The 2020 NBA Draft is surprisingly right around the corner, so let’s take a look at the first NBA Mock Draft of the year! Who lands with the OKC Thunder?

The NBA Draft is right around the corner, which is amazing to think about as we hurl towards the All-Star Break and NBA Trade deadline at warp speed. So what better time than now, around the halfway point of draftable prospects respective seasons, to unleash our first NBA Mock Draft on Thunderous Intentions. I released my first big board filled with the top 60 prospects entering the college basketball season, and a lot has changed since then.

The first thing to know about this NBA Mock Draft is that the order of the draft will be decided by a single sim on Tankathon’s random Lottery generator. Tankathon already puts them in the correct order heading into the sim in terms of percentages, and it seems like the best way to replicate what could happen on NBA Draft lottery night.

The second thing to note about this NBA Mock Draft is due to the fact it is so early in the NBA Draft process, teams have not been linked to prospects just yet, so this is not a prediction of what teams will actually do come draft night, that will come later on in the process, but rather a Mock Draft based on fit and logic in my opinion.

So sit back, relax, grab your drinks, your snacks, and possibly pitchforks and let’s get started. The OKC Thunder are going to have a few big decisions to make ahead of the NBA Draft, who should they target? Who do they end up getting?

First up on the clock in the first Mock NBA Draft of 2020 on Thunderous Intentions…Wait, should we start from pick 30, or pick 1? You know what? Let’s start with pick one, here we go.
