2010 NBA Draft, 18th Pick: Thunder Select Eric Bledsoe, Will Trade Him To Clippers

There has been a trade. After the Thunder selected Kentucky's Eric Bledsoe 18th overall (that's the fourth Wildcat to come off the board, for those of you keeping score at home), they will reportedly trade him to the Clippers for a future first round pick, according to Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Bledsoe would have been an odd fit in Oklahoma City given that they already have Russell Westbrook, but on the Clippers, Bledsoe will have a chance to come along slowly behind Baron Davis (assuming they don't move the conditioning-challenged former UCLA product). Bledsoe has an NBA-ready body and a solid stroke from three-point range, although he struggled with turnovers as a freshman. If Bledsoe can figure out how to run a team, he could be an absolute steal at this point in the first round.
