Thunder Attempt To Trade Up In Draft
The Oklahoma City Thunder have been active in trade conversations on moving up in the draft with Cade Cunningham and Evan Mobley rumored to be the prospects they’re most interested in selecting.
The Thunder own picks No. 6, 16 and 18 in the first round this year in addition to more future draft picks than any other team in the NBA. Oklahoma City theoretically has enough assets to move up but the question is whether they will find the cost too exorbitant.
If the Thunder stay at No. 6, they are connected to James Boutknight. Oklahoma City had interest in Bouknight dating back to last year’s draft when he decided to remain at UConn.
