Share on RSS


A former Oklahoma State Cowboy heard his name first last night in the 2021 NBA Draft.

Cade Cunningham became the highest pick in OK-State program history.

Cunningham is the fourth top-10 pick the Pokes have produced. He was one of the top players in the country this past winter in Stillwater, averaging 20.1 points-per-game, 6.2 rebounds all while shooting 44-percent from the field and 40-percent from three.

Most expected Cunningham to go to Detroit, but the Pistons were unwilling to share the information before it was official last night.

The Oklahoma City Thunder picked up a guard from Australia, Josh Giddey. Giddey was named Rookie of the Year in Australia’s National Basketball League. He averaged 10.9 points, 7.3 rebounds and 7.6 assists per contest.

The Thunder also selected Florida guard Tre Mann with the No. 18 pick in the draft. OKC traded its other first-round pick to the Houston Rockets.
