Sam Presti, Thunder confident Chet Holmgren is latest star draft pick

+

Thunder general manager Sam Presti has a stunningly successful history with high draft picks. Back when the Thunder were still the Seattle SuperSonics, Presti made Kevin Durant the No. 2 overall pick in 2007 and Russell Westbrook No. 4 overall in 2008. The team moved to Oklahoma City for the 2008-09 season before Presti selected James Harden third overall in 2009. The trio took the Thunder to the NBA Finals in 2012, and all three were on the NBA’s 75th Anniversary team listing the 75 greatest players in league history. Presti picked Gonzaga’s Chet Holmgren No. 2 overall Thursday. Holmgren knows all about the previous high picks, but he isn’t interested in comparisons. DAZN is the new home of NFL in Canada.
