Thunder like talent, potential of 4 draft picks



Even Abrines (6-foot-6) brings plenty of height to the team for a guard.

“Yeah, pretty much, we look at those things, those attributes,” Weaver said. “These guys lined up with that, and we were excited to have a chance at these guys.

“... Size for the position, that’s the way we’ve been able to build a team. Quite frankly, that’s the way we’re going to be able to sustain it, so we want to continue to layer players that way.”

Roberson appears to be the most prepared for the NBA, having played three seasons with the Buffaloes and leading the team in rebounding, blocked shots and steals in each. Adams and Jerrett, meanwhile, each have only one collegiate season of experience.

Adams said during the draft that he was comfortable spending time with Oklahoma City’s developmental team in Tulsa, if needed.
