Buddy Buckets has as unique a story in his path to the NBA as any professional basketball player. He was born in Freeport, Bahamas and grew up in a small village near Nassau in what he described as a "rough neighborhood". Hield found his solace on the basketball court where he would often use a milk crate or bike tire as a hoop. Buddy was put on the map after a scout was impressed by his buoyant demeanor and determined work ethic. Hield played college ball at Oklahoma for four seasons, coming off the bench initially and eventually scoring 25 points per game in his senior season with a wild 45.7% 3-point shooting rate on 8.7 attempts per game - his stats were good enough to win him the John Wooden award that season. Hield was selected with the sixth overall pick in the 2016 NBA draft by the New Orleans Pelicans where he played 57 games before being traded to the Sacramento Kings as part of a package that brought Demarcus Cousins to New Orleans. He's since spent time in the starting lineup and coming off the bench, offering high-end offensive production in both roles. Hield is a spark-plug offensive player and will carve out a long NBA career on the back of his athleticism and 3-point sniping.
