Grant Jerrett was introduced to Oklahoma City fans and media today, after the Thunder made him the No. 40 pick in Thursday's NBA Draft.

He repeatedly expressed happiness to be in the organization and city where he landed.

“It's great,” Jerrett said of the Thunder, in remarks reported by the Oklahoman. “I feel like I'm back at the U of A. This place has the feel of a college town. The community support here is just unreal. They've done so well on and off the court. I saw the (practice) facility — unreal.”

In a video posted by NewsOK, Jerrett said he was blessed to be with the Thunder particularly because of how they work with their community.

"Just seeing what this team does not only on the court but also off the court, how involved they are in the community, it just seems like a good fit for myself to come in and do what I can to make this organization better."
