    19-20 year olds tend to grow up occasionally. The pick was very low-risk for the Thunder and OKC will be a great place for someone, who is supposedly passive at times, to grow as a person and a player. He will be around a culture and players who are competitive and work very hard. If he sticks with them and he's talented enough, which it looks like he is, then I see no reason to believe he can't be a good player in the future.

    Agreed that kids will grow up. Whether this particular one will develop an entirely different mind set, learn to handle contact, find a nightly passion for the game that he didn't show in college, and not break down physically are things that only time will tell.
