The Oklahoma City Thunder have exercised their third-year option on guard Josh Giddey, who was a starter on the second team last season despite missing the final 22 games with a hip injury.
The Thunder also exercised the third-year option on guard Tre Mann and the fourth-year option on forward Alexei Pokushevsky.
The 6-foot-8 Giddey, a native of Australia, averaged 12.5 points, 7.8 rebounds and 6.4 assists in 54 games last season. He became the youngest player to record a triple-double at 19 years, 84 days when he accomplished the feat on Jan. 2 against the Dallas Mavericks.
Last season, Mann (21) scored 10.4 points with 2.9 rebounds in 60 games, which was also his first in the NBA. In his second season with the Thunder last season, Pokuševski (20) averaged 7.6 points and 5.2 rebounds in 61 games.
