Breakdown of All The OKC 1st Round Draft Picks By Year and Protections

The Oklahoma City Thunder are in complete rebuild mode after trading Russell Westbrook to the Houston Rockets. In the trade they received more first round picks which bring the total to 8 additional first round picks. The picks are as follows

  • 2020 Denver first rd (top 10 protected)
  • 2021 Miami first rd (swap with Houston 5-30)
  • 2022 Clippers first rd
  • 2023 Miami first rd (lottery protected)
  • 2024 Clippers first rd
  • 2024 Rockets first rd (top 4 protected)
  • 2026 Clippers first rd
  • 2026 Rockets first rd (top 4 protected)
  • Pick swaps with the Rockets in 2021 and Clippers in 2023 and swap with Clippers or Rockets in 2025

Thunder will have to hit on at least one those picks and will have to hope the teams they’re getting them from aren’t that good so they can be decent picks. Won’t mean much if they’re drafting in the mid to late first round.
