Dallas Mavericks: 2017 NBA Mock Draft 3.0
The Thunder need more shooting around Russell Westbrook and Terrance Ferguson could give them just that.
If he stayed on course to play at Arizona, Ferguson could be a higher pick, but instead he went to play professionally in Australia where he underperformed. He is athletic, but a streaky shooter who could find solid rotation minutes off the bench in OKC.
For the worst team in the league, you go with the best player available with the most upside going forward.
In this case, I have them taking Justin Patton out of Creighton. The seven footer with a 7’3″ wingspan is intriguing on both sides of the ball as he looks like a gazelle on the court. He will take time to develop, but Brooklyn definitely has the time.
Brook Lopez is still the man, but Patton could develop nicely behind him.
