The Thunder has a lot of talent, and are a really good team that possesses few team needs. They have a strong core in uber athletic, scoring point guard Russell Westbrook, one of the best players in today’s game in superstar forward Kevin Durant, and a super shot blocker in Serge Ibaka. Kendrick Perkins is another big man who can rebound and lock down the paint defensively, while Sefolosha is an athletic shooting guard who can shoot threes and is a very good defensive specialist.
Gobert's stock has strangely been slipping, and the Spurs would be the benefactors in this mock draft if he slides all the way down to 28. The 7-2 center is a very efficient scorer inside the paint, and also possesses strong rebounding and defensive skills. He possesses very good shot blocking skills, and can rack up steals for his team. In addition, he excels as a scorer in transition, and can score on second chance points. He'll need to expand his offensive game, and will need to improve his ball handling skills, but Gobert would be a solid pick who would help shore up the paint.
Thank you for reading this, and this is the final mock draft that we will post prior to the date of the 2013 NBA Draft.
