During a live session, The Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor revealed some intel he’s heard regarding the Oklahoma City Thunder and who they might pick at No. 2 in the 2022 NBA draft.

O’Connor said that Duke forward Paolo Banchero is definitely in play for the Thunder at No. 2 but also notes that the information might be a smokescreen by either the Thunder or Houston Rockets.

“I had a source tell me yesterday that OKC is definitely a contender to take Banchero at 2. But how much is that OKC putting it out there knowing Houston’s desire to take him?”

O’Connor also mentioned that the Rockets could try to move up to the No. 1 spot in a trade with the Orlando Magic that will likely involve the No. 3 pick.
