Thunder News: Who Experts Expect Team to Select With No. 2 Pick

The Oklahoma City Thunder could come away from the 2022 NBA draft with the best prospect in the class despite owning the No. 2 overall pick.

The Thunder jumped over the Houston Rockets and Detroit Pistons in Tuesday's draft lottery to be positioned behind the Orlando Magic.

Most experts believe the Magic are set on Jabari Smith or Paolo Banchero at No. 1, which leaves the Thunder an opportunity to land Gonzaga big man Chet Holmgren.

Holmgren is far from the finished product, but he would fit in perfectly in Oklahoma City as a complement to 2021 first-round pick Josh Giddey.
