After their season ended prematurely a week ago, preparations for next season are finally underway.

The NBA held its Draft Lottery Tuesday night and the Thunder now know exactly where they will be picking.

Oklahoma City owned the Toronto Raptors' pick, acquired via Houston in the James Harden trade.

The Thunder will have the No. 12 selection in June's NBA Draft, along with the 29th pick in the first round and the No. 4 pick of the second round via Charlotte.

Toronto (34-48) was slated for the No. 12 pick and given a 0.7 percent chance of getting the No. 1 pick.
