OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma City has selected Pittsburgh center Steven Adams with the 12th pick in the NBA draft, hoping to add a complementary piece to play alongside stars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.
The 7-foot Adams played just one season for the Panthers, averaging 7.2 points and 6.3 points per game while being named to the Big East All-Rookie Team.
The Thunder lost in the NBA Finals last year to Miami and had the best record in the Western Conference this season, finishing 60-22. However, Westbrook injured his right knee in a first-round win over Houston, and Oklahoma City was ousted in the second round by Memphis.
Oklahoma City has three of the first 32 picks in the draft, with No. 29 and 32 to go along with the Adams' pick.
