The Thunder selected Andre Roberson with the No. 26 pick in the NBA draft on Thursday. Here's a look at Roberson and how he fits with Oklahoma City:

Bio: Colorado | Junior | Power Forward

Vitals: 6-7, 206 pounds

2012-13 Statistics: 10.9 points, 11.2 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 2.2 steals, 48 percent shooting in 31 games.

Team Fit: Roberson is a bit too small to be a traditional big and a bit too lacking as a shooter to be a traditional wing, but should be a nice experiment for the Thunder. He's likely a more natural big at the NBA level, if only because it makes better use of his two most convincing basketball skills at this point: rebounding and defensive flexibility. Size and a limited offensive game had Roberson projected as a second-rounder, but Oklahoma City has enough scoring to make up for Roberson's slim (though growing) scoring game while making effective use of his activity on the boards and instincts elsewhere on the floor.
