2012 NBA Draft Order: Hornets, Bobcats Lead The First Round, Thunder Select No. 28

The 2012 NBA Draft is finally upon us and the Oklahoma City Thunder are going to have to wait for some time if they are willing to rest on their laurels and take the draft as it comes to them. Then again, anything can happen for Sam Presti in the draft so don’t be surprised if the team makes a move at one point either up or down in the draft order.

They currently hold the No. 28 choice in the draft, so many players will come off the board between now and then. However, the team is already loaded and whoever they add will have to be okay with a few minutes as part of a deep rotation on a loaded roster.
