The Thunder sits 33-22 at the all-star break, the sixth seed in the Western Conference and tied for the 11th-best record in the NBA.
We don’t focus much on that latter standing. Maybe we should.
As part of the Jerami Grant trade with Philadelphia in November 2016, the 76ers get the Thunder’s first-round draft pick in 2020. But that pick is top-20 protected.
Which means if the Thunder finishes with one of the league’s 10-best records, the 76ers get the OKC draft pick. If the Thunder finishes outside the top 10, it keeps the pick.
