Draft Day Is Here: Who Will The Thunder Take?

Posted: Updated:

We're only hours away from the 2013 NBA Draft and rumors continue to circulate around seemingly every team in the lottery.

Not in years has there been so little consensus on any of the top 10 picks. Some mock drafts have Alex Len (Maryland) going first, but others have Nerlens Noel (Kentucky.)

Other projected top-10 picks such as Ben McLemore (Kansas), Victor Oladipo (Indiana), Otto Porter (Georgetown) and Anthony Bennett (UNLV) have been speculated as high as No. 2 or as low as No. 8.

On top of the rumors and confusion, the trade winds that continue to circulate. The Thunder has reportedly perused a trade to move into the top five in tonight's draft, with Len being the target, but so far no takers.  Even big-name stars such as Kevin Love, LaMarcus Aldridge, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce have been rumored in various trade scenarios.

As for who Oklahoma City will take, there's no question a big man is high on the priority list.  Len would be ideal, but Cody Zeller (Indiana), Steven Adams (Pittsburgh), Mason Plumlee (Duke), Kelly Olynyk (Gonzaga) and Gorgui Dieng (Louisville) are all options if the Thunder can't move into the top five. 

For a look into the strengths, weaknesses and how each player could help the Thunder, check out these draft profiles:

Alex Len, Victor Oladipo

Cody Zeller, Kelly Olynyk

Steven Adams, Rudy Gobert

Otto Porter, Anthony Bennett

Mason Plumlee, Gorgui Dieng
