31. Charlotte Bobcats – Miles Plumlee, C, Duke
Plumlee’s stock has soared with great performances in workouts as has flashed excellent athleticism. The Bobcats needed everything except a brand new head coach no one outside of St. John’s has ever heard of.
32. Washington Wizards – Doron Lamb, SG, Kentucky
One of the best shooters in the draft, can play either guard spot in spurts or come off the bench as a shooter.
33. Cleveland Cavaliers – John Jenkins, SG, Vanderbilt
Pure shooter with a sweet stroke yet can get to the basket, too. Has some experience handling the ball as well.
34. Cleveland Cavaliers – Kosta Papanikolaou, SF, Olympiacos
Papanikolaou is a very steady player that doesn’t necessarily excel in any one area but works hard and is productive despite not being very athletic.
35. Golden State Warriors – Darius Miller, SF, Kentucky
Experienced starter and solid all around player, Miller helps Golden State upgrade its perimeter.
36. Sacramento Kings – Tony Wroten, Jr., PG, Washington
One of the best athletes in the draft, extremely high upside. Despite concerns about his jump shot, he can do enough other things to have an impact. With Tyreke Evans the subject of rampant trade speculation, a playmaker could be needed behind Isiah Thomas.
37. Toronto Raptors – Kyle O’Quinn, PF, Norfolk State
The Raptors are able to find a promising big on the board here, and O’Quinn fits in nicely with his ability to face up and shoot. Gotta have some brawn behind Jonas Valanciunas and Andrea Bargnani.
38. Denver Nuggets – Tyshawn Taylor, PG, Kentucky
Taylor is a first-round talent and great athlete, and if he falls this far it’s a no-brainer for Denver, which is looking to replace Andre Miller.
39. Detroit Pistons – Jared Cunningham, SG, Oregon State
According to several scouts Cunningham is the top athlete in this draft. Cunningham is lightning fast and knows how to finish, which is something Detroit has needed ever since they let Arron Affallo get away.
40. Portland Trail Blazers – Tomas Satoransky, SG, Sevilla
According to a source the Pistons are targeting international prospects with their second-round picks. Satoransky has good size and ballhandling skills.
41. Portland Trail Blazers – Scott Machado, PG, Iona
Machado is an exciting player to watch and can light it up in a hurry. While Portland prefers to go international, if Machado is here that may be too tough to pass on. They want to rid themselves of Ray Felton.
42. Milwaukee Bucks – Orlando Johnson, SG, UC Santa Barbara
Johnson is smooth scoring guard that will contribute right away with his point production ability. The Bucks will look for some perimeter help if they can find a big to replace Andrew Bogut when they pick in the first round.
43. Atlanta Hawks – Drew Gordon, PF, New Mexico
Gordon has is a good rebounder with nice size and athleticism. If the Hawks select Gordon he could add depth to their frontcourt right away. There ain’t much behind Marvin Williams, who ain’t much himself.
44. Detroit Pistons – Kevin Jones, PF, West Virginia
Beyond Greg Monroe, the Pistons don’t get enough offense from their bigs. Jones would help space the court and give Monroe space since he is such a good shooter. If he supplants Charlie Villanueva in the rotation, we all know who will head the list of most overpaid players next season.
45. Philadelphia 76ers – Tornike Shengelia, PF, Charleroi
Shengelia has a nose for scoring and can play some SF for Philadelphia, which has to make decisions on its two big-money players — Elton Brand (amnesty?) and Andre Iguodala (trade?)
46. New Orleans Hornets – Khris Middleton, SF, Texas A&M
Middleton’s stock took a dive this year due to injuries, but the talent there is intriguing. Middleton is long and athletic and can score off the dribble. Hornets need building blocks, and there is a hole at SF with Trevor Ariza gone and Rashard Lewis likely to be bought out.
47. Utah Jazz – Henry Sims, PF, Georgetown
Sims is an intriguing big because he is able to facilitate from the foul line and quick enough to get by his defender. Extremely long wingspan, 7’4” for a power forward. Sort of an anti-Millsap.
48. New York Knicks – Darius Johnson-Odom, PG, Marquette
DJO is a very athletic guard that can play both the point and off the ball. Gifted scorer that will be great off the bench, and a third point guard will be needed behind Jeremy Lin and whichever veteran the Knicks can bring in.
49. Orlando Magic – JaMychal Green, PF, Alabama
Green has had a great draft season as he excelled at Portsmouth and has really wowed teams in workouts. Green is very long and athletic and has a deceptively good offensive game. Helps make Glen Davis expendable if the Magic try to include Big Baby in any Howard deal.
50. Denver Nuggets – Furkan Aldemir, PF, Galatasaray
Aldemir is a very good rebounder who can continue to play and develop overseas. Not your typical European big man. Could be the next of the Turks, following Hedo Turkoglu, Semih Erden and Omer Asik.
51. Boston Celtics – Kevin Murphy, SG, Tennessee Tech
Murphy is one of the top sleepers in the draft as many around the league didn’t feel he played against top competition, but Murphy is a gifted scorer with great size. Somebody eventually has to replace Paul Pierce in the dropping buckets department.
52. Golden State Warriors – Quincy Acy, PF, Baylor
Acy describes himself as a Reggie Evans type of player, and watching him that is a fair description. Acy is an athletic big that can defend multiple positions, rebound, and block some shots.
53. Los Angeles Clippers – Jae Crowder, PF, Marquette
Crowder was one of the most productive players in college, and while there are questions about his position, he gets the job done on the court. Best hair of any likely draftee.
54. Philadelphia 76ers – Kris Joseph, SF, Syracuse
Joseph is a proven scorer and solid all around player. Having played for four years at Syracuse, he is ready to step in and contribute right away. And again, if Iguodala is traded there will be minutes available at his position.
55. Dallas Mavericks – Kim English, SF, Missouri
English is a solid all-around player that can shoot — and they may need one of those of Jason Terry leaves as a free agent. English has high IQ and can play all along the perimeter, which would help the Mavericks.
56. Toronto Raptors – Hollis Thompson, SF, Georgetown
Thompson is a very reliable shooter because of consistent mechanics. While at Georgetown, Thompson was a very good rebounder as well.
57. Brooklyn Nets – Bernard James, C, Florida State
Will contribute right away due to his size, strength, athleticism, and maturity. James’ character is highly regarded, and if he weren’t 27 he would likely be a first round pick. Might get to be tutored by Dwight Howard.
58. Minnesota Timberwolves – Mike Scott, PF, Virginia
Scott is a very solid offensive player and shows polish. Should be able to provide valuable minutes off the bench for a team right away, and Kevin Love cannot play 48 minutes.
59. San Antonio Spurs – Leon Radosevic, PF, Milano
Radosevic is your typical European big: smart, polished, and not overly athletic. At 22, with his size would be a likely candidate for a team like the Spurs.
60. Los Angeles Lakers – Tu Holloway, PG, Xavier
Holloway is a savvy point guard that knows how to run a team and is not afraid to take big shots. Would be a good fit in the Lakers’ locker room, and a playing time candidate if Ramon Sessions departs after opting out.
