The Oklahoma City Thunder are reportedly involved in yet another trade that will net them more draft picks. As if they didn't have enough of them.

OKC is set to acquire forward Al Horford, among other assets, from the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for recently-acquired guard Danny Green.

The deal was first reported by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

According to the ESPN report, the Thunder are also receiving the rights to the Sixers' lightly-protected 2025 first round pick, the No. 34 overall pick in Wednesday night's NBA Draft and the rights to 26-year-old Serbian point guard Vasilije Micic.

Philadelphia will also receive seldom-used guard/forward Terrance Ferguson from Oklahoma City.

The Thunder now have rights to the 25th, 28th and 34th overall picks in tonight's NBA Draft.

Horford, 34, is an five-time NBA All-Star who signed a four-year, $109 million contract with Philadelphia in 2019. He only made it one year into his contract with the Sixers.

Horford averaged 11.9 points and 6.8 rebounds during the 2019-20 season.

In addition to his five All-Star game appearances, Horford won back-to-back NCAA championships with former Thunder head coach Billy Donovan when both were at the University of Florida in 2006 and 2007.
