Oklahoma City: NBA Draft Grade A-
(28) Perry Jones III
The Thunder only had one draft pick but they could have gotten the steal of the draft. With one of the last picks of the 1st round the Thunder took Perry Jones III from Baylor. If Jones had declared after his freshman season he would have been a top 5 pick. A medical report caused him to slip all the way to Thunder. I am sure the Thunder were shocked that he was still there. They got a top 5 talent now the question is can Jones put it all together?
Offseason/ Free Agents and Trades: Grade D
- The NBA finals losers have most of their roster back for next season. The only moves they have made in the off season so far is singing former number 2 pick overall Hasheem Thabeet and signing Daniel Orton.
- The Thunder lost Royal Ivey and Nazr Mohammed in free agency

He plays basketball the way I...
