OKC Thunder Draft: Who Can Play the Two-Guard?

1 of 5

Apr 6, 2015; Indianapolis, IN, USA; Duke Blue Devils forward Justise Winslow (12) drives to the basket against Wisconsin Badgers forward Duje Dukan (13) and forward Nigel Hayes (10) during the second halfin the 2015 NCAA Men

Following the departure of James Harden in the 2012 offseason, Thunder critics around the league have complained of a lack of a consistent offensive and defensive presence at the shooting guard position (yes, Harden did play a little defense on the Thunder).
