#21. Oklahoma City Thunder – Cam Johnson

While this might be seen as something of a reach at #21 overall in the 2019 NBA Draft, the Oklahoma City Thunder were exposed on the offensive end due to a supreme lack of shooting in the team’s first-round playoff series against the Portland Trail Blazers, which they lost four games to one.

In our first full mock draft, we had the Thunder taking Ty Jerome out of Virginia, but in this one, the Thunder opt for a little more size and length with their pick – something that Sam Presti has valued throughout his tenure in OKC – by taking Cameron Johnson out of UNC 21st overall.

Though Johnson will be old for a rookie (23 on draft day), the Thunder need a player who can “win now,” due to the team’s accelerated timeline surrounding Paul George and Russell Westbrook (and to a far lesser extent, former Atlanta Hawks point guard Dennis Schroder).

Johnson would be able to bring his versatile jump shot to the Thunder and immediately provide perimeter spacing that the team desperately needs – as George was really the only consistent three-point shooter the team had last season.

Johnson’s sterling statistical profile per KenPom featured a 129 offensive rating (15th in the NCAA), a 45.7 clip from three-point territory (31st in the NCAA), a 64.8 true shooting percentage (35th in the NCAA) and a 62.1 effective field goal percentage (52nd in the NCAA).
