The consensus at this moment is that the Oklahoma City Thunder are aggressively looking to make moves tonight at the NBA Draft.
There have been reports that the Thunder are trying to trade into the top five so that they can draft Alex Len, and now there is a report that the Thunder would be interested in trading the No. 12 pick in hopes for two future first round picks.
Oklahoma City continues to be aggressive. Trying to move up, down and/or out of draft. Asking for two future No. 1’s to move out of No. 12.

This idea may make as much sense as any for the Thunder. This draft is a very weak one and having a lottery pick tonight will be much less valuable than if the Thunder can have one, and possibly even two, next year in what is expected to be a very strong class.
Once again, though, it feels like the Thunder are setting their sights pretty high on what they are offering. Like I said, this is a weak draft and why is someone going to give two future first rounders for the 12th overall pick?
This is just a rumor and there of course will be more to it than what is in this tweet. As excited as Thunder fans are for the prospects of the Thunder making a move tonight and in this draft, the smarter thing may be to try and set yourself up to be in good position to get a lottery player next year.
