Happy Saturday. Thank you for your support of Daily Thunder. Onward.
The present piece in the James Harden trade was Kevin Martin. Clearly a gifted, efficient scorer that can fill it up with 30 points in a half. (Here’s a terrific breakdown from ESPN.com’s David Thorpe on Martin, a player he knows very well.) Not many are talking about the other piece in the deal though, 12th overall pick Jeremy Lamb. He’s unlikely to see a lot of immediate playing time with the Thunder, but he’s a talented young player that has a whole lot of offensive skill and a pretty tall ceiling. He could be a terrific young player, especially in the Thunder system that seems to develop players extremely well. So check out Draft Express’s breakdown video of him to get a little better feel on what he’s all about.
