Ferguson is turning into the 3 and D wing OKC has been waiting for

Ferguson is turning into the 3 and D wing OKC has been waiting for

With a core of Steven Adams, Paul George, and Russell Westbrook, the Thunder have one of the highest ceilings in the NBA. But just as in the days of the Westbrook-Durant-Ibaka core, the Thunder have long-felt to be one 3-and-D wing short. Terrance Ferguson was the latest draftee in a long list of attempts to find that wing- but wonder of wonders, he has looked very much like the wing OKC has been dreaming of recently. Over OKC’s last 10 games, T-Ferg (who will henceforth be known as 3-Ferg if he keeps shooting this way) has hit 50% of his 3 point attempts on nearly 4 attempts per game....
