Biggest Questions

  • How will the team prioritize developing the young guys versus increasing trade value for the veterans? It’s extremely important to give the young players on the Thunder as much playing time as possible to improve. However, to pile up more draft assets, Oklahoma City will likely want to showcase guys like Al Horford, Darius Miller, and Trevor Ariza as much as possible to potentially flip them.
  • Where does Aleksej Pokusevski fit? Although he is a 7-footer, he’s gotten most of his preseason reps at one of the forward spots. He’s too skinny as of now to play inside at center, but possesses the skills to handle the ball and play on the wing.
