9. Oklahoma City Thunder – Corey Kispert, F, Gonzaga

What can you say about the Oklahoma City Thunder? This is a team that could use help all over the floor. This is a team that will likely take the best player available and the way the board has fallen, that happens to be Corey Kispert. Though, he might not be a popular pick for where the franchise is in their rebuild.

Kispert is a four-year college player and will likely be translated to the NBA as more of a shooter than anything else. During his senior and breakout season at Gonzaga, Kispert averaged 19 points and five rebounds on 54 percent shooting from the field and 44 percent shooting from 3-point range.

Kispert might be the best overall shooter in this draft class and would help any team that takes a shot on him, but I would expect many to believe that he’d be better on a team that is more ready to compete.
