Dakari Johnson: 7-foot…point guard?!

@OKCThunder

Oklahoma City lost to Dallas today in the Orlando Summer League, but Dakari Johnson turned in yet another impressive performance with 18 points (8-11), 2 rebounds, and 2 blocked shots. As we’ve seen throughout the Summer League, Dakari showcased his improved ball-handling skills, even bringing the ball down the floor at times for the Thunder:

After the game, Thunder summer coach Mark Daigneault praised Dakari’s improvement over the past year, telling reporters that they’re enjoying finding new ways to use him on the floor:

Here are Dakari’s complete stats for the Orlando Summer League, which wraps up tomorrow:

    I’m really glad to see his hard work paying off, but he needs to talk to players about being patient and not rushing their decision. He could have been a lottery pick his junior year and would have taken us deep with Ulis and Murray in the back court. Hope he makes the roster, but signing Patterson doesn’t look that promising for him.
