NBA Mock Draft: Thunder Add Top Guard in Class

In a class that's forward heavy, the Thunder could land the top guard in the group.

The Oklahoma City Thunder are near the bottom of the Western Conference standings as they navigate the second season of their rebuild. As such, they’ve got a great chance at landing one of the top players in the upcoming rookie class.

With as many picks as Oklahoma City has, the future is bright. It comes down to nailing those draft picks over the next few drafts, especially with little room for error being in a small market. Adding a cornerstone piece in the 2022 NBA Draft will be another step in the right direction.

Krysten Peek of Yahoo Sports recently released a mock draft for the 2022 class. This gives insight into where some of the top players in the upcoming rookie class could land.

Although the draft lottery will ultimately decide the final order of selection for the upcoming draft, the Thunder currently have the fourth-worst record in the NBA. Based off of Peek's mock draft, that would have them selecting the top guard in the class.

Although guard isn't necessarily the position the Thunder need at this point, Ivey is a player that has the talent to expedite the rebuild in OKC.
