Oklahoma City and Sacremeto are both teams who have taken steps forward and then steps backward in recent years.
OKC is two full seasons removed from the beginning of their rebuild while the Kings have missed the playoffs the past 16 seasons.
Both teams, though, are in similar standing in the Western Conference and their roster makeup.
Last season the Kings finished with a record of 30-52, while the Thunder went 24-58. The offseason though has separated the two teams slightly. The Kings had the No. 4 overall pick in this season’s draft.
