OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma City Thunder general manager Sam Presti says first-round picks Mitch McGary and Josh Huestis should fit right into the team's culture.

Both players were introduced to fans and media Friday. Presti said he chose them because they are good, selfless teammates.

McGary only played in eight games for Michigan last season before having back surgery. Yet he made an impression on Presti with the way he continued to interact with his teammates from the bench.

Huestis was good enough to be a first-round pick, despite just being fourth on Stanford's team in scoring. He embraced his role and was chosen to the Pac 12 defensive team in his junior and senior years.

Semaj Christon, a guard from Xavier who was added in a draft-night deal with Charlotte in exchange for cash, did not attend.
