Report: Thunder remaining extremely active in draft trade talks

Per Chad Ford:

I’ve heard that the Kings, Detroit Pistons, Indiana Pacers, New Orleans Hornets, Memphis Grizzlies, Toronto Raptors, Houston Rockets, Milwaukee Bucks, Chicago Bulls, San Antonio Spurs, Oklahoma City Thunder, Portland Trail Blazers and Denver Nuggets  have all been talking about moving picks. The Kings, Pacers, Hornets and Bucks would like to trade down, the Pistons, Grizzlies, Raptors, Rockets, Spurs, Thunder, Blazers and Nuggets would like to move up and the Pacers, Hornets and Bulls might want to get out of the draft completely.
From what I can gather, the Pacers, Hornets, Raptors, Spurs and Thunder are the most active right now.

So to recap: The most active teams that want to move down or out are the Pacers and Hornets and wanting to move up are the Raptors, Thunder and Spurs. The Hornets draft at 11 and likely want to shed some salary (Paja, Okafor, etc) for the price of draft picks plus a quality player, and the Pacers draft at 10 and likely want a point guard.
