Thunder getting Griffin is very unlikely >>> The Oklahoman

After Griffin, there are slim pickins in this year’s draft, which explains why so much borderline talent left college early.

If this year’s crop truly is as weak as many claim, why not trade down and take a chance on similar talent that’ll be available later in the draft while collecting future picks in more talented draft pools?

If this year's crop is so weak, why would other teams want to move up? The logic works both ways.
Two or three weeks ago, the DOK said the Thunder HAD to do everything they could to get Blake. Now, they say there is little or no chance for them to get him. They need to make up their mind.
