Hasheem Thabeet Could Sign With Thunder, According To Report

The Oklahoma City Thunder have had tremendous good fortune in the NBA Draft in recent years, getting Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, and James Harden from top-five picks and landing Perry Jones after the Baylor forward fell like a rock in Thursday's iteration. But the team is reportedly interested in one of the biggest draft busts in recent memory: SI.com's Sam Amick reports that Oklahoma City is Hasheem Thabeet's most likely landing spot.

Amick says Oklahoma City is the "most likely landing spot" for Thabeet, who was selected by the Grizzlies with the No. 2 pick of the 2009 NBA Draft and has already played for three teams, bouncing from Memphis to Houston and Portland.

Thabeet's skill as a shot-blocker at UConn has not translated to the NBA, and his undercooked offensive game has made him a massive project at best, with his limitations so severe that he's yet to play 900 minutes in an NBA season. But at 7'3", Thabeet provides size unmatched on the free agent market -- and the Thunder could use some underneath.
