Oklahoma City Thunder GM Sam Presti is on his “A” game in this middle of November as the team is now officially in a rebuild for the future.  The trade of Chris Paul to the Phoenix Suns and Dennis Schroder to the Los Angeles Lakers have given the Thunder a strong position to make good on excellence that could include an NBA championship in the next five years and beyond.  The fact that Presti  and OKC basically own the “futures” of the Houston Rockets and the Los Angeles Clippers give the team on Reno Street the strongest position of any franchise for the future in the Association. 

 

 

From the Oklahoman:
The Thunder owns 16 first-round draft picks through 2026, including two (No. 25 and No. 28) in Wednesday’s NBA draft.
