Chet Holmgren, the rookie upstart for the Oklahoma City Thunder, turned heads Tuesday in Utah with his summer league debut.
The No. 2 pick overall had 23 points, seven rebounds, four assists, and six blocks in a 98-77 summer league win in Salt Lake City.
The show caught the attention of Kevin Durant, who tweeted his praises on Wednesday.

In addition to making Durant comparisons, Holmgren wore Durant’s signature Nike KD 15s during the win.
Holmgren and Oklahoma City are set to return to Earth for the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday (7 p.m. ET, ESPN2).
