    Thunder fans are pissed lol.

    That team is a mess, it's just a trade factory, may as well be a gleague team at this point.

    They never think about fit, only acquire players only to trade them later, and seemingly value draft picks over everything. I hate how people think Presti is this A tier GM when he just lucked into having a top 3 pick in the right three drafts and they still bungled having 3 MVP talent players on their team.

    You're joking but that's the straight truth.

    Bench is going to be strong now.

    Great value pick.

    Do you think we will stash Garuba for a year or buy him out and bring him over this year?

    We can't fully buy him out. The Rockets can only contribute 750K of the 3.5 million buyout. Garuba has to pay the rest.

    Sengun could work out to be a similar type of player - let's hope so!

    Cant believe Presti did this trade. But maybe they happy with Giddey and still see lots of talent down the line. It kinda makes sense from asset collection standpoint I guess they have no plans to be good anytime soon.

    Great trade for Rox those picks are wack and have a chance to be 2nd rounders. Sengun is ok for me but at 16 I mean you gotta take the 18 yr old Turkish MVP right? Crazy.

    Might be the unpopular pick around here, but I wish we had picked up Trey Murphy instead of Sengun..not sure Sengun is going to translate to NBA success.

    Trey Murphy is going to be solid.

    We're having a great draft so far, hopefully it keeps going!
