Florida's Bradley Beal said the Thunder are among the teams that said they would try to move up to draft him.
The Hornets moved up three spots in the NBA draft lottery Wednesday night to land the No. 1 pick and, in the process, snatched the honor away from Charlotte, Washington and Cleveland.
Whichever team hits it big Wednesday night in New York will win the right to draft 19-year-old Kentucky phenom Anthony Davis, the consensus No. 1 pick in the NBA draft.
