Round 1 12 (12) Oklahoma City Thunder Steven Adams C 7'0 255 Pittsburgh
Steven Adams

Mike Huguenin's Analysis: This is a boom-or-bust pick since it's based on potential, not production. Steven Adams was a highly touted recruit when he arrived at Pittsburgh last fall, but the New Zealand-born 7-footer reached double figures in scoring once in Big East play as a freshman and recorded double-digit rebounding games just five times all season. His size, speed and athleticism wowed NBA teams, but Oklahoma City is going to have to be patient and allow his skills to develop. Fortunately, the Thunder can afford to do so since they already have the roster of a title contender.

Note: from Raptors via Rockets
Round 1 26 (26) Oklahoma City Thunder Andre Roberson PF 6'7 206 Colorado
Andre Roberson

Mike Huguenin's Analysis: There wasn't much talk of Andre Roberson going in the first round, so it's a bit of a surprise to see Oklahoma City trade up three spots to nab the Colorado forward. What Roberson brings to the NBA is rebounding and defense. His offensive potential is limited, but the 6-foot-7 forward averaged 11 or more rebounds both of the past two seasons and added 2.2 steals and 1.4 blocks per game as a junior.

Note: from Warriors via T'wolves, Grizzlies and Rockets
Round 2 2 (32) Oklahoma City Thunder Alex Abrines SG 6'5 190 Spain

Mike Huguenin's Analysis: Oklahoma City's third and final pick of the night likely won't come stateside anytime soon. Alex Abrines, a talented but raw shooting guard, is expected to remain in his native Spain for the next couple years, saving the Thunder money and a roster spot.

Note: from Bobcats via Thunder, Celtics and Rockets
Round 2 10 (40) Oklahoma City Thunder Grant Jerrett PF 6'10 232 Arizona
Grant Jerrett

Mike Huguenin's Analysis: Grant Jerrett made a mistake leaving after a freshman season in which he averaged only 5.2 points and 3.6 rebounds, but at least the Arizona forward didn't go undrafted. To catch on with the Blazers, he'll need to develop other aspects of his game to go with a nice outside shot.

Note: from Trail Blazers for cash
