#12 Overall pick, Steven Adams (Oklahoma City Thunder)

Boy, OKC certainly knows how to draft, don’t they? They turned that Toronto pick from the James Harden trade into a 7’0” New Zealander just in time to fill a need. Kendrick Perkins is unlikely to retain his starting job if Adams continues to increase production with court time. In 30 minutes last night, he posted 17 points and 10 rebounds with 3 blocked shots against the stacked Pistons frontcourt.

Per game averages: 7.0 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 0.6 steals, 1.2 blocks
