With the Oklahoma City Thunder's recent moves it was quite obvious that Sam Presti sees value in Jeremy Lamb. Did Lamb get packaged in a draft day trade? Nope.

Jeremy Lamb was sent to Tulsa like many young Thunder of his ilk. In 21 games, Jeremy averaged 21 points, 5.3 rebounds, 3 assists, and 1.2 steals.
