The OKC Thunder have one of the best young cores in the entire NBA, which makes them must-see TV for any diehard NBA fan. After a surprise 40-win season, a 16-win increase from a year ago, many expect another leap from the OKC Thunder.
With Shai Gilgeous-Alexander proving to be a blue-chip prospect, Josh Giddey’s impressive FIBA run propelling him into year three, Jalen Williams trying to duplicate his jaw-dropping rookie season, and two top-ten picks being added to the fold.
That includes the highest pick of this rebuild, Chet Holmgren, returning to the floor for his NBA debut, and fascinating Kentucky guard Cason Wallace, with defensive chops that will make it hard for Mark Daigneault to turn away for very long. On top of those two rookies, the Thunder added a 29-year-old rookie season, finally swaying Vasilije Micic to make the NBA leap after a few flirty summers.
