With 28th overall pick of 2012 #NBADraft, @okcthunder select Perry Jones III, becoming third #Baylor first-round pick of #Big12 era.— Baylor Basketball (@BaylorMBB) June 29, 2012
This is a brilliant pick for the Thunder, and I can hardly imagine a better situation for Perry, who needs somewhere to learn and develop without tremendous expectations. He will be relatively close to his home in Duncanville and will have the opportunity to learn behind Kevin Durant, one of the best players on the planet. Congratulations, Perry! Your fall will be worth it in the end, my friend!
