03pm:

  • The Hawks have sent veteran big man Mike Muscala to the G League, the team announced today in a press release. Muscala, who had to sign off on his assignment to the Erie BayHawks, is rehabbing an ankle injury, and this move suggests he’s progressing toward a return.
  • Rookie guard Terrance Ferguson has been assigned to the Oklahoma City Blue, according to a press release issued today by the Thunder. Ferguson figures to suit up tonight for the Thunder’s G League affiliate against the Northern Arizona Suns.

Northwest Notes: Jokic, Ferguson, Aminu

The time is now for Nikola Jokic to blossom into a leader. Nuggets head coach Mike Malone recently told his third-year big man as much given the absence of veteran power forward Paul Millsap in the lineup, Gina Mizell of the Denver Post writes.

The Nuggets have stressed that they need to see Jokic exhibit more leadership qualities, his production on the floor, while impressive, no longer enough for a young team eager to claim its first playoff berth since 2013.

Mizell writes that Jokic came through this week, uncharacteristically speaking up to motivate a lethargic looking Nuggets roster one night and then showing off his mental toughness by returning to the court on an injured ankle the next time out.

NBA G League Assignments/Recalls: 11/15/17

Here are today’s G League assignments and recalls from around the NBA:

  • The Pacers sent center Ike Anigbogu to their Fort Wayne affiliate, the team announced on its website. A second-round pick in June, Anigbogu has seen limited playing time in Indiana, amassing 17 minutes in six games.
  • The Thunder recalled guard Terrance Ferguson, who was sent to Oklahoma City Blue on Tuesday. Ferguson turned in a 24-point performance for the G League team.
  • The Hawks assigned swingman Nicolas Brussino and center Miles Plumlee to their Erie affiliate. Brussino has appeared in four games for Atlanta, while Plumlee has yet to play because of a strained right quad.

NBA G League Assignments/Recalls: 11/14/17

Here are Tuesday’s G League assignments and recalls from around the NBA:

  • The Lakers completed a series of G League moves on Tuesday, assigning Josh Hart and Ivica Zubac to the South Bay Lakers while also recalling Thomas Bryant, per a team release. L.A.’s affiliate plays its next game on Wednesday, so Hart and Zubac should get a chance to play major minutes if they remain on assignment through the day.
  • First-round pick Terrance Ferguson was assigned to the G League by the Thunder, the club announced in a press release. Ferguson took advantage of his opportunity to suit up for the Oklahoma City Blue on Tuesday night, scoring a team-high 24 points in a 122-118 win over the Texas Legends.
  • Second-year center Damian Jones was re-assigned to the G League on Tuesday by the Warriors, according to Mark Medina of The Bay Area New Group (Twitter link). Jones has spent most of the season with the Santa Cruz Warriors, but was recalled for brief stint in Golden State this week.

Thunder Notes: Front Office, Donovan, Ferguson

With Michael Winger headed to the Clippers to become L.A.’s new general manager, the Thunder will once again have to replace a departing executive. As Brett Dawson of The Oklahoman observes, Rich Cho and Rob Hennigan previously left the organization to become GMs with new teams. It’s not yet clear who will replace Winger as assistant GM for the Thunder, but Dawson notes that there are internal options in the front office if GM Sam Presti doesn’t want to make an outside hire.

Here’s more on the Thunder:

  • With Presti having delivered a significant offseason acquisition in the form of Paul George, the pressure in Oklahoma City may now shift to head coach Billy Donovan, who will be tasked with building on last season’s 47-win showing. Berry Tramel of The Oklahoman spoke with Donovan about the new challenges facing him and the Thunder this season.
  • Erik Horne of The Oklahoman examines whether the addition of George has had an impact on 2017/18 ticket sales for the Thunder.
  • Besides Sixers draftee Anzejs Pasecniks, who will play overseas in 2017/18, Terrance Ferguson was the last of this year’s first-round picks to sign with his new NBA team. The fact that Ferguson played in Australia rather than in the NCAA last season contributed to that delay, and as Jonathan Givony of ESPN notes (via Twitter), it also cost the Thunder a little money — OKC paid the Adelaide 36ers a small buyout in order to free up Ferguson.

Northwest Notes: Ferguson, Morrow, Irving, Ingles

Newly signed first-round pick Terrance Ferguson should benefit from the Thunder’s philosophy of giving rookies playing time in the G League, writes Brett Dawson of The Oklahoman. On Saturday, the 19-year-old Australian became the final first-rounder to sign a contract, with the process being delayed while he waited for FIBA clearance. Ferguson brings a reputation as an effective shooter and defender, but played limited minutes in Australia last season and needs to bulk up his 185-pound frame.

The Thunder have used the G League more than any other franchise in their nine years since coming to Oklahoma City, sending players there 120 times. ESPN’s Fran Fraschilla, an authority on international basketball, sees Ferguson as an ideal candidate. “That’s exactly where I think Terrance is gonna benefit,” he said. “He’ll have the benefit of practicing a lot with the NBA team, but when he needs minutes and experience, he’ll get it in the G League.”

There’s more from the Northwest Division:

  • Nearly a month into free agency, former Thunder shooting guard Anthony Morrow is still trying to find a team, notes Berry Tramel of The Oklahoman. Morrow, who will turn 32 in September, was shipped to Chicago at the February trade deadline after spending two and a half years in Oklahoma City. He was expected to get more playing time with the Bulls, but appeared in just nine games and averaged 9.7 minutes after the deal. OKC already has 16 players on its roster, so a return to the Thunder seems unlikely.
  • The Nuggets‘ trade of Carmelo Anthony to the Knicks in 2011 set the standard for what teams expect in return for a star like Kyrie Irving, writes Nick Kosmider of The Denver Post. He believes Denver is among the reported 20 teams that have reached out to the Cavaliers since the news broke that Irving wanted to be dealt. However, Kosmider suggests the Nuggets would have to part with Gary Harris, Jamal Murray and several other pieces to make a deal work, which he states is too high a price for Irving.
  • Signing an extension with the Jazz was an easy decision for Joe Ingles, relays Kyle Goon of The Salt Lake Tribune. After receiving $52MM for the next four years, the third-year small forward said he is happy to continue his career in Utah. “I wanted to be in Utah no matter what,” he said. “It’s the place that got me to where I am. Whether we have all the All-Stars in the world or no All-Stars. Whether we were going to be a 10-win team or an 80-win team. I feel like Utah is the place for me to be and really help the team.”

Thunder Sign First-Round Pick Terrance Ferguson

JULY 29th, 12:42 pm: Ferguson has signed the contract, Royce Young of ESPN.com tweets. FIBA clearance issues prevented him from signing earlier, Young adds.

JULY 27th, 8:55pm: The Thunder have agreed to a four-year deal with Terrance Ferguson, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports (Twitter feed). With Ferguson coming to an agreement with OKC, every first-round pick in the 2017 draft class is now under contract for the 2017/18 season.

The 19-year-old, who played for an Australian team last season, received clearance from FIBA to play in the NBA earlier today. Up until today, Ferguson was not eligible to sign an NBA deal because of the contractual conflict with his international club. He was also unable to play for the Thunder’s Summer League team because of the previously made agreement.

Ferguson, who was selected with the No. 21 overall pick in this offseason’s draft, is set to make roughly $10.33MM over the next four seasons assuming he signs for the standard 120% of the rookie scale.

Terrance Ferguson Obtains FIBA Clearance

Thunder rookie Terrance Ferguson has received clearance from FIBA that will allow him to sign an NBA contract, according to Fred Katz of The Norman Transcript.

Ferguson, the 21st pick in this year’s draft, is the only remaining unsigned first-rounder. He was unable to participate with the Oklahoma City team in the Orlando Summer League because of a contractual conflict with the Adelaide 36ers, the Australian team he played for last season.

Ferguson, 19, spent a single season with Adelaide, averaging 4.6 points and 1.2 rebounds in about 15 minutes per game.

NBA teams are not part of the process of getting clearance, Katz notes. Negotiations are conducted between FIBA and the player’s last team.

Katz adds that the Thunder ran into a similar problem when they signed Norris Cole midway through last season. They had to wait nearly a week for him to obtain clearance from his Chinese team before officially adding him on March 1.
