Terrance Ferguson will literally hand out his stuff to people, no strings attached

Oklahoma City Thunder shooting guard Terrance Ferguson is not exactly a household name. Nonetheless, the 20-year-old is putting his fledgling celebrity status to good use.

Ferguson recently shared his intention to give away a few of his personal items via Instagram. The 6-foot-7 guard has a shoe deal with Under Armour, and plans to hand out a signed pair of his customized kicks. He is also looking to part ways with a customized X-Box console.

Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Ferguson went to the Advanced Preparatory International High School in Dallas, Texas. As a senior, he was considered as a top-20 recruit in the country and was heavily recruited by several college basketball programs.

After a string of commitments and de-commitments with Alabama and Arizona, Ferguson would end up playing professionally abroad instead of spending a year in college. He played in Australia with the Adelaide 36ers as an 18-year-old. In his single season with the 36ers, Ferguson averaged 4.6 points and 1.2 rebounds in 15.2 minutes per contest.

Following his stint abroad, Ferguson was drafted by the Thunder with the 21st overall pick in the 2017 draft. After a brief spell with the Oklahoma City Blue in the G-League, he forced his way into OKC head coach Billy Donovan’s rotation.

In 61 games with the Thunder last season, Ferguson averaged 3.1 points, 0.7 three-pointers, 0.8 rebounds, and 0.4 steals in 12.5 minutes off the bench.

Entering his sophomore campaign, Ferguson is looking to make a bigger contribution to his team. He will need to work doubly hard though, as the arrival of the likes of Dennis Schroder and Timothe Luwawu have made the Thunder backcourt even more crowded.
