Player | Ht | Wt | Pos | Team | Age

Alex Len

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

Len going to cleveland could be one big smoke screen, but in all fairness, with no clear cut indication on who the best prospect is, Len could make the most sense since he has the upside of someone to be considered taken 1st over-all, something Porter has been criticized of, and he fits a positional need, starting center, something Noel and McLemore cant be said about.
Nerlens Noel

  2. *Orlando | Nerlens Noel | 6-11 | 206 | PF/C | Kentucky | 24

Orlando i believe can get the player they wanted to draft if they won the lotto in Noel. if nerlens recovers well and leaves his injury history in the past, he could form an ideal pair next to Vucevic.
Otto Porter

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

with Len and Noel off the board, this pick is pretty much the most obvious one for the entire draft. Benett was rumored to be considered, but with him gaining 20 pounds and his injury history, it does not warrant enough reason to take him over the local product who fits the current roster as well as the direction of wanting to contribute right away.
Victor Oladipo

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

This seems like a Jordan pick at first, but in all honesty, i have this projected as a trade to the timberwolves. minny's desire for oladipo has been well documented and could be the "doug christie" in adelman's starting line-up with timberwolves. he may need to continue on working on his ball handling, but victor's work ethic displays that he would be able to improve upon it to a point where it would be acceptable.
Ben McLemore

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

McLemore drops more than what most people would think, but i believe its his lack of a superstar attitude could be merited to his unimpresive interviews and slide on draft night. regardless though, he ends up in maybe the best place for him in phoenix where they have a major need of shooting guards and a new head coach who was a former SG himself who can provide good guidance. i believe Benett is the only real other target at this point for the suns, but McLemore is too good to pass up.
Trey Burke

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

nobody has launched his stock more in the tourney than Burke. the 6 foot point guard who could not get a 1st round promise last year. The national player of the year gets credited as the first Pelican to be drafted. he provides an interesting option off the bench since he can end up relieving either starting guard with his ability to score and distribute. one could argue that he would be redundant to Austin Rivers, but Austin had a very dissapointing rookie season and has not given any indication that he should be a long term piece to new orleans.
Shabazz Muhammad

  7. *Sacramento | Shabazz Muhammad | 6-6 | 225 | SF | UCLA | 25

with how much Bazz's value has been ran through the mud during the draft process, people would be calling this a reach. and although this pick makes more sense with the old management, i think the new ones are at the very least intrigued by Bazz's scoring potential and californian roots. most would say that he wouldnt fit in next Cousins, without even mentioning Tyreke or Marcus. but im not so sure the new management is high on evans and drafting muhammad could be the first indicator that they might not bring him back. i mean, why else would they work him out a second time.
Michael Carter-Williams

  8. Detroit | Michael Carter-Williams | 6-6 | 185 | PG | Syracuse | 26

with MCW rumors of his draft stock rising with private work-outs, as well as his ideal size and better than advertised athleticism, the pistons could make a surprise reach pick with MCW more than adding a more depth with their front court with either Zeller or Bennett.
Cody Zeller

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

Cody may have never lived up to the lofty expectations from him this past season in Indiana, but its not like he had a misserable year also. i feel he is charlote's true target in the draft and why they would be happy to trade down to minny's slot. i dont think he has alpha male mentality to be a true star in the league, but his offensive arsenal as well as ability to crash the boards would make a good fit next to Biyombo. Charlote needs some post scorers who can put the ball in the hoop either through a face up or with his back to the basket.
Anthony Bennett

  10. *Portland | Anthony Bennett | 6-7 | 240 | SF/PF | UNLV | 25

I think this is preety much the bottom for Bennett and will not drop any lower. you can credit the added weight as well as his injury history as the reason for the draft night slide. portland could either use him as their back-up 4, someone theyve been looking for since Channing Frye was regarded better than David Lee, or more realistically, could deal him to Phoenix for Marcin Gortat and either of the Morris twins. the suns need some swagger in this team and young talent with star potential, something they;; get from this draft if they come away with both Ben and Anthony
CJ McCollum

  11. *Philadelphia | CJ McCollum | 6-3 | 197 | PG/SG | Lehigh | 26

CJ's above par athletic numbers help boost his stock. i think he could settle into Louis Williams role as soon as he becomes a sixer. something that wasnt addressed successfully after the former 2nd round stud signed with his hometown hawks. CJ can play next to jrue if they are up against an undersized back-court or play next to Evan who will be handling the ball more, allowing CJ into his natural role of off-guard.
Steven Adams

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

The thunder dont really need any player at this point. their rotation is preety much set and if anything, will look at their future needs to see who they will take. i have them taking Steven Adams as a project big man who has great size and mobility, but simply needs experience and technical skills. if he turns into a boom more than a bust, Adams could end up taking Perkins' starting spot when kendrick hits free agency and becomes too expensive.
Dennis Schroder

  13. *Boston | Dennis Schroder | 6-2 | 168 | PG | Germany | 24

Schroeder has reportedly shut down work-outs and pulled out of the combine leading to believe that he does have a lotto promise already in his pocket. a lot has still got to be learned from dennis, and i do believe that he'll need a couple of seasons to adjust to the NBA's level before he becomes a significant contributer in the league. however, he does have very good physical tools that are essential for a top point guard in the league. although initially believing it was the jazz who gave dennis the lotto promise, further reflection lead me to believe it may have been dallas. my reasons for thinking so was that, A) schroeder is rumored to have an attitude problem of being a good teammate, something the Jazz organization frown upon, B) Dallas is willing to draft a player and stash him over-seas in order to save money for the cap, and C) the mavericks' history of drafting young lightning quick point guards with great length and size.
Shane Larkin

  14. *Minnesota | Shane Larkin | 5-11 | 171 | PG | Miami | 25

everybody knows that the Jazz need a point guard and making that their prime target in the draft. news came out that larkin had a very good work-out with the jazz and could provide to be a staple in their rotation, weather their long term solution as a starter or back-up.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope

  15. Milwaukee | Kentavious Caldwell-Pope | 6-6 | 205 | SG | Georgia | 25

the bucks will most likely loose both monta ellis and jj redick to free agency. it is only wise for them to at least take the best shooting guard prospect with their first round pick so that they may be able to have at least one player of that position on the roster.
Mason Plumlee

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

the celtics get to address their big man depth issues with their 1st round pick. mason plumlee comes in as an NBA ready big man who can see minutes right away behind KG. although he is not the shot blocker or scorer Garnet is,even in his advanced age, plumlee brings with him high energy with good athleticism for a big man. and although swatting shots is not his specialty, he has good technique in guarding the post where his agility and strength is utilized well. he'll have to work on his mid-range jumper to get make the most out of his role with celtics, but is already a strong finisher in the pick and roll.
Lucas Nogueira

  17. Atlanta | Lucas Nogueira | 7-0 | 220 | PF/C | Brazil | 25

The Hawks i believe will use their first pick to get a young big man who can develop into their starting center next to Al Horford. with Gobert dissapointing in private work-outs, as well as Lucas stock spike with the Euro Camp, Nogueira seems to be the most logical pick.
Sergey Karasev

  18. *Dallas | Sergey Karasev | 6-7 | 197 | SG/SF | Russia | 24

i originally wanted giannis here, but with atlanta's pattern in last year's off-season of targeting shooters, i think they might prefer Sergey who might not have as big of an upside, but also a much shallower basement as well, already performing well in top competition in europe, something adetokoubo cant say.
Giannis Adetokoubo

  19. *Cleveland | Giannis Adetokoubo | 6-10 | 205 | SF | Greece | 23

the cavs use their second first rounder to nab that small forward they're looking for. Giannis might not be nearly as polished as Porter, but he offers significant more potential. his ball handling and length makes him very intriguing and can end up being a top 10 player in this draft in 5 years.
Jeff Withey

  20. Chicago | Jeff Withey | 7-0 | 222 | C | Kansas | 28

This might be the biggest reach in my mock, but I really like the fit of Jeff for Chicago. The bulls need a long term replacement for Asik's role on the team and i believe Withey is the guy who could do it. Grab rebounds, move your feet on D, rotate, have soft hands to catch dump offs and finish near the basket.
Nate Wolters

  21. *Minnesota | Nate Wolters | 6-5 | 196 | PG | South Dakota St. | 27

I know I already have the jazz taking a point with their lotto pick, but like i said earlier, shane could end up as their long term back-up only. in any case, i believe wolters would be a good fit for the jazz in the short and long term. a big point guard who offers better size than athletic abilities, Nate knows how to use his attributes to the best of capabilities. and if Larkins proves that he's worthy of being the team's starter, nate can play a role very simillar to what randy foye did this past season.
Gorgui Dieng

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

Fresh of a national championship, Dieng enters the draft with all the benefits of the intangibles being shown of a winner. defensive minded, light on his feet, understand team concept and makes good decisions on the court. the nets have a decent bigman rotation with lopez-evans-blatche, but bltache is a free agent and they dont have any other big with center size.
Tony Mitchell

  23. Indiana | Tony Mitchell | 6-9 | 236 | SF/PF | North Texas | 26

one could say that nobody damaged their draft stock more than Tony Mitchell this past season. some say that in any other draft, mitchell could very will slide into the second round, and he still might. back-ground checks will factor in heavily where he will be taken, weather thats late 1st round, early 2nd or maybe even mid 1st. if his attitude and body language on the court are put into question, we can expect him to be the next Chris Taft. however, if they find out that this past season was a fluke season and could be credited more to the bad coaching change in North Texas than it was to Tony himself, then he can still be a promising prospect having an NBA ready body and posses good athletic gifts. he gave really good numbers in the combine, but gms should already have known that about him. what he really needs is a good mentor to help work on and develop his skill-set and i believe David West could be one of the better ones out there to become one.
Rudy Gobert

  24. New York | Rudy Gobert | 7-2 | 238 | C | France | 25

The hawks would look to add a possible long term solution at the center spot since they want to move Horford at PF full time. Gobert has highest upside at this point in the draft and could develop as a good defensive post player to complement Horford's offensive strength.
Archie Goodwin

  25. LA Clippers | Archie Goodwin | 6-5 | 189 | SG | Kentucky | 23

The clipps seem to have a very deep bench but are full of vets. their starting front court is still young and have a lot of years ahead of themselves but their wingmen could be injected with some youth. thats where goodwin fits in. he wont be getting minutes any time soon, but with jamaal crawford and chris paul for mentors, goodwin can take his talent and slashing ability to a whole another level.
Kelly Olynyk

  26. *Oklahoma Cty | Kelly Olynyk | 7-0 | 234 | C | Gonzaga | 27

The timberwolves are fortunate to have kelly fall this far, but it could be beneficial for both parties. minny enters the off-season with their starting center as an unrestricted free agent. getting olynyk here allows them to have another center on the roster and fits adelman's tendency to go towards the princeton offense that utilizes bigs in the high post. a spot kelly is quiet comfortable with.
Lorenzo Brown

  27. Denver | Lorenzo Brown | 6-5 | 189 | PG/SG | NC State | 27

Lorenzo really turned himself into a full-time ball distributer this past season and show potential on being one on the next level while having great height at the PG department. he serves as Denver's 3rd string PG and potential replacement back-up if Andre Miller decides to hang em up by the time Brown's rookie deal is done.
Livio Jean-Charles

  28. San Antonio | Livio Jean-Charles | 6-9 | 217 | SF/PF | France | 24

LJC had a good game against the americans in the Hoop Summit, but is still very much of a project to me. standing 6'9" but only weighing 210 says that this kid needs to spend a ton of time at the weight room. however, at 19 years of age only, he has good mobility and speed at for the PF position. he kind of reminds me of Amir Johnson and if he could carve out a niche for going after rebounds on both ends with a nice feathery touch, then the spurs could have another great steal so late in the first round, again.
Myck Kabongo

  29. *Phoenix | Myck Kabongo | 6-2 | 180 | PG | Texas | 26

The Thunder's need for a facilitator was magnified when westbrook went down in the play-offs and they plugged in reggie jackson to take his minutes. jackson is a good defender and scorer, but isnt a natural play maker like russel. when you have a guy who isnt as talented as westbrook taking the same number of shots, its going to be a problem. although myck will be the 3rd pg on the depth chart, he will bring something the two other PG's above does not, natural play-making ability.
Jamaal Franklin

  30. *Golden St. | Jamaal Franklin | 6-5 | 191 | SG/SF | San Diego St. | 27

Jamaal has done a lot for San Diego being their main man and often creating offense for himself and his team. i believe he has the potential to be more of a passing shooting guard in the NBA which is a fit im looking for to pair up with Dragic if im the suns. With goran being a scoring point, a passing 2 will help the other scorers get their touches and shots they want.
Allen Crabbe

  31. *Cleveland | Allen Crabbe | 6-6 | 197 | SG | California | 26

The cavs having addressed their big man and SF issues, can use their first pick in the second to add some ready to contribute depth in the wings. allen crabbe may not be a sexy name to have, but the guy is an ideal role player. he has good length, decent athleticism and a very nice outside stroke. he may not be as naturally talented as CJ Miles, but could be the more consistent player of the two.
Trevor Mbakwe

  32. *Oklahoma Cty | Trevor Mbakwe | 6-8 | 236 | PF/C | Minnesota | 29

best case scenario, mbakwe turns into keneth faired and the thunder get a long-term replacement for nick collison's role on the team. he could not get a better mentor for what it takes to be part of an important player on a championship caliber team, even if youre not a starter. worst case scenario is that they end up with a cheap 3rd string power forward in the roster.
Erick Green

  33. Cleveland | Erick Green | 6-3 | 180 | PG/SG | Virginia Tech | 27

I would have preferred for the cavs to get a pass-first point guard to back-up irving, but Green is steal this late in this draft. he might not like his situation that much since he'll be playing behind their franchise player, but he could eventually play back-up minutes to both waiters and kyrie if their opponents are going small ball as well.
Glen Rice Jr.

  34. *Houston | Glen Rice Jr. | 6-6 | 211 | SG | USA | 27

Glen Rice Jr. has played very well for the rockets' d-league affiliate, leading the Rio Grande Vipers in scoring en route to the D-League championship over the Santa Cruz Warriors. This allowed the rockets staff to know his capabilities and potential, and i think it would be fitting that houston takes him first pick they have, having sort of a home coming.
Tony Snell

  35. *Philadelphia | Tony Snell | 6-7 | 198 | SG/SF | New Mexico | 26

Snell could easily find himself much higher on the actual draft board. from what ive read and heared from the combine, coaches love the kid and his attitude and abilities on catch and shoot situations. his skinny frame is really the only thing holding him back, but if he can show that it doesnt affect him much the way tayshaun prince did before, then he'll have a nice long career in the league. and with dorell wright and nick young as free agents, snell could carve out a simillar role in philly
Andre Roberson

  36. Sacramento | Andre Roberson | 6-7 | 206 | SF/PF | Colorado | 26

Roberson biggest asset to the Kings would be his ability to play off the ball. i can see that some of the things he brings to the table is similar to what james johnson does, but JJ is a free agent and apart from his initial production when he was first dealt to the kings, he hasnt done much to seperate and establish himself as a key member of the team.
Tim Hardaway Jr

  37. Detroit | Tim Hardaway Jr | 6-6 | 200 | SG | Michigan | 26

Tim Hardaway got all the benefits and baggage their long tourney run to the title game brought. yes he was one of the main options on the team that got to the finals, but he also dint shoot well through out the tourney. he took his fair share bad shots and missed several of good looks as well. he dint really stepped up in big games or big moments either. i really think he should have gone back to school for an extra year where could work on his ability to create offense for him and his teamates. be the leader of a team that has Mitch McGary and Glen Robinson III. bottom line, i think his tourney play exposed how unready he is for the NBA and at 21 years old, you would have expected more. Aran has him compared to Wesley Person due to his outside shot, i have him compared to CJ Miles due to his inconsistency
Isaiah Canaan

  38. *Milwaukee | Isaiah Canaan | 6-0 | 190 | PG | Murray St. | 27

The wizzards i believe need an upgrade at the back-up point guard position. nothing against AJ Price, but he strikes me more as a 3rd string point guard. Canaan may be older than most rookies, but he comes in the NBA ready to contribute right away because of it. his biggest weapon will be his jumper which will be important since the washington offense is mostly effective when they spread the floor with several shooters at a time, giving either Wall to penetrate or Nene to operate inside.
Mike Muscala

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

Muscala wont bring nearly as much athletisicm as other bigs in the NBA, but he does give a more refined skill set and could come in right away. being a very good rebounder on both ends of the floor helps his case and he has shown a good ability to hit free throws leading us to think its not far fetched for him to turn into a good pick and pop option.
Alex Abrines

  40. Portland | Alex Abrines | 6-6 | 190 | SG | Spain | 24

Abrines will remind others of Rudy Fernandez due to his ability to shoot the ball. and although abrines has smooth athletic ability, i dont think he jumps as fast or as high as rudy. he has better length though and that would help him compensate for the extra inch or two with his vert. abrines looks to be a long term prospect since he may not get to come over right away and needs to add much more muscle in order to take the pounding of the NBA. although blazer fans may not enter a simillar situation they had with rudy fernandez, his talent is worth the gamble for a mid second round pick
Dewayne Dedmon

  41. *Memphis | Dewayne Dedmon | 6-11 | 240 | C | USC | 28

Dedmon, despite his age is still preety much a project. i think he will have a Feb Melo like rookie season honestly. having said that, he does have a good frame and size and mobility for the center position. if he can somehow be like a Brendan Haywood type player by the time he's 25, then the Grizzlies would have done themselves justice getting a rotational center in the second round of a shallow draft. we all know that after the mid-season trade, coach hollins would have wanted more size, getting one in the second round gives them a low risk investment.
Kenny Kadji

  42. *New Orleans | Kenny Kadji | 6-10 | 242 | PF/C | Miami | 30

Kadji had a good season and has developed into a consistent pick and pop player, consistently displaying his jumper with hurricanes. you would expect a lot more rebounding from a guy of his size and height, but he did have a significant improvement in that department from last season tells us that he's not entirely uncoachable in the subject. his physical tools are there for him to excel next to howard, able to space out the block from the mid-range the same way David West does. his initial competition would be Miles Plumlee who i think he can end up surpassing in the depth chart.
BJ Young

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

BJ could have really benefitted from an extra year in college, but he will provide a good value pick in the second round for the bucks. its not like they will be that advert on utilising an undersized SG and could be a good prospect as a scoring lead guard. at the very least, i hope he gets a shot to show what he can do in a rebuilding bucks team the same way Arenas got his shot with the rebuilding warriors back then.
Zeke Marshall

  44. *Atlanta | Zeke Marshall | 7-0 | 235 | C | Akron | 27

The Mavericks like big men who are shot blockers and defensive minded and although marshall may not be the most athletic guy, he's able to block a lot of shots ranking him 4th in the NCAA level just behind Jeff Whitey.
Ray McCallum

  45. *Portland | Ray McCallum | 6-1 | 190 | PG | Detroit | 27

the blazers already have their back-up point guard in eric maynor who they traded for in the dead-line. he is however a free agent, and although its likely that he'll be back, it would only be wise to secure a 3rd point guard possible back-up in the second round if they have the opportunity to do so.
DeShaun Thomas

  46. Utah | DeShaun Thomas | 6-6 | 220 | SF/PF | Ohio State | 26

DeShaun Thomas can prove to be a a good scorer of the bench for the Jazz. he's undersized for his position, but he's been able to get buckets over longer and taller players at college. i know it'll be much harder to do it consistently in the NBA, but its not like he hasnt seen that type of coverage before. utah needs some reliable players in their bench to be productive, and it would be good to get a proven player in the second round instead of a prospect. just ask the warriors about draymond green. if thomas is able to give them a decent scoring spark, it would allow them to move hayward to the starting line-up.
CJ Leslie

  47. *Denver | CJ Leslie | 6-9 | 209 | SF/PF | NC State | 26

After three years of college basketball, Leslie still remains as a prospect. an intriguing prospect at that though. stats wise, he regressed in his junior season, but im sure he will get teams interested in him in the draft combine due to his measurements and athletic abilities. i think atlanta would be the type of team that would be willing to take a chance on him the same way they took a chance on Josh Smith who was really more athlete than player when they drafted him in the first round back then.
Ryan Kelly

  48. LA Lakers | Ryan Kelly | 6-11 | 230 | PF | Duke | 27

Ryan Kelly will really have to get his conditioning up in order to play for mike d'antoni's lakers. he does have the skill-set to play in that system which value stretch fours and spacing more than post presence and physicality.
Reggie Bullock

  49. Chicago | Reggie Bullock | 6-7 | 200 | SG/SF | North Carolina | 27

Bullock carved out a specialists role for the tar heals. in roy williams' system, he wasnt able to show how much ball handling ability he really has. he's a smooth athlete but not overly explosive. i see the bulls taking a chance on him and seeing weather he can take over Jimmy Butler's back-up duties since i feel JB deserves the starting 2 guard slot already.
Ricardo Ledo

  50. *Miami | Ricardo Ledo | 6-6 | 197 | SG | Providence | 25

Ricardo is an example of someone who had 1st round talent that wasnt on display in college, thus have a perception that he hasnt improved since high school despite getting older. he has some jamaal crawford in his game or marshoon brooks. expect him to at least be molded into a simillar role devin harris had this past season as a secondary ball handler whose more of a scorer than distributer.
Pierre Jackson

  51. *Orlando | Pierre Jackson | 5-10 | 176 | PG | Baylor | 26

Pierre Jackson is a very good basketball player that will have to battle against his lack of size and not being in a winning program last year. He's a scoring point guard who has good instincts and speed on the court. i think being in orlando will allow him an opportunity that wont be granted that much in other clubs. with jameer nelson's days in orlando numbered, i expect jackson to get his shot with this team later on the season when they "wont be tanking".
Bojan Dubljevic

  52. *Minnesota | Bojan Dubljevic | 6-9 | 235 | PF/C | Montenegro | 26

Bojan is your old school rep of a euro big. unathletic but has range on his jumper. the guy has good understanding of his abilities and doesnt try to do things he knows he is unable to. i think he would fit in well in minny playing under adelman or not.
Jackie Carmichael

  53. Indiana | Jackie Carmichael | 6-9 | 240 | PF | Illinois State | 28

honestly, i think this might be a bit too low for Carmichael. this senior forward has good size and height, posted good stats in critical big man categories such as rebounds and blocks while avoiding foul trouble despite lodging 30 MPG. in fact, i wouldnt be surprised if he goes much earlier to a team that wants a back-up pf who can contribute right away.
Solomon Hill

  54. *Philadelphia | Solomon Hill | 6-7 | 226 | SF | Arizona | 27

Hill doesnt really fill any of washington's needs. he's not the fastest or most athletic player, does not have an insanse wingspan or sick handles, he has a decent outside shot but far from deadly and wouldnt be mistaken for a pure shooter. He does however has a great professionalism and passion for the game. very hard worker who has shown excellent growth in his game since his freshman year. great approach to the game and the type of player you would have to love in your locker room. no, hill doesnt fill a need, especially with already 2 small forwards under contract for next season while stating their desire of bringing back Martell Webster. he does however fit in washington's movement of filling the roster with high character guys.
Adonis Thomas

  55. Memphis | Adonis Thomas | 6-6 | 232 | SF | Memphis | 25

Adonis is just not ready for the NBA. although he has shown flashes of being a good productive player, he has to expand his abilities in order to become a contributer in the league. he athleticism and length could let develop into a jason maxiell type, but he'll need to get nastier. he's still 20 years old though and could be worth a minimum two year deal to see how far he can develop.
Colton Iverson

  56. *Detroit | Colton Iverson | 7-0 | 263 | PF/C | Colorado St. | 28

colton iverson will at least get a legit shot at training camp of making the roster asa back-up big for a team that only features drummond and monroe as big men part of their core. and although iverson will never trick anyone as being a shot blocker, the team could use more bigs in their bench thats concentrated on grabbing rebounds more than shooting threes.
Seth Curry

  57. *Phoenix | Seth Curry | 6-2 | 180 | PG/SG | Duke | 27

a lot of people are saying that seth curry is not meant for the NBA game. they have their basis, i mean, he's not that athletic, fast, or have good point guard instincts. he's a dead eye shooter though and will help the suns in that department, who are third worst in the league. i believe he pairs up well next to phoenix's first round pick if they are able to nab jamaal franklin.
James Ennis

  58. San Antonio | James Ennis | 6-7 | 200 | SG/SF | Long Beach State | 27

Rodney Williams

  59. *Minnesota | Rodney Williams | 6-7 | 200 | SF | Minnesota | 26

williams still has a ways to go in developing his technical skills, but he does show good character and a willingness to put in the work. his shooting shows good elevation and follow through but it just doesnt go in that often. serving as a strict role player with the blazers could do wonders for his game. he offers a great combination of length and leaping ability and could be honed into a good defensive player. he could eventually carve a role as a defensive stopper on the wings for the wolves who dont really have at the moment.
Peyton Siva

  60. *Memphis | Peyton Siva | 6-1 | 181 | PG | Louisville | 27

Siva was a bipollar player for the national champs during their tourney run. he would at times carry the load for his team for stretches, and on others be the reason for their struggle. he has a nice burst of speed similar to patty mills that helps him get all the way to the cup. he has to work on his outside jumper though and to cut down on the turnovers. the best thing going for him however apart from being part of the national champs is that he seems to favor utilizing the pick and roll, something done a lot in the pros. with memphis having bayless as conley's back-up needing to take a bigger scoring role of the bench, it would be nice for them to have a more traditional point guard in their depth chart in case bayless is struggling and conley finds himself in foul trouble.
