With the playoff results well settled, the Oklahoma City Thunder have to make a decision this Thursday about who can help the team most moving forward.
After consecutive top-five picks between 2007-09, the Thunder’s spot in the draft order has dropped dramatically over the past two seasons.
When they drafted 24th overall in 2010, much of the excitement about the pick was lost. However, the excitement being gone is actually a good thing, indicating this Thunder team is now showing how dominant they can be.
The Thunder may have fewer needs than any other team in the NBA, but room to improve is always there.
Oklahoma City’s biggest need lies in their bench scoring, which is something they will likely address Thursday night. Nevertheless, the Thunder might be smart in taking the best player available towards the end of the first round.
Here are 10 players Oklahoma City should target on Thursday night.
