Chad Ford of ESPN.com reported Monday night the Thunder has been “proactive” in trying to get the No. 1 pick in Thursday night's NBA Draft.

“Despite numerous reports to the contrary, multiple sources say the Cleveland Cavaliers have yet to make a decision concerning who they'll take with the No. 1 pick,” Ford wrote. “The Cavs continue to mull their options at No. 1. They are engaged in trade talks with a number of teams. Sources say the Thunder, Timberwolves and Blazers have been the most proactive in trying to get the No. 1 pick — but so far neither team has persuaded the Cavs to move out of the top pick.

“The Cavs have narrowed down their list of prospects, according to sources, and it looks like it may ultimately come down to a battle between Kentucky's Noel and Maryland's Alex Len. I'm still persuaded, though not convinced, that it will be Noel.”

The Thunder currently owns the No. 12, No. 29 and No. 32 picks in the draft.
