The NBA lottery happened Tuesday night, and several teams were happy to see their ping-pong balls come up. The Cleveland Cavaliers scored the No. 1 pick, but rumors suggest it could be traded. That’s not something that is usually even discussed, since the top overall pick is almost always a game-changing player. But that may change this year.
What I really want to talk about is the Oklahoma City Thunder. They have to love where they landed in this draft, with Toronto’s first-round top-three protected pick they got in the James Harden trade. The Thunder have the 12the pick and every Oklahoma City fan knows what they need to do with that pick: get a big man to replace Kendrick Perkins.
