Andrew Nicholson in Oklahoma Possible But Is It Likely?

So if you're keeping count so far, soon to be NBA Draft pick, or possible Draft pick, Andrew Nicholson has already done two workouts thus far during this whole pre Draft period, Boston and the latest Oklahoma.

There has, yet again, been no word out from the Oklahoma side this time that has any indication of how well he did or how much the team was impressed by his performance.

Now admittedly I haven't been watching the NBA as hard as I would have largely due to the fact that there is so much more college ball for me to watch and pay attention too but I'd think that this team situation would not be the best for Nicholson from a playing time standpoint. But from a learning standpoint, it's a great situation. He'd have a vet guy like Nick Collison to learn from and going up against the likes of him, Serge Ibaka and Kendrick Perkins everyday in practice would definitely have him improving in almost all areas in leaps and bounds.

I wouldn't get my hopes up too high for this to happen just yet since there are four regular rotation big men committed by contract to the team for at least two years each and having another big like Nicholson may not be their biggest priority right now.

But the Thunder having in for a look does pose in interesting possibility particularly with the team having a pick towards the lower end of this year's Draft.
