What will Presti do if Rubio is still on board when the Thunder picks?

BY MIKE BALDWIN of Newsok.com

Nearly two dozen point guards, roughly one out of every three players selected, might be taken on June 25.

Even if the Thunder were to bypass Ricky Rubio with the No. 3 pick, would Oklahoma City general manager Sam Presti consider selecting a point guard with his No. 25 pick?

"They don’t really need a point guard, but this is an exceptionally deep draft at the point position,” said an Eastern Conference scout. "It’s the deepest I can remember at that position in a long time. There are 12 or 13 point guards that are getting first-round discussion.”

It’s no secret Presti would like to trade Earl Watson, a veteran who began the season as the Thunder’s starting point guard before becoming Russell Westbrook’s backup.
