The 2022 NBA Draft took place just two days ago, with 58 players of the best players in the world hearing their name be called and their dreams coming true. With that in mind, many teams like the Oklahoma City Thunder are projected to be a team in contention for the top pick in the 2023 NBA Draft to go along with their other three first rounders from this week's draft. The 2023 class is absolutely loaded with talent and will likely be one of the best we've seen in some time. While the 2023 NBA Draft won't take place for another year, the SI Thunder team put together a way too early mock draft. The projected 2023 draft order is based on 2022-23 Fanduel Odds with all ties being broken by 2021-22 NBA standings.
