Thunder take Kentucky's Bledsoe with 18th pick

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma City Thunder have selected
Kentucky guard Eric Bledsoe with the 18th overall pick in the NBA
draft.
Bledsoe became the fourth Kentucky player taken in the draft
after the Wildcats spent most of last season as the No. 1-ranked
team in the nation.
The 6-foot-1 freshman set a school record with eight 3-pointers
while scoring a career-high 29 points in Kentucky's win against
East Tennessee State in the NCAA tournament.
Bledsoe joins a backcourt that features Russell Westbrook, Thabo
Sefolosha and last year's first-round pick, James Harden.
The Thunder are coming off a season with a 27-win improvement
that ended with a loss to the Los Angeles Lakers in the first round
of the playoffs.
