That's actually not bad.

I think I'm on board with Adams being my top priority now. Mainly because he's quick enough to switch to cover a guard bettere than the others and he's got great size (at 255 and only 19 years old) and length and his jump shot could actually be helpful.
Len and Gobert are my 2a and 2b because I think they don't have the athleticism and quickness that Adams has to help defensively. Gobert's length is obviously a huge asset but Len has 20 pounds on him and I think Len is the more skilled.
Zeller is my 3rd option because I think he'd be a great athletic stretch 4 who can defend stretch 4's. Ibaka would have to play center I. This instance. Zeller actually has a pretty decent post up game as well. Better than the top 3.

It's called being 19 years old. When I was in college they tested ours and I was like 4%. I'm nowhere close to that now.

We need a center!
It's nice to think about who we could end up at the bottom of the first round but if we have a center that we think is going to be a cornerstone for this franchise I'm not opposed to trading both our lower picks and the Dallas pick to move up to get him.

I mean in terms of style and development when drafted. Both are bulls that have a ton to learn. Obviously Kanter is a couple years ahead but that's probably the type of learning curve Adams would have.
Dieng at 229 is not good. Zeller is heavier than he is.
I don't think Gobert sees the court here next year so it won't matter. He's a redshirt guy almost for sure. A year of weights, gaining weight, learning the system and working with the staff and he'll be ready the next year.
One other thing I found interesting from today was in PJ3's 20 second interview the only thing he said about next year was coming back stronger which tells me his future is most likely in the post and defense is their focus (another reason why Olynyk won't be the pick).
I think the combine was a very big positive for the Thunder. Adams, Gobert and Zeller all solidified themselves as legitimate options at 12 and there is a definite possibility they all go before we pick. If they do jump up we've got our choice more than likely between KCP, Olynyk, Dieng and Schroeder. If any of Adams, Gobert or Zeller do get to us we've got a solid player with any of those as well. The only center at this point is Adams. Dieng, Olynyk, Gobert and Zeller would all be 4's at this point. ESPN compared Adams to Kanter and I think that's a pretty good comparison.
1 - Noel
2 - McLemore
3 - Porter
4 - Burke
6 - Odalipo
9 - KCP (min wants a shooter)
10 - Gobert
11 - Zeller
12 - OKC Adams

I've never been on.
How come the exit interviews were all so short?

Every team that's drafting before us that isn't looking center is one step closer to us getting who we want.
Minn looking for a shooting guard...
Detroit looking for perimeter help...
@Amnesty Perkins @Ibaka's Jumpshot Sef was actually not very good in the playoffs either.
