The 2022 NBA draft creeps closer as it is less than three weeks away on June 23. This means that mock draft season is now more active than ever during this time of the year. Oklahoma City Thunder fans might have more than average invested interest into who draft experts have mocked to the team with its four top-34 picks due to their knowledge and intel on draft prospects.

Right now, it looks like Gonzaga forward Chet Holmgren will soon be calling Oklahoma City his home as it is a near consensus across the board that he will be the selection at No. 2.

Let’s take a look at some of the more noteworthy mock drafts and who they have the Thunder taking at second, 12th, 30th and 34th overall.
