NBA Mock Draft: Thunder Grab Top Talent From Big 12 Conference

The 2021 NBA Draft is just hours away. By the end of tonight, 60 rookies will be drafted by their new teams, with even more being signed as undrafted free agents. 

In what will be a pivotal night for the Oklahoma City Thunder, their next franchise cornerstone could be joining the team. They have six picks in tonight's draft, with three in each round.

Two of these first rounders fall just outside of the lottery, where OKC will look to find value.

Jonathan Wasserman of Bleacher Report recently updated his NBA mock draft, which had the Thunder taking two of the best prospects out of the Big 12 Conference.

Let's take a look at how Wasserman thinks the first round outside of the lottery could unfold.
