If the Oklahoma City Thunder are to obtain the first overall pick in the 2023 NBA draft to acquire Victor Wembanyama, the strength of schedule will play a huge role in that.

According to league analyst Ed Kupfer’s model, the Thunder have the hardest schedule in the NBA for the 2022-23 season. The model takes into account opponent strength for every team besides the Brooklyn Nets, days rest for the team and opponent and if it’s a home or away game.

The model concludes that the Thunder — by a significant margin — have the strongest schedule in the league.

Fellow draft lottery competitors in the San Antonio Spurs, Houston Rockets and Indiana Pacers help make up the top-four for the hardest schedules in the league.
