OKC rumor round up:
Portland wants Lu Dort + #12 for #7.
Portland driving trade talks, not OKC.
Chet Holmgren wants to go to OKC.
Chet may be hiding medicals so he can go to a preferred team.
Paolo could be in the mix for OKC.
Knicks, Wizards & 27 other teams want SGA lol. – 7:00 PM
Alex Kennedy @AlexKennedyNBA
“I also heard Chet Holmgren has not provided his medical information to teams (at least most of them), and did not do the NBA’s heart screening. That could suggest that his agents are trying to manipulate the draft and direct him to a specific spot.”…2:06 PM
Adam Wexler @AdamJWexler
Jabari Smith cites his ability to affect both sides of the ball, knock down shots & to affect winning as to why he feels like he should be the no. 1 pick. Also said Paolo Banchero & Chet Holmgren are great, likes how unselfish they are w/ their contributions to their teams. – 1:39 PM
David Hardisty @clutchfans
While Jabari Smith believes he’s the #1 pick, he has high praise for both Chet Holmgren and Paolo Banchero. He feels they both have bright futures in the league. PM

Tim MacMahon @espn_macmahon
Rockets were looking to move Christian Wood to clear playing time for Alperen Sengun and likely the No. 3 overall pick, whether that’s Paolo Banchero or Chet Holmgren. They pounced on chance to acquire a first-round pick (and no long-term salary) in the process. – 9:29 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
The Media Guide quotable for Chet Holmgren is from Paolo Banchero “He’s a game changer on defense. I had a couple of layups that against anyone else, I would score or it’d be a dunk, but because Chet was down there, I wasn’t able to finish.” – 2:20 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
If Chet Holmgren goes in the top three, he will be Gonzaga’s highest draft pick since Adam Morrison (3rd, 2006). – 2:11 PM

More on this storyline

When you talk to NBA teams, what do you tell them about yourself? Wendell Moore: The main thing is that I’m a good guy to have in the locker room. You’re not going to have any problems with me or anything like that. When it comes to playing on the court, I’m going to do everything I can to win. Those are the two biggest things. My versatility on both ends is my most elite NBA skill. I can guard one through four at a high level on defense. I can take the best player on the opposing team. Offensively, I can play one through four. You see those point forwards in today’s NBA. I can make open shots. I can be a playmaker for my team and score for myself. I can do a little bit of everything. That’s going to allow me to play early at the next level. -via For The Win / June 17, 2022
The story about you is how much you improved your game. What went into that? Wendell Moore: The main thing for me is my work ethic. Along with the work ethic came the confidence and the trust in myself after putting all that work in. It came together this year, and my confidence took a huge leap. Before the season, my work was nonstop. As soon as the season ended for my sophomore year, I was in the gym within two days. I changed my body. I got leaner and slimmer. I got more athletic. I played a lot of pickup games and worked on live game reps. It’s fun working out by yourself, but you never know if it works until you try it against people in live action. I’m still working every day. I’m getting better every day. My confidence is back to where I think I’m a really good player. -via For The Win / June 17, 2022
What is the scouting report on your former teammate Paolo Banchero? Wendell Moore: Playing with him makes life so much easier. He attracts so much attention from the other team. He’s not looking to force anything. He’s always looking to make the right play for himself or for someone else. He’s always going to do the right thing. A lot of teams tried to pick on him defensively, but he definitely held his ground in his one-on-one matchups. He always takes it personally, and he tries to dominate. He did everything he could to win because that’s what he cares about most. He has so much talent. I think he should be the No. 1 overall pick. -via For The Win / June 17, 2022
