Thunder seek next piece for young core

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Oklahoma City Thunder have a new dilemma to tackle in this year's NBA draft.

After stockpiling some of the best young talent in the league on draft night the past three years, the vastly improved Thunder won't have the benefit of a lottery pick on Thursday night unless general manager Sam Presti does some last-minute wheeling and dealing.

It'll be the first time since Presti took over as GM three years ago that the franchise won't have a top five pick. The Thunder have the 21st, 26th, 32nd and 51st picks.
