The Oklahoma City Thunder has high aspirations for rookie shooting guard Jeremy Lamb. Lamb, a lottery selection in the 2012 NBA Draft and a key piece in the package they received in exchange for James Harden, has a tremendous amount of upside, but there currently isn’t much playing time available for him. So, the team sent him to the Tulsa 66ers, their D-League affiliate, to get some extensive in-game work in. “It means a lot,” Lamb said of his time in the D-League to HOOPSWORLD. “ I met some new guys, being able to play with them, work on the stuff that I’ve been working on in OKC, being able to play and get some minutes and do it on the court has been good. “When I first got down here it’s always tough to meet new people. Daniel [Orton] was here. I was able to talk to him about, he introduced me to people. Everyone was real welcoming. DeAndre Liggins, I could talk to him. Now the whole team is like a little family, having fun playing games, working hard together. It’s good having some people that you already know in a new environment with you.” HoopsWorld

Kupchak: On the surface, the Thunder had a team that was very successful as a group, as a unit. There's a piece of that group that's moving on, so you might take something from that. At the same time, I think by adding Kevin Martin they have a piece that they can use, that's going to get minutes, and he can certainly score. They picked up a lot of (draft picks), plus a kid in (Jeremy Lamb) we all liked in college. So you can argue that this year there may be a ding to their chemistry because they'd been together for three years, but Martin could fit right in and Lamb could have a (positive) impact. NBA.com

Jeremy Lin thought he was doing the right, veteran thing. He called Scott Machado to say goodbye and good luck. The only problem was that he called the wrong rookie. Machado had been nervously awaiting word on whether he had made the Rockets’ roster. As Lin wished him well, his heart skipped a few beats until he realized he did not need to worry. Lin had thought he called Jeremy Lamb, who had just been traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder. By Monday, Machado knew made the team when no one called. “I was like, ‘Hey, it’s Scott, it’s not Jeremy,’ ” Machado said of his conversation with Lin. “’Did you hear something about me?’ I was all nervous. He was like, “Oh, I apologize, I apologize.’ It all worked out.” Houston Chronicle

Will the Bucks use the No. 12 pick in Thursday's draft to get that young, athletic shooting guard to complement Ellis and point guard Brandon Jennings? It's certainly possible. The seriousness of the Bucks' search was revealed Tuesday as two of the elite shooting guard prospects visited the Cousins Center - Washington sophomore Terrence Ross and Connecticut sophomore Jeremy Lamb Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

If they keep the pick, they really need help at center, point guard and small forward. Although Rivers doesn't fill any of those positions, I'm told the Hornets have been enamored with him. Tyler Zeller, Jeremy Lamb and Moe Harkless are other possibilities here. ESPN.com

However, Lamb went into Phoenix this weekend and toughed out a workout on the bad ankle. A source in Phoenix told me the Suns were impressed with his toughness and willingness to fight through the workout. His performance there could keep him in the lottery. If Lamb is gone, Terrence Ross, Dion Waiters and Austin Rivers are all possibilities here. So is Arnett Moultrie. ESPN.com

Jeremy Lamd on UConn center Andre Drummond: "It depends on if he wants to work. He's a great athlete. He can jump. He can block shots. He can rebound. I always say, it's funny, we will have an early practice at like 8 AM, and everyone is trying to get warmed up and stuff. He'll just come out and do a windmill to warm up. His bounce is amazing. I believe he's going to work hard, develop post moves, I think he can be a great pro." Blazers Edge

If Jeremy Lamb doesn't go 8 to Toronto as some expect, there are rumors that he could really slide on draft night. Teams apparently are more than just a little bit worried about his shoulder, which David Aldridge first reported on. The injury that doctors have flagged is to his right shooting shoulder and there is concern that it could recur during his career. One team we spoke with said they felt he could slide right out of the lottery and into the teens. We consider Lamb to be the SG prospect with the most long term potential. But this shoulder injury combined with his ankle injury and inability to work out for teams before today (Portland) could cost him on draft night. NBADraft.net
