The mistake was that OKC could've had Taj Gibson instead, who is much, much better than Mullens. Gibson would've been a great fit on OKC too.
How is he "much, much" better than Mullens? Mulley just turned 24 the other day and Taj will be 28 in July. Taj has a per of 14.85 ans Mullens is 13.5. Let's see what Mully's per is in 3.5 years to compare apples to apples development and age wise.
Taj plays this newfangled thing called defense, which is always suspiciously absent from PER calculations.
Also, I like how you want to compare "apples to apples" in terms of age, but not in terms of role. Mullens starts and has a green light to jack up a ton of shots. When Taj starts, he puts up 16 pts and 12 reb on 60% FG - all much better than Mullens' production as a starter.
