Rising Draft Prospect: Will Kira Lewis climb onto the Thunder’s draft board?

Measuring at 6’3, 167 pounds, Kira Lewis is a point guard out of the University of Alabama who can do it all on the offensive end.

At only 18 years of age, Lewis is the youngest sophomore in all of D-1 basketball, making what he’s doing all the more impressive. He’s a year younger than notable freshmen and presumed top-three pick Cole Anthony. He won’t be turning 19 until April.

Named to the Preseason All-SEC team entering his sophomore year, Lewis has only upped his draft stock throughout this season as he’s improved in nearly every statistical category since last year, per Basketball Reference:

ESPN currently has Lewis going 40th overall in their latest mock, but I see him maxing out in the lottery and possibly lasting all the way to the end of the first round, therefore making him a possibility for OKC’s own pick or their pick acquired from Denver.
