The 2022 NBA draft is a day away, which means that the final round of mock drafts has hit the internet. The Oklahoma City Thunder will have three picks all in the top-34 to choose from with No. 2, No. 12 and No. 34.

Despite some recent uncertainty, the heavy favorite to go No. 2 to the Thunder continues to be Gonzaga forward Chet Holmgren. While things can still technically, historically speaking, it’s just a courtesy call at this point and the Thunder will add Holmgren to the young core of Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Josh Giddey on Thursday.

Let’s see what the final versions of mock drafts have the Thunder taking with the franchise’s three picks as the draft season is almost over.
