NBA Draft 2011: Rumors Tie Reggie Jackson To Thunder

The Oklahoma City Thunder could be the mystery team to pick Boston College guard Reggie Jackson in the first round of the 2011 NBA Draft, reports SI.com's Sam Amick. Jackson mysteriously canceled a number of pre-draft workouts last week amid rumors he'd been promised a spot in the first round by a team picking there. But the identity of that team never came out, and some speculated the Miami Heat -- who have the first pick of the second round -- could have made the promise.

Amick reports that several NBA executives believe Jackson will be off of the board once the Thunder pick at No. 24. The Thunder have been involved in rumors about an attempt to unload back-up point guard Eric Maynor for a second first-round pick, potentially in the lottery. Amick reports that the idea would be to replace Maynor with a cheaper prospect in Jackson who will be on a rookie deal for longer, while picking up another asset.
