Nick Ongenda in OKC for presumed Thunder pre-draft visit

The 2023 NBA draft is roughly a week away, which means draft prospects are touring the country and meeting with teams.

The Oklahoma City Thunder are looking at possibly adding two rookies to their roster. They own the No. 12 and No. 50 picks in the draft.

Undrafted free agency could also be an avenue used by the Thunder to collect rookie talent. One possibility using that route is DePaul center Nick Ongenda, who is in OKC for a presumed draft workout for the Thunder, per his Instagram story.

The 22-year-old spent four college seasons at DePaul. In eight games last season, he averaged 12.5 points on 46.6% shooting, 6.3 rebounds and 4.4 blocks. He missed most of the season while recovering from a wrist injury.

Ongenda could be an option in undrafted free agency — or if the Thunder like him enough, they could select him with their No. 50 pick.

The 2023 NBA draft is scheduled for Thursday, June 22. A full list of prospects who’ve met with the Thunder can be read here.
