Thorpe Likes Sonics Draft

There are not a lot of NBA analysts whose opinions I respect more than ESPN Insider's David Thorpe, who writes about the league when he's not busy training players like Sacramento's Kevin Martin and 2006 Sonics second-round pick Yotam Halperin.

Thorpe told TrueHoop he loves what the Sonics have done tonight:

"Then Jeff Green is an off the charts good person, and probably the best player in this draft -- except for maybe Julian Wright -- to play alongside Kevin Durant. He can help the team without needing the ball, while being your third go-to guy."

Go read Thorpe's entire comment. You won't regret it.

Oh by the way, Adam Silver just made the Sonics-Celtics deal official official (as if it wasn't when Sam Presti told us about it).
