Report: OKC Thunder scout Thompson twins, Nikola Druidic

It looks like the Oklahoma City Thunder are getting at it early to prepare for the 2023 NBA draft.

The Thunder — along with the Utah Jazz — sent a scout to Serbia to watch the Thompson twins — Amen and Ausar — and Nikola Druidic, per Yahoo Sports’ Krysteen Peek.

While it’s still extremely early in the draft process and 10 months remain, the Thompson twins are viewed as high-lottery picks. Druidic is viewed as a potential first-round pick.

The Thompson twins will forgo playing in college next season, instead electing to sign with Overtime Elite. Druidic will play overseas.

With Chet Holmgren out for the season, the Thunder will likely receive another lottery pick in the 2023 NBA draft.

It’s also noteworthy to point out that one of Ausar Thompson’s three likes on Twitter is about the Thunder going after him and him being the missing piece in the frontcourt.
