If OKC can't get the number 1 pick and take the hometown kid, Thabeet would be a GREAT "back-up plan" as alluded to above. He'd fill a big void at the Center position and give that squad something that not many teams have and that's a potentially dangerious inside out combo featuring a number of players, but of course, headlined by KD and Thabeet himself.
Westbrook, KD, Thabeet, Green -- that's a nasty core. They also have San Antonio's first round pick this year(early 20's) and that should pick up another nice piece in this deep draft class.
if they do get e first Pick they wouldnt go for Thabeet they would go for Griffen, who in my opinion will be the best player in the draft. WestBrook, KD, Griffe, Green- Now thats a nasty core and if North Carolina's forward Tyler Hansbergh doesnt get draffted by then and if OKC picks him up. WATCH OUT!!!
