The Oklahoma City Thunder added another first-round pick to their treasure trove of assets on Friday in a deal with the Boston Celtics in which they acquired Kemba Walker, the No. 16 overall pick in next month’s draft and a 2025 second-round pick for Al Horford, Moses Brown and a 2023 second-round pick. Round 1 – Pick 2 Jalen Suggs PG Gonzaga Fr 6’4″ / 205 lbs Projected Team Houston PROSPECT RNK 2nd POSITION RNK 2nd PPG 14.4 RPG 5.3 APG 4.5 3P% 33.7% Houston is in full rebuild mode after dealing James Harden and recording the worst record in the NBA. Jalen Suggs is a building block type player who with his passing vision, competitive drive and smarts from the point guard position projects as a starter at the position. Round 1 – Pick 22 Moses Moody SG Arkansas Fr 6’6″ / 205 lbs Projected Team L.A. Lakers PROSPECT RNK 15th POSITION RNK 5th PPG 16.8 RPG 5.8 APG 1.6 3P% 35.8% Moses Moody is a potential lottery pick but his lack of playmaking and separation skills are concerning enough to potentially drop him into this range. Round 1 – Pick 26 Ayo Dosunmu SG Illinois Jr 6’5″ / 200 lbs Projected Team Denver PROSPECT RNK 26th POSITION RNK 8th PPG 20.1 RPG 6.3 APG 5.3 3P% 38.6% One of the most improved upperclassmen prospects in the class, Ayo Dosunmu took his 3-point percentage from 29.6% to 38.6% while serving as the top option on a team that earned a No. 1 seed.
