Updated: 6/27/13 8:07 pm

Player | Ht | Wt | Pos | Team | Age

Alex Len

  1. Cleveland | Alex Len | 7-1 | 255 | C | Maryland | 24

The Cavs like the boom or bust prospect with some rudimentary post moves and a ton of potential. *Zydrunas Ilguaskas
Victor Oladipo

  2. *Orlando | Victor Oladipo | 6-4 | 213 | SG/SF | Indiana | 26

A tireless worker who can attack the rim and play lockdown defense. BMac is sliding due to being out of shape so Dipo has moved up Orlando's big board. He'd come in and contribute immediately, replaces Arron Afflalo, who they might trade to LAC for Eric Bledsoe. *Tony Allen w/better offense
Otto Porter

  3. Washington | Otto Porter | 6-9 | 200 | SF | Georgetown | 24

John Wall wants Anthony Bennett but Porter is too good to pass up here. Arguably the safest pick in the draft; he can do a little bit of everything. Add Porter to a core of Wall, Beal, and Nene and the Wizards are a borderline playoff team next season. *Jeff Green
Nerlens Noel

  4. Charlotte | Nerlens Noel | 6-11 | 206 | PF/C | Kentucky | 24

One of the best shot blockers in the draft but an offensive liability. Missed half of last season with his ACL injury but has some of the highest potential in the draft. BMac is somehow right there for the Hornets to take, but as usual MJ takes a risk on draft day. Charlotte's frontcourt of the future is set with Nerlens Noel joining Bismack Biyombo on the team's front line. Will the Bobcats curse bite him; will his knee ever fully heal? We'll see... *Larry Sanders (best)/Jonathan Bender w/better defense (worst)
Ben McLemore

  5. Phoenix | Ben McLemore | 6-5 | 190 | SG | Kansas | 25

Elite athlete with a good feel for the game and versatile. I've heard BMac is starting to slide due to being out of shape, the Suns are pleasantly surprised he's still available. Rebuilding Phoenix moves on from Shannon Brown & Jared Dudley with BMac as their franchise player. *Jason Richardson (GSW days)
Trey Burke

  6. *New Orleans | Trey Burke | 6-1 | 190 | PG | Michigan | 25

Greivis Vasquez had a pretty good year for the Pelicans (then the Hornets), but Burke would be an instant upgrade. He's a flat out competitor and winner who can lead this young team on the court and in the locker room for 10 years. He'd form NoLa's duo of the future with Anthony Davis, and replace CP3. *Ty Lawson
CJ McCollum

  7. *Sacramento | CJ McCollum | 6-3 | 197 | PG/SG | Lehigh | 26

An ultra athletic scoring guard who's really more of a SG with PG skills. Could be one of the best players from this draft when it's all said and done, the Kings have worked him out twice and he makes sense since Tyreke is a free agent. *Damian Lillard/Gilbert Arenas
Anthony Bennett

  8. Detroit | Anthony Bennett | 6-7 | 240 | SF/PF | UNLV | 25

I'm not sold on Bennett, he's too much of a tweener and which position he plays in the NBA will depend on what team drafts him. He could play either forward position for the Pistons, giving them a solid three man rotation of Monroe, Drummond & Bennett. *Brandon Bass/Jason Maxiell
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope

  9. *Utah | Kentavious Caldwell-Pope | 6-6 | 205 | SG | Georgia | 25

A no brainer pick. The Wolves need a legit SG to pair with Rubio & K Love. Add KCP to a healthy starting 5 and the Wolves will contend for the 8 seed next season.
Cody Zeller

  10. *Portland | Cody Zeller | 7-0 | 230 | PF/C | Indiana | 25

Baby Z has a solid all-around game, not a franchise big man but like his brother he'll be a solid rotation player. Rumors say that the Blazers could draft Zeller and trade him to the Suns in a deal for Marcin Gortat. Portland gets a legit center to play alongside Aldridge while Meyers Leonard develops, and the Suns continue rebuilding with their frontcourt of the future, Nerlens at the 5 and Zeller at the 4. *David Lee
Rudy Gobert

  11. *Philadelphia | Rudy Gobert | 7-2 | 238 | C | France | 25

An absolute giant, one of the biggest/tallest players I've seen in 7 years following the draft. He's 7'2" with a 7'7" wingspan and could develop into a solid back-to-the-basket type player. New GM Sam Hinkie swings for the fences with this boom or bust prospect to move on from the Andrew Bynum disaster. *Shawn Bradley w/Roy Hibbert's height
Michael Carter-Williams

  12. *Oklahoma Cty | Michael Carter-Williams | 6-6 | 185 | PG | Syracuse | 26

The Thunder go BPA. MCW is a natural distributor but has no other offensive skills. They could keep him as a change of pace from Westbrook but if they do they'll have to trade Reggie Jackson to a PG needy team. *Shaun Livingston
Sergey Karasev

  13. *Boston | Sergey Karasev | 6-7 | 197 | SG/SF | Russia | 24

The Mavs are looking to trade this pick to clear cap space so they can make a run at Dwight Howard or another top FA. The Cavs like Karasev and are interested in trading up to this pick to take him. He's a typical sharpshooting European wing who would complete the Cavs' post-LeBron starting 5. I've heard he's the most NBA-ready of the international players. *Eric Piatkowski
Dennis Schroder

  14. *Minnesota | Dennis Schroder | 6-2 | 168 | PG | Germany | 24

A quick PG who's got some great moves off the pick and roll, perfect for my Jazz. Utah is a franchise PG away from becoming a consistent playoff team, Schroeder is very raw but has the potential to be one of the best PGs in this draft. If I were the Jazz I'd run to the podium to turn in our pick if this guy is still available at 14. *Rajon Rondo
Allen Crabbe

  15. Milwaukee | Allen Crabbe | 6-6 | 197 | SG | California | 26

Monta Ellis will not be back next season, the Bucks need guys who can shoot the ball. Crabbe's got one of the best shooting strokes in the draft. This is a bit of a reach but historically the Bucks have gone with who *they* think will fit on their team, not the consensus pick or BPA. Neither Larry Sanders nor John Henson were linked to Milwaukee in their respective drafts.
Shabazz Muhammad

  16. *Atlanta | Shabazz Muhammad | 6-6 | 225 | SF | UCLA | 25

A huge fall for a guy we all thought could go #1 overall this time a year ago. He's a gifted scorer with a very bad selfish streak. This could actually be the best situation for Shabazz. With Doc in Lob City and KG & Pierce likely headed to Brooklyn, the C's are in full on rebuilding mode. Shabazz would replace Pierce, learn to be a pro in the Celtics way and learn to share the ball playing with Rondo if he isn't traded too. *a poor man's James Harden/Nick Anderson
Kelly Olynyk

  17. Atlanta | Kelly Olynyk | 7-0 | 234 | C | Gonzaga | 27

Has a polished offensive game but no athleticism and poor workouts could cause him to drop. The Hawks need size, Olynyk would be a solid backup for Al Horford and a protege for Zaza Pachulia who is a free agent. *Luis Scola
Giannis Adetokoubo

  18. *Dallas | Giannis Adetokoubo | 6-10 | 205 | SF | Greece | 23

A long, athletic stretch forward with a smooth, fluid playing style. Josh Smith is as good as gone and Giannis could be a solid replacement. He probably won't come over right away as he is very young and didn't face much elite competition in Greece. Lots of comparisons have been tossed around including the Greek Kevin Durant, I think that's setting the bar way too high. Giannis' fast rise from unknown to first rounder has earned him some Bismack Biyombo comparisons. *Nic Batum w/PG skills
Lucas Nogueira

  19. *Cleveland | Lucas Nogueira | 7-0 | 220 | PF/C | Brazil | 25

This pick is rumored to be getting traded to the Mavs for the #13 pick. Bebe is a project but the Mavs want to draft and stash if they make a pick at all. They'll need frontcourt depth in the very near future. Bebe has some improving defensive skills but can't opt out of his contract with Barcelona. *Samuel Dalembert/Ryan Hollins
Glen Rice Jr.

  20. Chicago | Glen Rice Jr. | 6-6 | 211 | SG | USA | 27

An athletic slasher and efficient scorer from as far out as the 3 point line. He could be a good sleeper pick for the Bulls. They need to find some legit 2 guards to help take some of the pressure off of D Rose. Richard Hamilton probably won't be back.
Mason Plumlee

  21. *Minnesota | Mason Plumlee | 6-11 | 238 | PF | Duke | 28

I'm not as high on Plumlee as some of the other frontcourt prospects, but I have a gut feeling my Jazz will end up taking this guy with one of their picks. He's athletic and fast but drops due to no consistent offensive game. He'd benefit learning from Karl Malone. He'd be an upgrade over Jeremy Evans backing up Derrick Favors. *Jordan Hill
Gorgui Dieng

  22. Brooklyn | Gorgui Dieng | 6-11 | 230 | C | Louisville | 28

The first national champion Cardinal off the board would come in and immediately put up solid stats backing up Brook Lopez. The Nets need bench depth, especially a legit reserve who can come in and spell their budding superstar. Really I think Dieng should go a lot higher, he's a surer thing than Adams, Gobert, or Bebe. *Joel Anthony
Shane Larkin

  23. Indiana | Shane Larkin | 5-11 | 171 | PG | Miami | 25

A true PG who creates shots for his teammates and has the ability to take the big shot himself. D.J. Augustin is a free agent, Larkin would be Larry Bird's choice for George Hill's backup. He assembled this current Pacers team but isn't invested in Augustin. Son of Hall of Fame shortstop Barry Larkin. *Mike Conley (best)/D.J. Augustin (worst)
Tony Mitchell

  24. New York | Tony Mitchell | 6-9 | 236 | SF/PF | North Texas | 26

Tony Mitchell is a top 5 talent whose stock plummeted after being kicked off Missouri before ever playing for the Tigers. Struggled in the Sun Belt...not a good sign for a potential first rounder. The Knicks get younger in the frontcourt, Marcus Camby is 39 and K-Mart is 35. Mitchell has been linked to the Knicks. *Kenyon Martin/Tyrus Thomas
Jamaal Franklin

  25. LA Clippers | Jamaal Franklin | 6-5 | 191 | SG/SF | San Diego St. | 26

Franklin is one of the most intriguing players in the draft, he can rebound like a PF and score like a guard. Definitely one of my favorite prospects this year. The Clips can afford to go BPA, Doc could coach this guy up into a stud. I really believe Franklin will be one of those players teams will regret passing on in this draft, much like his former teammate Kawhi Leonard in 2011. *Terrence Williams
Steven Adams

  26. *Oklahoma Cty | Steven Adams | 7-0 | 255 | C | Pittsburgh | 24

Here is 2013's PJ3, forum. Adams could go late lottery but thanks to his rawness and low production at Pitt last season, he falls to the late first round. An athletic big with some raw defensive skills. He'd be good frontcourt depth behind Nik Pekovic in Minny. The Wolves plan to match any offer Pekovic gets in free agency. *Meyers Leonard (right now)/Brook Lopez (potentially)
Isaiah Canaan

  27. Denver | Isaiah Canaan | 6-0 | 190 | PG | Murray St. | 27

Isaiah Canaan is the best shooting PG in the draft and has the clutch gene. Anyone else remember his game winning 3 pointer from his knees and MSU's Tourney upset of Vanderbilt? Crazy. He'd backup Ty Lawson when Andre Miller retires. They could also use his scoring since Iggy could be gone and Gallo will be out rehabbing until February. The Nuggets kill two birds with one stone. *Jameer Nelson
Jeff Withey

  28. San Antonio | Jeff Withey | 7-0 | 222 | C | Kansas | 28

One-dimensional skillset, a monster shot blocker. Once again the Spurs get a great value late in the first round. That's why they're still making the Finals even as their core 3 are in their final seasons. Great drafting. Withey could step in and replace Duncan at center when he retires. *Omer Asik
Bojan Dubljevic

  29. *Phoenix | Bojan Dubljevic | 6-9 | 235 | PF/C | Montenegro | 26

It's rumored that the Thunder will go with an international player here. They need frontcourt depth, Kendrick Perkins was good in Boston but has lost his edge and is holding OKC back from making it back to the Finals. Draft & stash this guy then bring him over when they cut ties with Perk.
Tim Hardaway Jr

  30. *Golden St. | Tim Hardaway Jr | 6-6 | 200 | SG | Michigan | 26

I've always been big on Hardaway as a first round pick, though here he drops to the last pick in the first. He's athletic and versatile with a good skillset. He'd solve the Suns' backcourt scoring woes. They were forced to start aging, injury-prone Michael Redd at the 2 in 2011-12. Son of former NBA PG Tim Hardaway. *Wes Matthews
Tony Snell

  31. *Cleveland | Tony Snell | 6-7 | 198 | SG/SF | New Mexico | 26

An athletic wing. The Cavs go BPA and take one more wing for depth if Karasev doesn't come over right away. They've made more surprising picks than this in recent years. Snell could also go to the Cavs at #19 if they don't trade up with the Mavericks.
Livio Jean-Charles

  32. *Oklahoma Cty | Livio Jean-Charles | 6-9 | 217 | SF/PF | France | 24

The Thunder are solid at pretty much every position so they can afford to draft and stash twice. They probably won't even keep this pick.
Nate Wolters

  33. Cleveland | Nate Wolters | 6-5 | 196 | PG | South Dakota St. | 27

Wolters is a good floor general who models his game after Steve Nash. He'd be a reliable, safe backup for Kyrie. *Kirk Hinrich
Nemanja Nedovic

  34. *Houston | Nemanja Nedovic | 6-3 | 190 | PG/SG | Serbia | 26

I like this kid, he could end up being nice draft and stash value for the Rockets. One of my sleeper international players. Houston needs more PG depth behind Jeremy Lin in case Patrick Beverley turns out to be a half-year wonder.
Ricardo Ledo

  35. *Philadelphia | Ricardo Ledo | 6-6 | 197 | SG | Providence | 25

Ledo was ineligible last season and is very raw, but can put up points in bunches. He definitely came out too early but he must've had his reasons. The rebuilding Sixers go all in again on another boom or bust guy who could compliment Evan Turner coming off the bench.
Reggie Bullock

  36. Sacramento | Reggie Bullock | 6-7 | 200 | SG/SF | North Carolina | 27

Bullock could be a steal. He has a great shot and moves well without the ball. Didn't reach his full potential while at UNC so he has lots of room to grow at the next level. He'd be an upgrade over Marcus Thornton and replace Francisco Garcia in Sacramento. *Klay Thompson
Trevor Mbakwe

  37. Detroit | Trevor Mbakwe | 6-8 | 236 | PF/C | Minnesota | 29

Trevor Mbakwe was a lottery prospect until the injury bug hit him hard, he also got arrested for DUI in October. He's a good rebounder so some team will take a chance on him. He'd be a solid backup for Greg Monroe in Detroit. *Lavoy Allen
CJ Leslie

  38. *Milwaukee | CJ Leslie | 6-9 | 209 | SF/PF | NC State | 26

This could actually be a perfect fit; Leslie played with Wall in HS and Wall told the Wizards front office that he wants a stretch forward in the lineup. Leslie would be an upgrade over 1st round bust Chris Singleton. *Hakim Warrick
Archie Goodwin

  39. *Portland | Archie Goodwin | 6-5 | 189 | SG | Kentucky | 23

Archie Goodwin has loads of potential, he's one of the best scorers in the draft, but should drop after a disappointing freshman season at UK. The Blazers want to find a scoring guard to take some of the pressure off of Lillard & Aldridge this summer. *Alec Burks/Iman Shumpert
Erick Green

  40. Portland | Erick Green | 6-3 | 180 | PG/SG | Virginia Tech | 27

ACC POY Erick Green is an efficient scorer who could sneak into the early second or late first round. He'd be an interesting choice to be Damian Lillard's backup of the future. Nolan Smith isn't the answer.
Alex Abrines

  41. *Memphis | Alex Abrines | 6-6 | 190 | SG | Spain | 24

A lanky wing player with the ability to score from both inside and out, he's got a good range on his jumper and has solid ballhandling for his position. Memphis gets some draft and stash wing depth; Abrines likely won't come over next season. *Rudy Fernandez
Mike Muscala

  42. *New Orleans | Mike Muscala | 6-11 | 230 | PF/C | Bucknell | 26

More frontcourt depth. Muscala is a solid all-around big man who I see fitting into a team's rotation for 8-10 years. *Nick Collison/Matt Bonner
Lorenzo Brown

  43. *Dallas | Lorenzo Brown | 6-5 | 189 | PG/SG | NC State | 27

Lorenzo Brown is a solid all around player. Brandon Jennings might not be back either, and Brown would be a solid replacement if he's still here at this point. *Greivis Vasquez
Kenny Kadji

  44. *Atlanta | Kenny Kadji | 6-10 | 242 | PF/C | Miami | 30

Kenny Kadji can score in a variety of ways, has a nice touch on his jumpshot, and plays catch and shoot on offense; but is a liability on defense. The Mavericks need frontcourt depth because Elton Brand & Chris Kaman are both free agents.
Janis Timma

  45. *Portland | Janis Timma | 6-8 | 226 | SF | Latvia | 25

Another draft & stash. The Blazers could use some depth behind Nicolas Batum.
Andre Roberson

  46. Utah | Andre Roberson | 6-7 | 206 | SF/PF | Colorado | 26

An explosive athlete with tremendous leading ability and a high motor. The Jazz also need wing depth, Roberson's tough style of play makes him an instant upgrade over Marvin Williams, who just plain sucks. *Matt Barnes
James Southerland

  47. *Denver | James Southerland | 6-8 | 221 | SF/PF | Syracuse | 28

More wing depth for the Hawks, who could also lose Kyle Korver in free agency. James Southerland would be a logical replacement for the shooting specialist; he averaged 13.5 PPG during the regular season and 11 during Syracuse's Final Four run.
Vitalis Chikoko

  48. LA Lakers | Vitalis Chikoko | 6-10 | 219 | PF/C | Germany | 27

Breaking news out of ESPN reports that Dwight doesn't plan to re-sign with the Lakers. But they're the Lakers and will sign someone to replace Dwight over replacing him with a late second rounder. Draft & stash this guy for more depth later on.
Dewayne Dedmon

  49. Chicago | Dewayne Dedmon | 6-11 | 240 | C | USC | 28

Dedmon is super athletic, dunks on almost every play and has good touch for a big man. Could become a good back-to-the-basket player with improved hands. I watched him during the Combine, the potential's definitely there. He'd thrive in Tom Thibodeau's system and possibly reach that potential. *Jerome James
Myck Kabongo

  50. *Miami | Myck Kabongo | 6-2 | 180 | PG | Texas | 26

A special playmaker who's always looking for the open man, excellent ballhandler, extremely quick. Too raw to be a first round pick. Jeff Teague is a free agent, he'll probably be re-signed but Kabongo is good value here to have behind Teague & Lou Williams.
DeShaun Thomas

  51. *Orlando | DeShaun Thomas | 6-6 | 220 | SF/PF | Ohio State | 26

DeShaun Thomas played surprisingly well for Ohio State this season and is a steal this late in the draft. Hedo Turkoglu is getting up there in age so the Magic should get one more wing for depth since they already have Maurice Harkless to eventually replace Hedo in the starting 5. *Thaddeus Young
Ray McCallum

  52. *Minnesota | Ray McCallum | 6-1 | 190 | PG | Detroit | 26

McCallum is an explosive playmaker with a traditional PG playing style. A coach's son, you know what that means. He'd be Ricky Rubio's backup of the future; Luke Ridnour could reportedly get traded tonight and will be 34 next season anyway.
Ryan Kelly

  53. Indiana | Ryan Kelly | 6-11 | 230 | PF | Duke | 27

Ryan Kelly's 36 point outing against Miami was impressive, especially since it was his first game back from an injury. He'll get some looks in the second round. David West & Tyler Hansbrough are both free agents, at least one won't be re-signed (probably Psycho T). The Pacers could take a flyer on Kelly as insurance in case they don't re-sign both PFs.
Peyton Siva

  54. *Philadelphia | Peyton Siva | 6-1 | 181 | PG | Louisville | 27

Now that Peyton Siva is a national champion, teams might be willing to take a flyer on him at the end of the second round. He's a good all-around player who'll provide leadership for whatever team he ends up on. John Wall needs a legit backup. *A.J. Price
Erik Murphy

  55. Memphis | Erik Murphy | 6-10 | 240 | PF | Florida | 27

Erik Murphy could end up being a solid rotational player in the NBA. He'd be more depth behind Z Bo in Memphis. Darrell Arthur is the subject of trade rumors.
Jordan Aboudou

  56. *Detroit | Jordan Aboudou | 6-6 | 210 | SG/SF | France | 27

Backcourt scoring is the Pistons' biggest weakness. They could go for Brandon Paul or B.J. Young but we all know this is the time in the second round when random international draft & stashes get chosen over some of our favorite college players.
Mindaugas Kupsas

  57. *Phoenix | Mindaugas Kupsas | 7-2 | 276 | C | Lithuania | 27

Same situation here. The Suns will try to trade Marcin Gortat, here's a draft and stash to keep overseas if they do. They just took Nerlens and traded for Zeller so they're set in the frontcourt for now.
Seth Curry

  58. San Antonio | Seth Curry | 6-2 | 180 | PG/SG | Duke | 27

A similar skillset to his brother, though Seth's more of a SG while Steph turned heads last year as a scoring PG. It makes almost too much sense for the Spurs to take a flyer on Seth if he's still available at #58. He'd be another offensive sparkplug off the bench and could even be considered a potential replacement for Tony Parker. *Chauncey Billups
Augusto Lima

  59. *Minnesota | Augusto Lima | 6-10 | 234 | PF | Brazil | 26

Lima is another one of my international draft sleepers, he's a great draft & stash value with the second-to-last pick in the draft. Kevin Love has expressed discontent with the direction the Wolves franchise is headed. Maybe his opinion will change now that Kahn's out, we'll find out eventually. *Tyrone Hill
Solomon Hill

  60. *Memphis | Solomon Hill | 6-7 | 226 | SF | Arizona | 27

One of my second round sleepers. He's a good all around player who'll provide more depth at the wing in the wake of the Rudy Gay trade.
