Recap: OKC Blue 2022 G League Draft picks

The 2022 G League draft was held on Saturday. Unlike its NBA counterpart, the G League holds three rounds of players to be drafted.

The G League is made up of 30 teams — 28 NBA team affiliates, the G League Ignite and the Mexico City Capitanes.

The OKC Blue — the G League affiliate of the Oklahoma City Thunder — selected five players with their five draft picks. The Blue had two first-round picks, two second-round picks and one third-round pick.

The Blue was able to add two second-round picks after completing a trade on Friday with the Iowa Wolves — the Minnesota Timberwolves’ G League affiliate.

Let’s take a look at the five players the Blue selected as they prepare to start their 2022-23 regular season in November.
