Perry Jones III sat on the bench just before the start of his first game as a pro player and, perhaps for the first time, realized exactly where he was.
Even then, it seemed surreal.
"I was on the bench like 'I can't believe I'm here,'" Jones said. "That's what I told a couple of my teammates."
But never was the 28th overall pick nervous. In fact, in his summer league debut Jones put on a dazzling display that left everyone talking about what a steal the Oklahoma City got when he unexpectedly fell into the Thunder's lap on draft night.
With 16 points and eight rebounds in 29 minutes, Jones stood as one of the few bright spots for the Thunder in a 73-65 loss to Boston on Monday at the Orlando Pro Summer League.
