The Sacramento Kings guard played in a pick up basketball game in Oklahoma City on June 11 in a league called the Skinz League, where fellow OU alumni Trae Young played a few nights before.
Hield is going into his sixth season in the NBA, and averaged 19.8 points per game in the 2019-20 season before the regular season was postponed in March amid the coronavirus pandemic. He currently holds a career average of 15.9 points a game.
The NBA is set to return on July 30.
