The Oklahoma City Thunder drafted UCLA guard Peyton Watson with the No. 30 overall selection in the 2022 NBA Draft.

Watson, who measures 6-foot-8 and 200 pounds, was then traded to the Denver Nuggets as part of a previously-reported trade that sent forward JaMychal Green to Oklahoma City.

Watson averaged 3.3 points and 2.9 rebounds in 12.7 minutes per game across 32 appearances with the Bruins as a freshman. The 19-year-old struggled to score efficiently in his lone collegiate season but managed to show flashes of defensive potential, thanks partially to his seven-foot wingspan.
