Oklahoma City Thunder

Oklahoma City Thunder: A complete guide to the franchise's future NBA Draft picks

The Oklahoma City Thunder have added yet another draft pick to their treasure chest.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Thunder have sent Al Horford, Moses Brown and a 2023 second-round pick to the Boston Celtics for Kemba Walker, the No. 16 overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft and a 2025 second-round pick in return.

For those keeping track at home, Oklahoma City now has 36 total draft picks over the next seven years: 18 first-round picks and 18 second-round picks.

Since the 2019 offseason, the Thunder have been in the business of acquiring as many future draft picks as possible, starting when they traded away two All-Stars in Paul George (LA Clippers) and Russell Westbrook (Houston Rockets). It sets them up for another strong rebuild, similar to the one they achieved in the late 2000s when they drafted Kevin Durant (2007), Westbrook (2008), Serge Ibaka (2008) and James Harden (2009) in successive years.

With that in mind, take a look at how Oklahoma City's future draft assets shake out over the next seven years.
