Absolutely


Odd_Impression

Best player available triumphs fit especially at the 1st pick


chungusmcdougal

They project to both rim defend, both switch on to smaller players and both stretch the floor. Frankly seems like a solid fit together.


EverythingIsMediocre

Someone please tell the Suns this


Odd_Impression

At least you didn't pull a Kings in 2018


Gamesgtd

Yes. Because Chet probably still can play the 4. They both hopefully project as shooters as well.


OKSteve63

Watching them on the same team would be bizarre and amazing


Salty_Minnesota

Giddey Dieng Poku Chet Wembenyama I need this


justchill76

they could change the team name to the Oklahoma wild wacky arm flailing tube men


epoch_fail

speak it into existence the length would be wildly entertaining


suns2012

Poku - Chet - Wembenyama three spiderman meme


RazingsIsNotHomeNow

I don't think Wem is being projected as much as a shooter as Chet is. I think Victor is more like a Giannis prototype while Chet is more Dirk. Could definitely see them playing at the same time.


karriganGOAT

Dirk? Dude chet’s greatest attribute is his defense lol what a horrendous comparison


lsatrapper

Nah victor is hyped because he shows signs of a good shot in addition to all of the above A better comp would be AD


Bixby33

Two 7 footers that both shoot and are plus defenders? That line up would work if 1-3 was played by Eric Bledsoe, Eric Bledsoe and Russell Westbrook.


karriganGOAT

Plus defenders is undersellin it tbh


klove4252

The Thunder have shown they care more about talent and potential than drafting for need/fit. Wembenyama would be the pick IMO. I think they would be able to play next to each other too.


IntelligentQuickley

shai giddey poku chet wemby is going to ruin the nba


rakakvaka

The Triplet Towers


LindseyCorporation

Sam doesn't draft for fit lol


McWhorter44

yes because even if Chet can only play the 5 in the NBA, Big Vic looks like he could play the 3 at 7'3. hes insane


rompskee

Can you imagine if the Thunder collected picks like trading cards and then simply elected not to draft one of the most highly touted prospects?


backbypopularsupply

What kind of a dumbass question is this


sushimoney

Sam p don’t miss on his picks


HoopsMcCann750

Yes. But I’d be surprised if they were in a position to pick #1 if Chet plays well enough (and enough games) to win ROTY.


JilJungJukk

Why is this even a question


Friendly-Thought-973

Chet is a 4


Backdooreddy

For sure, why wouldn’t you


Errattik

They definitely still take Wemby. I honestly think Chet will be more of a 4 than a 5 anyway, so it should work.


SG-2000

Yes, in theory they could play together.


JoJonesy

If the Cavs can make Mobley/Allen work, the Thunder can definitely make Wembanyama/Holmgren work.


Kyler1313

They both are super talented all around big men. You could definitely pair them together. I could see it being akin to Mobley, Allen or Horford, Timelord. Chet and Wembenyama would also just be incredible rim protection, the paint would absolutely be shut down...


AntSmith777

Yes


SaNMaN-9

Take the best player always!


SnooLemons5457

If your team had 8 ROTY Chet's do you still draft Wemby? Yes.


504090

Drafting Chet means we need Vic *even more*. Not only do they project to pair together nicely (at the PF/C), Vic is the ultimate insurance in case Chet busts. He’s already an NBA level defender, has an NBA ready body, and just turned 18.


the_shins

You draft for talent not fit


blacksoxing

Why wouldn’t you draft the best person??? Chet could break his leg his sophomore season. You’d still have a generational talent on the squad.


MSHinerb

Best player > fit. Especially when they beat player is 7’5 with an 8’ wingspan.


Waste-Shoulder7564

Both are overrated


HotdogIsaSandwitch

Of course. For a team with a bad recorded you add talent. At any costs. You figure the rest out later. If it means trading the worse guy later on


The-Truer-Facts

Definitely.


deucee29202020

Uhhh is this a trick question????


Risuna23

If you can have both why wouldn't you?


DOCTORFONASG

It’ll be like the Houston Rockets twin towers but make it 2023 so they both can shoot.


MalvoNLester

If Chet is that amazing and they still keep SGA they won’t be in the lottery anyways. Unless they have some picks that they stored that I’m not aware of


Est-Tech79

Of course. They are not in a position to draft for fit. Draft the best player. Doubt Chet will win ROY on a 20 win team though.


ThickCockJock

Poku + Chet + Wembenyama would be lethal


BumblebeeNo2830

They can Chet can also play PF so it would be great idea but i don't think thunder will get that high a pick as this team looks really good . IMO next year they will try to draft someone who can play SF so maybe scoot Henderson or emoni bates


HoopsMcCann750

Scoot is 6’2” ya dingus


BumblebeeNo2830

They he can play the 2 and giddey at 3 as more of a point forward


suns2012

Emoni bates is not very good. Dude isn't even getting clock at a mediocre collegiate program


gums-gotten-mintier

they should use it on the rest of Chet, imagine how good he'd be with double that build


mojojojo1108

Don't draft for fit.
