Oklahoma City hopes to return to the top of the Western Conference, beginning with the NBA draft.
The Thunder have three of the first 32 picks in the draft Thursday night, beginning with the No. 12 selection. The pick came from Houston following last year's trade of James Harden to the Rockets.
Oklahoma City was ousted in the second round of the playoffs this year, struggling to find a reliable offensive threat to go along with star Kevin Durant after point guard Russell Westbrook injured his right knee.
The Thunder also have the 29th and 32nd picks as they look to potentially replace free agents Kevin Martin, Ronnie Brewer and Derek Fisher.
