Player | Ht | Wt | Pos | Team | Age

Alex Len

  1. Cleveland | Alex Len | 7-1 | 255 | C | Maryland | 25

The Cavaliers have made quite a surprise to express that they are more interested in drafting Alex Len over Nerlens Noel. Although it is understandable why they would be concerned with Noel's health issues, taking another Center when they must not count on Tyler Zeller is pretty questionable for Cleveland to make that move. However Len has a tremendous upside to his game and is a great shot blocker. Went through a lot of adversity at Maryland after making the adjustment moving to the states and after not knowing any English when he first arrived, Len really broke out his Sophomore year for the Terps. Many people are saying this could become another Kwame Brown/Michael Olawakandi pick since Len does have some bust potential. But I do believe that Len will have a successful NBA career. I see him being a Kosta Koufos which is pretty good as a starter in the league. The best I could see Len being is another Brook Lopez and probably the worst case scenario he could be another Hasheem Thabeet so there are several different ranges where Len could develop as a player whether he can be an All Star Caliber player to another Euro Bust.
Ben McLemore

  2. *Orlando | Ben McLemore | 6-5 | 190 | SG | Kansas | 25

Ben McLemore really came out of nowhere this past season after being ruled academically ineligible for the 2011-2012 season. Bill Self even stated McLemore as the most talented player he has ever coached. With the combination of his athleticism and his scoring ability, he is just one player who is pretty hard to pass on especially in a draft like this. It's down to him and Trey Burke over who the Magic will take with their second pick. McLemore's game just really fits the NBA and is more of a franchise changer than Trey Burke.
Otto Porter

  3. Washington | Otto Porter | 6-9 | 200 | SF | Georgetown | 25

Otto Porter has great size for the NBA being a 6'9 SF. Not only is he a slasher but he is a lock down defender. A better Tayshaun Prince is what I project him to be with his career. Washington is hurting at the SF positions with Trevor Ariza already starting to wear out and with Jan Vesely and Chris Singleton not reaching their expectations. He may not be from the D.C. area but he played at Georgetown which somewhat makes him the local guy which sometimes is the right option to choose. Plus him and Bradley Beal have known each other growing up so that makes a good connection for Porter and the Wizards as well.
Nerlens Noel

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

Teams being concerned with Noel's health issues after tearing his ACL will most likely take away his advantage of being the #1 overall pick. Injury issues or not it's very hard to pass on somebody as talented on defense as Nerlens Noel. He is still raw on offense but he led the NCAA in blocks as a true freshmen last year and has good upside that he still needs to develop on. With the Bobcats having Kemba Walker and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist running their franchise, Noel would give Charlotte a young big three.
Victor Oladipo

  5. Phoenix | Victor Oladipo | 6-4 | 213 | SG/SF | Indiana | 26

Victor Oladipo really climbed up the charts this past season after coming out of nowhere. Oladipo's outstanding motor really attracts NBA teams to take a chance on him. One thing that may hurt his potential a little bit is him being 6'4 which is a weird height for the NBA if your not a PG. Him having to guard mostly 6'5-6'8 players might concern teams a little bit. As it has been rumored that Portland and Minnesota are trying to trade up for Oladipo, I see him being a great fit for the Phoenix Suns starting a the SG position alongside Goran Dragic.
Trey Burke

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

Trey Burke shocked the nation with his breakthrough season at Michigan where he won both the Naismith and AP Player of the Year Awards and led his Wolverines to the championship game. Trey Burke just really knows how to play the game of basketball and makes his teammates play better when he is running the point. As of right now it really sounds like the Pelicans are trying to get rid of Eric Gordon who is not happy there, he could have Vasquez move to SG or right away start at the point no matter what if Vasquez is traded as well or not. The biggest concern about Burke's game is him being undersized and his strength.
CJ McCollum

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

CJ McCollum never really had a name for himself after he led his 15 seeded Lehigh to upset No. 2 seed Duke in the 2012 NCAA Tournament. McCollum has drawn some comparisons to Damian Lillard and Stephen Curry as he also was barely recruited and ended up playing at a low level of competition. Before his injury that caused him to miss more than half of his senior season and the remainder of his collegiate career, he led all of college basketball in scoring. The Sacramento Kings seem to be very interested in taking McCollum as he worked out for them twice. Isaiah Thomas looks better off as a backup PG although there have been rumors of the Kings trying to deal Thomas and there have also been rumors of them trading Jimmer Fredette. McCollum is definitely one of the most underrated prospects in this class.
Anthony Bennett

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

With Anthony Bennett's injury preventing him to work out for teams and with him gaining nearly 20 pounds since he suffered the injury, that could very well hurt his draft stock. Bennett is a tweener but I also believe that he can do well at the SF spot in the NBA. He has a great athletic ability along with his great outside shot and he should right away start at the SF spot over Singler if he lands in Detroit.
Cody Zeller

  9. *Utah | Cody Zeller | 7-0 | 230 | PF/C | Indiana | 25

With Nikola Pekovic becoming a free agent and with them needing a backup C, Zeller could be that guy whether Pekovic stays or leaves. Cody Zeller has great upside to his game and his results at the draft combine turned out well. From where he is right now, he seems like the best one of the three Zeller brothers but that won't be proven until he steps on an NBA court. Zeller may never be an All Star caliber player but he's just the kind of guy who can get the job done.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope

  10. *Portland | Kentavious Caldwell-Pope | 6-6 | 205 | SG | Georgia | 25

Many might not be very familiar with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. He quietly won the SEC MVP Award and averaged nearly 20 points a game and 7 rebounds. He could really rise up the charts at the last minute similar to how Dion Waiters did last year. The main reason why he hasn't been heard of very much is the fact that he played on one of the worst teams in the SEC that went 15-15. KCP has a very rare ability to score I find him being a great fit for whoever lands him.
Kelly Olynyk

  11. *Philadelphia | Kelly Olynyk | 7-0 | 234 | C | Gonzaga | 27

After coming off the bench for the Zags his Freshmen and Sophomore seasons, Olynyk made the decision to redshirt his third year just to get in shape and develop his game without taking action. That redshirt year surprisingly helped him game like a whole lot more than anybody would have ever expected. Olynyk even lead Gonzaga to be the #1 ranked team in the nation at the end of the regular season. The part of Olynyk's game that impresses me the most is his footwork. The way he moves around the court for a 7 footer and he has the best post game in this draft in my opinion. Olynyk might end up being a late bloomer, not adjusting to the NBA level until after a year or so like Nikola Vucevic but I really see Olynyk becoming a solid player in the NBA.
Steven Adams

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

You know OKC is a very loaded team when even Jeremy Lamb, Perry Jones and Ronnie Brewer struggled to get playing time last year. So they don't necessarily have to draft somebody who could get minutes and right away contribute. Steven Adams is this year's version of Meyers Leonard to me. I wasn't very impressed by Adams' one year at Pitt where he averaged 7 points and 6 rebounds as he is still very raw. However Adams really has an NBA built body with his size and strength similar to Meyers Leonard. If OKC does pick Steven Adams, he can develop his game even more spending time in the D-League and get some minutes with the Thunder when one of their post guys is out.
Michael Carter-Williams

  13. *Boston | Michael Carter-Williams | 6-6 | 185 | PG | Syracuse | 26

With Michael Carter-Williams being a 6'6 PG that really attracts NBA Teams. MCW played as a reserve his Freshmen season and sat the bench in the NCAA Tournament. Going into his Sophomore year he proved everybody that he is not a tweener, he is a full time PG but the biggest concerns are his jumpshot not being good enough for the NBA and the fact that he is old for a Sophomore which I don't think will hurt his status. However Carter-Williams has an amazing ability to pass the ball and is the type of player who looks to get others involved before himself as he is a very unselfish player.
Dennis Schroder

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

Nobody really knew about Dennis Schroeder only a few months ago. Just from him accepting his invite to play in the Nike Hoop Summit really helped his stock a whole lot. His performance outplaying our top HS players showed that he would have been an impact playing at the college level. He really gets other players involved and his style of game really seems to fit the NBA. Mo Williams is really starting to wear out and they didn't have a great backup for Williams so they could count on Schroeder to right away start and amnesty Williams and use that money for more cap room.
Shabazz Muhammad

  15. Milwaukee | Shabazz Muhammad | 6-6 | 225 | SF | UCLA | 25

Just one year ago, Shabazz was the favorite by most to be the #1 draft pick of the 2013 NBA Draft due to his impact at the HS level. He then taught us all a lesson that you can never guarantee a HS player to be a Top 5 pick in the next year's draft. Not saying to believe the same thing could happen to Andrew Wiggins but you will never know until they attempt to prove themselves on the court. Once Muhammad arrived on campus, he did have success during his one year at UCLA being named 1st team all Pac-12 and Co Pac-12 Freshmen of the Year but still nowhere near his expectations. I would say that part of it you could blame on Ben Howland and his offense but more than half of his shots would be mid range jumpers. From watching him play in HS I saw that he did have an ability to attack the basket but he never showed it at UCLA as the MIchael Kidd-Gilchrist comparisons really began to disappear. There's a chance Shabazz could prove us all wrong and be successful but he really turned out to be nothing like the Shabazz we all expected. Another thing that could potentially hurt his draft stock is his characteristics off the court. The NCAA investigated his eligibility after believing he received benefits in HS and then the whole story of his age being false. Where it turned out to be he was a year older than he was always listed.
Mason Plumlee

  16. *Atlanta | Mason Plumlee | 6-11 | 238 | PF | Duke | 28

Mason Plumlee has great athleticism for his size. Plumlee staying for his senior year really helped his draft stock. Many believe his game will not translate well to the NBA despite his athleticism. Plumlee is definitely worth taking a shot at in the middle of the first round or maybe even as a late lotto pick. With Plumlee being 23 years old which is considered old for a rookie now a days also questions his stock. Boston is believed to be looking for another big man if Carter-Williams and Schroeder are taken before 16 with KG only getting older and the health issues of Sullinger.
Giannis Adetokoubo

  17. Atlanta | Giannis Adetokoubo | 6-10 | 205 | SF | Greece | 23

Now Giannis is definitely the most questionable draft pick in this draft. The main reason why is because of the level of competition he played in which is supposedly similar to playing in an even lower competition than going against Northeast and Missouri Valley schools. Another question mark is his potential, with him being born in December of 1994, that makes him eligible to declare for this draft by the skin on teeth. If he would have played prep school ball in the states, he would have been a HS Senior this last season. But if he stays in the draft after the last minute for International Players to pull out, he will be the youngest player drafted since the NBA changed the age limit to 19 the year of the draft. Not expected to play in the NBA right away and stay in Europe to develop his game so there really is no predicted range for where he could go in this draft whether it's the late lotto to the second round.
Lucas Nogueira

  18. *Dallas | Lucas Nogueira | 7-0 | 220 | PF/C | Brazil | 25

Was originally going to be a member of the 2011 Draft Class but had to pull out at the last minute due to buyout issues with his club in Spain. As he barely received minutes for a lower division Europeon Team, he didn't declare last year knowing he had a good chance of going undrafted. This year he raised his stock back up where he should go somewhere from the late first to early second. The biggest question about Nogueira is his body size in the NBA, with him being long and skinny will he just get pushed around by the NBA bigs?
Sergey Karasev

  19. *Cleveland | Sergey Karasev | 6-7 | 197 | SG/SF | Russia | 24

Sergey Karasev has already played at a high level of competition in the Euro League and he even participated in the 2012 London Olympics representing his home country of Russia. He's a slashing wing player with good on ball defense. Played impressive in the 2013 NIke Hoop Summit.
Rudy Gobert

  20. Chicago | Rudy Gobert | 7-2 | 238 | C | France | 25

Rudy Gobert could go anywhere from the #12 to OKC to the late first round. From what I've seen from Gobert as far as highlights, he is not the most athletic big man but has unbelievable size for his position and even recorded the biggest wingspan in the history of the NBA Draft Combine. This 7'2 Center should be a solid backup at the least wherever he goes especially with the limited number of Centers now a days.
Jeff Withey

  21. *Minnesota | Jeff Withey | 7-0 | 222 | C | Kansas | 28

Now a days you can say it's rare when a player actually raises his draft stock by playing in their 5th year of eligibility. Jeff Withey is definitely best known for the way he protects the rim on defense. He also fights very aggressively on defense and can score when he gets the ball fed to him. Committing to Kansas had him riding the bench his first two years having to play behind a number of future NBA players such as Thomas Robinson, The Morris Brothers and Cole Aldrich. It wasn't until his Redshirt Junior Year where he finally got to show his talents where he had a very successful last two years at Kansas. With a very good chance of losing both Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap to free agency, Jeff Withey would be a great big man to come off the bench playing behind Enes Kanter and Derrick Favors.
Gorgui Dieng

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

Gorgui Dieng would be an excellent backup for Brook Lopez in Brooklyn. He may be a little limited on offense but he proved that he can be a great player to defend the rim at the NBA level. Didn't start playing basketball until his mid teenage years so he is a little new to the game but that's just an advantage of being 7 feet tall.
Allen Crabbe

  23. Indiana | Allen Crabbe | 6-6 | 197 | SG | California | 26

Allen Crabbe is arguably the best shooter out of all prospects in this draft. A true spot up shooter and could bail your team out at the end of the game by running screens and plays for Crabbe. One big question about his game is his ability to shoot off a dribble and if he can only be a player to feed the ball to for range. If Indiana gets rid of Granger which could very well happen, Crabbe would be a way better backup for Lance Stephenson than Orlando Johnson.
Shane Larkin

  24. New York | Shane Larkin | 5-11 | 171 | PG | Miami | 25

The New York Knicks are once again on the look for another PG which many thought would have ended during the "Linsanity" time period. Raymond Felton could probably start in the NBA for a few more good years, with the retirement of Jason Kidd and with Prigoni's future with the Knicks remaining unkown, Larkin would be a good backup PG to start off with for the Knicks. With them more likely to take a PG over a backup big man, this pick comes down to Shane Larkin, Myck Kabongo, Nate Wolters and Erick Green. I'd go with Shane Larkin despite his potential rate. The son of Baseball Hall of Famer Barry Larkin, came out of nowhere this past year where he became the ACC MVP and led Miami to win the ACC title. For him to be the backup he doesn't need to do a whole lot right away.
Livio Jean-Charles

  25. LA Clippers | Livio Jean-Charles | 6-9 | 217 | SF/PF | France | 24

Livio Jean-Charles made a name for himself in this year's Nike Hoop Summit where him, Andrew Wiggins and Dennis Schroeder helped the World Team to Defeat Team USA. Jean-Charles' 27 points led all players in the game. He showed in that game that he has the talent to potentially be drafted in the first round. The one thing that could prevent him from being picked there is the fact that his stats in Europe were not very impressive.
Tim Hardaway Jr

  26. *Oklahoma Cty | Tim Hardaway Jr | 6-6 | 200 | SG | Michigan | 26

Minnesota has been needing a true SG after losing Brandon Roy and Hardaway could compete for the starting job with Alexy Sheved. Unlike his father, Hardaway is a SG with great size for his position along with his athleticism. Had a very big role for the Michigan Wolverines who made the National Championship this last year and he should be quite something at the NBA level.
Glen Rice Jr.

  27. Denver | Glen Rice Jr. | 6-6 | 211 | SG | USA | 27

If the son of the former NBA All Star gets drafted in the first round, this will be history in the making to become the first player to be drafted out of the D-League in the 1st Round. Glen Rice Jr. was kicked off of Georgia Tech after his Junior season. Instead of sitting out a year to transfer to another school, he made the decision to go pro by putting his name into the D-League draft last fall. As Rice received limited playing time during the first half of last season, he stepped up as his stats skyrocketed up. He then averaged 25 points in the D-League playoffs where he led the Rio Grande Vipers to win the D-League Championship. The D-League is a way higher level of competition than the SEC, ACC or Big East. Rice put up those stats playing against players already in or have been in the NBA and former All Conference players so he no matter what has the talent to be drafted in the 1st round. The biggest concern is if teams are worried about his disciplinary issues from the past where he had been arrested for gun charges and when he was kicked off of Georgia Tech's team.
Alex Abrines

  28. San Antonio | Alex Abrines | 6-6 | 190 | SG | Spain | 24

The Spanish product has impressed American scouts with him playing for Euro Powerhouse FC Barcelona and he even played against the Dallas Mavericks last preseason. With San Antonio pretty loaded in depth and with the fact that Poppovich likes to draft foreign players and stash them overseas before the come to the NBA, Abrines sounds like that type of candidate for the Spurs.
Tony Snell

  29. *Phoenix | Tony Snell | 6-7 | 198 | SG/SF | New Mexico | 26

Led New Mexico to the MWC championship. This high school teammate of Kawhi Leonard seems to fit NBA standards well with his defensive aggressiveness and has been rising up the draft charts recently. Also a great defender with a huge work ethic, Snell would be a great SF to come off the bench for OKC whether Durant needs a breather of if he moves to the PF.
CJ Leslie

  30. *Golden St. | CJ Leslie | 6-9 | 209 | SF/PF | NC State | 26

CJ Leslie has some monster talent but not enough talent for him to be a lottery pick. Should go anywhere between the Mid 1st Round to the Early 2nd. Even in a projected below average draft class, somebody's gonna have to slide to the 2nd round right? But CJ Leslie going 30th to Phoenix sounds like a great fit for the Suns with Michael Beasley's status with the Suns being questionable right now and the fact that the Suns are one of the biggest hurting teams in depth in the NBA right now.
Myck Kabongo

  31. *Cleveland | Myck Kabongo | 6-2 | 180 | PG | Texas | 26

Myck Kabongo was quietly forced out of Texas after he was suspended for most of last season due to the investigation of the benefits he received. Last year he could have been drafted even higher in a better draft class which he probably would have done if he knew that he would have been suspended for most of last year. But him landing in Cleveland would make him a great backup PG for Kyrie Irving who does seem to get injured a little often and he would be playing with his great friend and fellow Canadian, Tristan Thompson.
Nate Wolters

  32. *Oklahoma Cty | Nate Wolters | 6-5 | 196 | PG | South Dakota St. | 27

Nate Wolters wasn't exposed as much as if he would of if he had played at a bigger school since he played at South Dakota St. But from what I've seen this guy knows the fundamentals to the game of basketball. Like I mentioned in OKC's 12th pick, OKC is the probably the biggest team in depth out of all NBA Teams but many weren't very satisfied with Reggie Jackson after Russell Westbrook's injury. If Westbrook is still going to miss some of next season as well, I don't see why not to use this pick on another PG and even when Westbrook returns, Wolters can always spend some time in the D-League.
DeShaun Thomas

  33. Cleveland | DeShaun Thomas | 6-6 | 220 | SF/PF | Ohio State | 26

Cleveland has been hurting at the SF position ever since LeBron left and murdered that franchise in 2010. DeShaun Thomas led a great Ohio State team in scoring and might be a tweener but he would be a good fit for the SF just for right now.
Jamaal Franklin

  34. *Houston | Jamaal Franklin | 6-5 | 191 | SG/SF | San Diego St. | 26

Jamaal Franklin has really come a long ways from his redshirt freshmen season at SDSU. He has great length for a wing positioned player but it is still a question of how his can came translate to the NBA. Houston could for sure use a backup SG to play behind Harden so this pick is for sure worthy of pick to take in the early second round.
Erick Green

  35. *Philadelphia | Erick Green | 6-3 | 180 | PG/SG | Virginia Tech | 27

Erick Green is slowly starting to make a name for himself . His 25 points per game will get him drafted somewhere in the first half of the second round.
Archie Goodwin

  36. Sacramento | Archie Goodwin | 6-5 | 189 | SG | Kentucky | 23

Last year was a very disappointing season for John Calipari and the Kentucky Wildcats. Archie Goodwin was their leading scorer with 14 points. Goodwin has proved that he is an explosive SG who can attack the basket. But the biggest concern is how he can get too out of control with the ball and could give you an easy turnover very frequently. He even struggles to shoot from the outside. He probably would have rather stayed at Kentucky to develop his game more but he was forced out by the Harrison Twins and James Young coming in that his stock would probably be even lower than it already is right now if he would have stayed. But keep in mind that he is the youngest college player in this draft and he doesn't turn 19 until August.
Tony Mitchell

  37. Detroit | Tony Mitchell | 6-9 | 236 | SF/PF | North Texas | 26

After not being eligible to play at Missouri where he originally committed to play, Mitchell chose to play at North Texas. He is a bit of a tweener between the SF and PF positions but you can't turn down his monster level athleticism. Playing at a very average level of competition, his stats weren't too outstanding especially for a former highly ranked HS recruit playing at a MVC school.
Ricardo Ledo

  38. *Milwaukee | Ricardo Ledo | 6-6 | 197 | SG | Providence | 25

Ricardo Ledo was ruled academically ineligible last year at Providence. Instead of staying another year attempting to be eligible then, he made the decision to go pro. This guy does have talent hands down but he still didn't destroy HS Basketball as a 19 year old Senior. He could have potentially faced the possibility of failing to make grades again so he just wanted to go pro already despite getting a guaranteed contract if he would have stayed.
Pierre Jackson

  39. *Portland | Pierre Jackson | 5-10 | 176 | PG | Baylor | 26

Just because I have Pierre Jackson as the 39th pick of the draft does not mean I rank him as the 39th best player in this draft. Pierre Jackson is one of the most underrated prospects in this draft. Him being 5'9 has always hurt him throughout his career which is why he started his career playing at a JC. This former JUCO Player of the Year averaged 19 points and 7 assists last year. One player who I like to compare Jackson to is Isaiah Thomas on the Sacramento Kings. He'll have to put in a lot of hard work to be similar to Isaiah. With the Blazers drafting him and Eric Maynor being a free agent, Jackson would be a great backup for Damian Lillard.
Mike Muscala

  40. Portland | Mike Muscala | 6-11 | 230 | PF/C | Bucknell | 26

Mike Muscala has a very polished offensive game. Even has a great outside shot for a 7 footer despite that he had a 25 3 pt percentage from outside last year. Portland has a solid starting 5 and with JJ Hickson likely leaving and the rumors of Aldridge being traded, Portland could for sure add another big man to their low depth roster.
Reggie Bullock

  41. *Memphis | Reggie Bullock | 6-7 | 200 | SG/SF | North Carolina | 27

It was widely rumored that the reason why Bullock decided to forgo his final year of eligibility was so he wouldn't have had to come off the bench if Andrew Wiggins would have picked UNC. Since Wiggins announced his decision after the deadline for college players to declare, Bullock left not knowing that he could have stayed another year and still started, maybe he wouldn't have left. Bullock was highly touted coming out of high school and didn't end up being spectacular at UNC. Memphis looks like a team who could take a chance on Bullock.
Lorenzo Brown

  42. *New Orleans | Lorenzo Brown | 6-5 | 189 | PG/SG | NC State | 27

This NC State product averaged 12 points and 7 assists last year. Could fight for a backup spot in the league and probably even time in the D-League which is not a bad thing.
BJ Young

  43. *Dallas | BJ Young | 6-3 | 179 | SG | Arkansas | 25

BJ Young has some great talent for a SG but the one thing that really questions his NBA Potential is that he is only 6'3 and that he probably does not have the ability to play the point in the NBA if he couldn't at Arkansas.
Isaiah Canaan

  44. *Atlanta | Isaiah Canaan | 6-0 | 190 | PG | Murray St. | 27

Isaiah Canaan led Murray St to be the last undefeated team in the 2011-2012 season. This may not be a very powerful PG class but there are definitely quite a few 2nd round steals who you can pick up.
Bojan Dubljevic

  45. *Portland | Bojan Dubljevic | 6-9 | 235 | PF/C | Montenegro | 26

One of the highest ranked International Prospects born in 1991 which makes him automatically eligible for this draft. For a team needing to save some salary cap it would be great to stash Dubljevic overseas for a few years or so before bringing him to the states.
Adonis Thomas

  46. Utah | Adonis Thomas | 6-6 | 232 | SF | Memphis | 25

Two years ago, Adonis Thomas was being projected to be a lottery pick for the 2012 NBA Draft. This former Top 10 ranked HS school player never went anywhere near his expectations his two years at Memphis. This is one positive reason for why the NBA got rid of the straight from HS rule to prevent teams from drafting busts. He mainly left so he wouldn't have to risk losing his starting job to 2 of Memphis' incoming recruits and Shaq Goodwin so he wanted to leave before it would too late for him to ever be drafted. Adonis Thomas is only 20 years old so that somewhat helps your stock now a days right?
Elias Harris

  47. *Denver | Elias Harris | 6-7 | 240 | SF/PF | Gonzaga | 28

Prior to his freshmen season with the Zags, he was pretty overrated being projected to be a lottery pick in 2010. As one of the older players in this draft he can potentially contribute right away off the bench for an NBA roster. Elias Harris has already played for Germany's National Team along with Dirk Nowitzki. He was a very important player for the #1 ranked Zags at the end of last year and he is a very hard worker and over achiever so he deserves to be drafted somewhere.
Peyton Siva

  48. LA Lakers | Peyton Siva | 6-1 | 181 | PG | Louisville | 27

Despite his successful 4 years at Louisville and that he led the Cards to win the National Title in April, Peyton Siva does not have a lot of pro potential. But at the same time he's just one of those guys you would just love to see get drafted. He's a great team player and leader. The infamous story of him talking his Dad out of committing suicide and the story of him growing up gives us a reason to want to see him in the league for at least a few years if he can make it.
Brandon Paul

  49. Chicago | Brandon Paul | 6-4 | 200 | SG | Illinois | 27

Led Illinois to win the Maui Invitational. This four year player who averaged over 16 points last year could be a little something in the league.
Zeke Marshall

  50. *Miami | Zeke Marshall | 7-0 | 235 | C | Akron | 27

There are not a lot of great options for C's in the second round for this year's draft but Zeke Marshall had a successful 4 years at Akron so he should go to some team who could use another C to add to their roster.
Ray McCallum

  51. *Orlando | Ray McCallum | 6-1 | 190 | PG | Detroit | 27

Ray McCallum a 2010 McDonald's All American turned down offers from some pretty big schools just to play for his Dad, the head coach at Detroit. He had to sacrifice a lot including his pro potential just to be coached by his Dad.
Nemanja Nedovic

  52. *Minnesota | Nemanja Nedovic | 6-3 | 190 | PG/SG | Serbia | 27

Great shooter, could come to the states at some point in his career and automatically eligible after turning 22 this year.
Ryan Kelly

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

Ryan Kelly was one of Duke's better players after all of their championship run players graduated. He is not very athletic at all but he is a great face up player who even has an outside shot. The MVP of the 2011 Maui Invitational that beat Kansas who later on the runner up of that upcoming NCAA Tournament.
Kenny Kadji

  54. *Philadelphia | Kenny Kadji | 6-10 | 242 | PF/C | Miami | 30

Kenny Kadji is the oldest player who at least has a chance of getting drafted. Him coming from Africa to play prep school ball in the states really helped him develop into becoming a better player. After him riding the bench at Florida made him transfer to Miami where he proved himself that he can play the game.
Andre Roberson

  55. Memphis | Andre Roberson | 6-7 | 206 | SF/PF | Colorado | 26

Roberson is not a very good scorer but he has one of the better defensive games in this draft.
Dejan Musli

  56. *Detroit | Dejan Musli | 7-0 | 265 | C | Serbia | 27

One of the top ranked International Centers for quite a few years. Him being born in 1991 automatically makes him eligible for the upcoming draft.
Raul Neto

  57. *Phoenix | Raul Neto | 6-2 | 179 | PG | Brazil | 26

As a 21 year old, he has been playing for Brazil's senior national team for three years now and already has good experience playing with the pros. Has a good shot of being drafted somewhere.
Augusto Lima

  58. San Antonio | Augusto Lima | 6-10 | 234 | PF | Brazil | 26

Lima has experience playing on Brazil's National Team with Nene, Varajao and Barbosa and is also automatically eligible being born in 1991.
Colton Iverson

  59. *Minnesota | Colton Iverson | 7-0 | 263 | PF/C | Colorado St. | 28

Minnesota would draft the somewhat local guy, Colton Iverson the South Dakota native. Iverson was a great player at Colorado State after transferring there from Minnesota. Great shot blocker and might not be candidate to have a longer than a few year NBA career but he could contribute off the bench a little for a team like the Timberwolves.
Seth Curry

  60. *Memphis | Seth Curry | 6-2 | 180 | PG/SG | Duke | 27

The younger brother of Stephen Curry is another guy you would just want to see drafted somewhere. In the 2008-2009 season he led all freshmen in scoring at Liberty then transferred to Duke. Had a good career at Duke but never reached his expectations. He can shoot just like his father and his brother but doesn't quite have the athleticism for the NBA.
