Oklahoma City's first NBA Draft is just three days away, and we have your guide to Thursday night's action. We're giving you the three best players at selected skills as they pertain to the Thunder's needs as well as the biggest values, sleepers, question marks, teams to watch and a projection of who could end up where when all the first-round picks are in.
Three best playmakers
Ricky Rubio, 6-4, 180, PG, Spain
Draws comparisons to Pete Maravich for his flashy passes.
Ty Lawson, 6-0, 197, Jr., PG, North Carolina
Speed and quickness allows him to get wherever he wants on the court. Vision and unselfishness allows him to deliver the ball to his teammates once he's there.
Darren Collison, 6-1, 165, Sr., PG, UCLA
Has the unfortunate stigma of being a senior. But he knows how to run a team and run it well.
Three best rebounders
DeJuan Blair, 6-6, 277, Soph., PF, Pittsburgh
Was at his best against college basketball's best — 22 boards against Notre Dame's Luke Harangoday, 23 against UConn's Hasheem Thabeet.
Blake Griffin, 6-10, 248, Soph., PF, Oklahoma
Led the nation with a 14.3-rebounding average.
Hasheem Thabeet, 7-2, 267, Jr., C, Connecticut
Size gives him an instant advantage.
Three best shooters
Stephen Curry, 6-3, 181, Jr., PG/SG, Davidson
Puts it in from anywhere on the floor and off the dribble as well as with his feet set.
Jodie Meeks, 6-4, 208, Jr., SG, Kentucky
Slightly undersized as a shooting guard at the next level, but if he gets a good look it's going down.
Jack McClinton, 6-0, 185, Sr., PG/SG, Miami
