2021 NBA Predictions: Win/Loss Record For All 30 Teams

28. Oklahoma City Thunder — 22-60 (No. 14 West)

Projected Starting Five

PG Shai Gilgeous-Alexander
SG Lu Dort
SF Josh Giddey
PF Darius Bazley
C Isaiah Roby

Another year of rebuilding looks to be in the cards for the Thunder. Head coach Mark Daigneault will be back for his second season on the bench. He’ll have a similarly ill-equipped roster as he did last year. The youth movement is in full-force, though the team did go out and sign a handful of veterans in Derrick Favors, Kenrich Williams, Mike Muscala and DJ Wilson. Gilgeous-Alexander is good enough to carry the team to a win here and there, but it won’t be enough to keep OKC out of the Western Conference cellar.
