Giddey’s world changed forever on Friday when the Thunder selected him with the sixth pick in the 2021 NBA draft. He joins fellow Australians, Luc Longley, Ben Simmons, Dante Exum, Thon Maker and Andrew Bogut as a top 10 NBA draft pick. Mike Schmitz – a respected NBA draft analyst and international scout – believes Giddey will excel in OKC as arguably the most intelligent player in the 2021 draft class. “It is a little bit of a surprise, but I like the pick,” Schmitz said in the NBA draft coverage on ESPN. From the @Adelaide36ers to the @okcthunder, congratulations to @joshgiddey on being selected 6th in the 2021 #NBA Draft.
