Seattle Supersonics NBA Draft picks

Seattle picks Kevin Durant at no.2 and acquires Jeff Green at no. 5 via the Celtics.

"If there was any question entering Thursday that the 2007 NBA Draft was the dawn of a new era in Seattle SuperSonics history, it was removed when the Sonics followed the selection of Texas forward Kevin Durant No. 2 overall with a blockbuster trade. The Sonics dealt All-Star guard Ray Allen to Boston in exchange for the rights to No. 5 pick Jeff Green, guard Delonte West and forward Wally Szczerbiak in a trade that also saw the teams swap second-round picks.

With Durant and Green, the Sonics became the second team since 1983 to get two of the top five picks in the Draft (Tyson Chandler and Eddy Curry went to Chicago in 2001) and instantly made over the team in the style envisioned by new General Manager Sam Presti."
