Oklahoma City coach Mark Daigneault has also declined to discuss the issue.

“I’m just not going to comment on anything as it relates to Josh off the court,” Daigneault told reporters before Tuesday’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Giddey played 28 minutes and scored 10 points in the loss to the Wolves … and fans at the Target Center showed their disproval by booing him relentlessly throughout the contest.

Giddey was the sixth overall pick in the 2021 draft. He is averaging 12.0 points, 5.8 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game in his third NBA  season. He has been a feature player for Oklahoma City, who have won 11 of their first 17 games and are tied for third place in the Western Conference.
