The Oklahoma City Thunder trade rumors just keep coming in.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports is now reporting that the Thunder are “pushing hard” to acquire the No. 2 overall pick so that they can draft Victor Oladipo from Indiana.

 

This would be amazing if it could happen. I’m really high on Oladipo and am beginning to think that he could end up being one of the best players from this draft. He looks like as sure of a thing as ever and was described by Chad Ford as the one player he expects more than anyone to reach his ceiling, whatever that may be.

We know the Magic are trying to trade out of the No. 2 pick and their GM, Rob Hennigan, came from Oklahoma City.

The best the Thunder can offer is a combination of Reggie Jackson, Jeremy Lamb, Perry Jones and the 12th, 29th and 32nd draft picks. They also have a future Dallas first round pick at their disposal.

There were reports earlier this week too that the Thunder wanted to involve Kendrick Perkins in a trade to move into the top five but it is really unlikely Orlando would want anything to do with Perk.

Oladipo is the one player I would really want the Thunder to sell out for. Giving up Lamb and Jones for Len doesn’t seem smart but I think Oladipo would fit in fantastically in OKC.
