After swapping its 29th pick with the Golden State Warriors for the 26th pick, the Thunder used its new position to draft Colorado's Andre Roberson. 

Roberson averaged 10.9 points and 11.2 rebounds per game as a junior last season.  He may only measure 6-foot-7 but posesses a 6-foot-11 wingspan and a 37-inch verticle leap.  His athleticism and rebounding prowess could pay dividends down the road for Oklahoma City.
