Updated: 6/26/14 6:15 am

Player | Ht | Wt | Pos | Team | Age

Andrew Wiggins

  1. Cleveland | Andrew Wiggins | 6-8 | 200 | SF | Kansas | 23

The Bucks should take the top prospect, which means either Wiggins or Embiid. This works because Wiggins could fit better into a starting 5 of Knight-Wiggins-Antetokounpbo-Henson-Sanders. They have log jams in the front court no matter what. They could also go with Parker and make him the PF but Wiggins' upside is too high to pass on.
Jabari Parker

  2. Milwaukee | Jabari Parker | 6-9 | 240 | SF/PF | Duke | 23

They want Wiggins, and are willing to trade up but if they don't, I don't imagine they'll be too disappointed with Parker. He should become their top scorer right away.
Joel Embiid

  3. *Philadelphia | Joel Embiid | 7-0 | 250 | C | Kansas | 24

C's with two way potential are way too hard to find in comparison to a dynamic scorer on the wing. Embiid has a higher ceiling than Parker, and is maybe on par with Wiggins. Back looks good. The Cavs would love to replace Varejao with a starting C for their future.
Dante Exum

  4. Orlando | Dante Exum | 6-6 | 196 | PG/SG | Australia | 22

The Magic really need their PG of the future (Dipo is best as a SG for sure) and Exum is the best on the board. He's also a top talent who would be in the running for 1st overall in most other drafts. Would give the Magic a huge backcourt on defense.
Julius Randle

  5. Utah | Julius Randle | 6-9 | 250 | PF | Kentucky | 23

This might be the toughest pick to predict. The Jazz are set at PG and PF, and the 4 best players on the board are either PF or PG (Randle, Vonleh, Smart, Gordon). They could always take a PF and slide Favors to the 5, and just not resign Kanter (huge risk anyways). If they trade the pick, Randle could still easily go #5 to another team. I don't really like a back-court of Burke/Smart, and Randle has the highest potential as a scorer IMO of the 3 power forwards.
Noah Vonleh

  6. *Boston | Noah Vonleh | 6-9 | 247 | PF | Indiana | 22

Similar position to Utah, the players on the board might stunt the growth of the players they have (Sullinger/Olynyk). The Celtics could go with Smart, but if they don't trade Rondo they'll have a horrible shooting back-court. Vonleh would be the best option to pair with Sully since he's shown he can protect the rim a bit (which Sully doesn't), and both players have range to allow decent spacing.
Marcus Smart

  7. LA Lakers | Marcus Smart | 6-3 | 227 | PG | Oklahoma State | 24

BPA. Point guard of the future. Done. Might be tough enough to play with Kobe.
Aaron Gordon

  8. Sacramento | Aaron Gordon | 6-9 | 220 | PF | Arizona | 22

I think this is better than what the Kings expected after falling a spot in the lottery. It's not that they didn't think the could get Gordon before, but his stock has certainly shot up since he started workouts. Heard his shot has been looking nice, and the defensive effort and jaw-dropping athleticism would pair with Cousins' scoring ability quite well.
Doug McDermott

  9. *Charlotte | Doug McDermott | 6-7 | 220 | SF | Creighton | 26

Charlotte needs shooters. Badly. Enter McDermott - Likely the top shooter in the draft. Stauskas is up there as well, but I like McDermott's all-around offense and think he could play some PF in small line-ups (which would allow Jefferson to feast on single coverage in the paint). McDermott's stock should have risen after the combine (in my books it did anyways, 37'' vert).
Zach LaVine

  10. *Orlando | Zach LaVine | 6-6 | 180 | PG/SG | UCLA | 23

With Parker being a super safe pick, the 76ers can afford to swing for the fences. Realistically, do they want to start 3 rookies next year? Maybe, but I think they'd be better off taking a players who they can bring on slowly with huge upside. They can play wroten in the mean time, or stick with Anderson (at the 2), because lets be real, the 76ers don't expect to make the playoff next year, and are likely looking forward to the lottery again in 2015.
James Young

  11. *Chicago | James Young | 6-6 | 215 | SG | Kentucky | 22

I think this is too perfect for the Nuggets. The one position where they could upgrade their starter with relative ease is SG. They are also a team stuck in mediocrity so they could stand to swing for the fences because a) they're deep enough they it ultimately won't hurt them if they miss, and b) striking gold in the draft is one of 2 ways out of perpetual mediocrity (the other being a total blow-up and rebuild).
Dario Saric

  12. *Philadelphia | Dario Saric | 6-10 | 225 | SF/PF | Croatia | 24

After taking Exum, they have a strong starting 5 who are all young and can and will all get better. (Exum, Dipo, Harkless, Harris, Vucevic, plus Afflalo as a 6th). This means they probably feel a bit more comfortable about Saric possibly not coming over this year. Also, ge's a nice secondary distributor who could help feed all the young scorers on the team. His versatility (and that of Harris) allows a lot of line-up flexibility.
Rodney Hood

  13. *Minnesota | Rodney Hood | 6-8 | 208 | SF | Duke | 25

If the Wolves trade Kevin Love, then there's no telling what they might do with any of their picks. So I'll make this pick assuming they will keep Love for now. Hood gives them another shooter who has underrated athleticism. They also have Shabazz who could easily develop into a good player and has tons of potential, but they could really use the shooting, and it wouldn't hurt to have another solid wing since Kevin Martin is starting to get up there in age. If he's ready to play right away he could be a starter and fill a position of need.
Nik Stauskas

  14. *Phoenix | Nik Stauskas | 6-6 | 207 | SG | Michigan | 24

The Suns' picks will be tough to predict. At each position they have a young player who is improving, except for SF (but Green and Tucker are an OK offense/defense duo). That being said, they could really use another guard who can light it up from outside to create slashing lanes, and gives them the third member of a potentially potent 3 guard rotation. They'll also use him at the 3 in some small line-ups.
TJ Warren

  15. *Atlanta | TJ Warren | 6-8 | 220 | SF | NC State | 24

They really need a quality wing who can score inside/in the mid range to pair with Korver. Carroll was a nice place holder but this season he should be more of an energy guy off the bench. They're loaded with bigs (Horford, Millsap, Noguiera, Brand, Antic, Scott), and have a nice back-up PG with potential in Schroeder to learn from Teague. I'll be really surprised if they don't take a wing.
Gary Harris

  16. *Denver | Gary Harris | 6-4 | 205 | SG | Michigan St. | 23

Could easily get picked by the Suns or Hawks, but fits well with the Bulls (who will probably try to trade the picks in an attempt to land Anthony or Love). If they don't land one of those stars, I could see Harris sliding into a line-up of Rose-Harris-Butler-Gibson-Noah. Harris won't be a dynamic scorer but he should be able to turn into a 15ppg third option type of guy pretty soon. He plays D too.
Kyle Anderson

  17. *Boston | Kyle Anderson | 6-9 | 230 | SF | UCLA | 24

It's hard to slot Anderson into a spot here because who knows how teams view him or his potential position. I think he'll settle in as a stretch 4 or a 3 who is well hidden on defense. The Celtics probably don't really know which positions they'll have playing time available at, given the likely turnover of their roster over the next year, but being versatile makes him easier to work with and find minutes for. Anderson is certainly a high risk high reward prospect and with an earlier pick in the lottery the Celtics should feel a bit safer taking a gamble.
Cleanthony Early

  18. *Phoenix | Cleanthony Early | 6-7 | 210 | SF/PF | Wichita State | 27

The Suns don't need another high upside player, as they already have Len, Goodwin, and of course Bledsoe who's still improving, not to mention Plumlee and Morris who're looking like a couple of keepers. Early is NBA ready, and tested very well at the combine which means he should be able to keep up with a run and gun Suns team. He might be able to get more minutes as a stretch 4 in a line-up like this, but should primarily play at SF.
Adreian Payne

  19. *Denver | Adreian Payne | 6-10 | 240 | PF | Michigan St. | 27

The perfect compliment to Gibson and Noah down low. The Bulls could bring over Mirotic this year as a stretch 4, but could easily incorporate both players if need be. There's a chance this pick is traded, but either way a lot of teams would look at Payne here. Very athletic and physical, which most stretch 4s are not (bonus) and has more upside than a typical college senior.
Glenn Robinson III

  20. Toronto | Glenn Robinson III | 6-7 | 211 | SF | Michigan | 24

Here's a guy with serious boom or bust potential. The Raps have some needs, but no serious holes in their starting 5, and can afford to take a bit of a gamble at #20 in the draft. Robinson is another athletic wing who's shot is looking nice in workouts. He could back up both Ross and DeRozan and could push Ross to grow as a player. They could look for a PF but it doesn't look like there are any PFs on the board who could actually crack their rotation any time soon. They're not going to take Ennis just for the sake of taking a Canadian, but if they don't think they could resign Lowry a PG might be in the mix, and Ennis would be a nice pickup at #20. I like Payton much better though.
Jusuf Nurkic

  21. *Oklahoma Cty | Jusuf Nurkic | 6-11 | 280 | C | Bosnia & Herzegovina | 23

People will argue this since they have Steven Adams, but with Collison and Perkins getting older they'll need another big in their rotation in a year or two. Nurkic could easily be gone before this and for good reason (upside, strength, size, touch, youth). If not, he could be a steal once he develops and learns the NBA game.
PJ Hairston

  22. Memphis | PJ Hairston | 6-5 | 228 | SG | USA | 25

The Grizz desperately need a scorer on the wing and Hairston has potential to be a really good scorer. He has a nice mix of size, athleticism and shooting, and is a prototype SG in todays game. Attitude is a concern, which is why he's not being picked higher. Could start by seasons end. Toughness would fit in well in Memphis.
KJ McDaniels

  23. *Utah | KJ McDaniels | 6-6 | 196 | SF | Clemson | 25

The Jazz should try to snag a SF here, as either a backup to Hayward or a potential starter in the future if Hayward leaves this summer. IMO McDaniels has some decent upside in him, and I think his athleticism numbers at the combine were a bit of a fluke (I think he's more athletic than his numbers suggested. Maybe an off day for him?). What I really like is the defensive potential. I think he has potential to be like Tony Allen but bigger and a better shooter, and that's not bad at all. It would also be an ideal pairing with Alec Burks.
Jordan Adams

  24. *Miami | Jordan Adams | 6-5 | 209 | SG | UCLA | 23

Adams is kind of a dark horse. He could easily turn out to be better than Gary Harris, who's getting drafted 8 spots higher. Charlotte could definitely use another shot maker (even with the addition of Dougie at #9) and Adams is a solid defender as well. Lack of explosiveness aside, I think Adams could be a great bench piece who plays both ends of the court and could possibly replace Henderson soon.
Elfrid Payton

  25. Houston | Elfrid Payton | 6-4 | 185 | PG | Louisiana Lafayette | 24

The only reason Payton is still here is that nobody needs a point guard, and being a high upside player, Payton needs playing time, not sitting on the bench behind a good player for several years. The Rockets would be thrilled to be able to upgrade their starting PG (I'm really high on Payton, despite him slipping in my mock). He might struggle with his shot at first, but his defensive ability and explosiveness are sorely needed in Houston. The steal of the draft if he slips this far.
Tyler Ennis

  26. Charlotte | Tyler Ennis | 6-2 | 180 | PG | Syracuse | 23

Miami might take the BPA since who knows who'll be returning, but I'd bank on them returning the big 3. I think there's a good chance they retain one of their two point guards, but Ennis could be better than Cole and Chalmers in a couple years. For now he's a rookie that might be ready to play 15mpg right away because of his leadership and poise. He has the mindset you want a player to have when bringing them into a championship locker room.
Clint Capela

  27. *Phoenix | Clint Capela | 6-11 | 222 | PF/C | Switzerland | 24

Another Spurs draft and stash player? Not to be cliche, but they really maximize the foreign talent that they bring in. Capela also has a pretty high upside due to his timing defensively, his size and his athleticism. He could become a starter int he NBA one day with a similar path as Serge Ibaka. He needs some weight and to refine his offense but his explosiveness, reach and length can't be taught. The Spurs don't really have any long term options for their front court for after Duncan retires so it might be time to start some planning for the future.
Mitch McGary

  28. LA Clippers | Mitch McGary | 6-10 | 266 | C | Michigan | 26

Everyone knows the Clips need to add some quality backup big men. McGary is a risk because of his injury, but if he comes back healthy he should more than justify this draft position (projected lottery last year in an admittedly soft draft). He doesn't protect the rim like Jordan but he's a big strong body who can keep other bigs out of the paint. Decent touch around the rim.
Shabazz Napier

  29. Oklahoma Cty | Shabazz Napier | 6-0 | 175 | PG | UConn | 26

Reggie Jackson is going to earn himself a big payday next summer, and when he does the Thunder might not be able to retain him. Napier has top notch leadership qualities and I predict that he'll be a fast learner. He's steady and clutch and would be perfect playing along side Westbrook and Durant or running the show as the leader of the second unit.
Damien Inglis

  30. San Antonio | Damien Inglis | 6-9 | 240 | SF/PF | France | 23

Toronto has a young team, and with raw players like Ross and JV, they probably don't want to bring more than one rookie into the fold. Inglis is a high ceiling player with great physical tools and is not even 20 years old yet. He very well could sneak into the first round, but if not he could be an absolute steal. He might not fit into the current team, but I don't expect him to be ready for a couple of years anyways.
Jordan Clarkson

  31. Milwaukee | Jordan Clarkson | 6-4 | 186 | PG/SG | Missouri | 26

Earlier in the year he was touted as a potential lotto pick, and at the combine he showed why. He needs to work on his shooting but his size, explosiveness and ability to play both guard spots (eventually) give him a great pro outlook. He needs to become a better distributor; he has much higher upside as a big PG than as a small SG who can't shoot. Get this guy into the gym and you could have a potential steal in the second round in a few years. Could eventually become the starting PG in Milwaukee if Knight doesn't pan out. If not, might need him to replace Mayo's scoring punch off the bench if Mayo continues to show up out of shape.
Semaj Christon

  32. *Philadelphia | Semaj Christon | 6-3 | 186 | PG | Xavier | 25

One of my favorite sleeper prospects. His relentless attacking mentality and slightly unorthodox game make him fun to root for. He's a good finisher with great size and bounce. She shot much better this year but on a low volume and he didn't exactly come up big in the tournament. Could improve his decision making too. Still, he has high upside and was seen as a potential lotto pick earlier in the year. Philly is probably looking for best players available or taking shots on players with boom potential.
CJ Wilcox

  33. *Cleveland | CJ Wilcox | 6-5 | 201 | SG | Washington | 27

The Cavs can actually fill a need at #33 (not too common). They need more shooters who'll actually take good shots. Wilcox won't try to do too much. He's not seen as an upside player, but his combine numbers make me think that if he were in a system that utilized his athleticism more he could be much, much better than we all think he is (Wes Mathews-type ceiling?)
Jerami Grant

  34. *New York | Jerami Grant | 6-8 | 214 | SF | Syracuse | 24

This might be the biggest free fall in the draft. Once thought of a top 12 pick (noticing a theme here?), he slips because of the same reason his stock rose in the first place: his rawness. On one hand his ceiling is sky high with that length and athleticism, but on the other hand he just has so far to go, and his floor is ridiculously low. He's a tweener who needs to add weight/post moves or vastly improve his handles and shooting. I could see Cuban taking a chance on a guy would could become Shawn Marion 2.0 (that's about his max ceiling, IMO). Low risk picking this late, but extremely high reward if he pans out.
Spencer Dinwiddie

  35. *Memphis | Spencer Dinwiddie | 6-6 | 205 | PG/SG | Colorado | 25

BPA/most intriguing player available. The Jazz need backups at both guard spots. If healthy, he could be a huge steal who fills two needs and finds playing time early. Could also potentially outplay Alec Burks.
Vasilje Micic

  36. *Milwaukee | Vasilje Micic | 6-6 | 202 | PG | Serbia | 24

While they have Knight, and I have them taking Clarkson earlier in the second round, Micic is a pass first point guard that the team is sorely lacking. He could be stashed if they decide 3 rookies are too many. I wouldn't say he has high upside exactly, but he could translate to the NBA better than expected like Calderon (who he's often compared to). Could be a good change of pace from Knight, and could play with Knight, Wiggins and Giannis is small line-ups. Not as high ceiling as Clarkson but is a safer pick. Considered by many a 1st round talent.
Walter Tavares

  37. *Toronto | Walter Tavares | 7-3 | 260 | C | Spain | 26

There have been some talks about trading Pekovic, and I don't know how much validity there is to that, but with the emergence of Dieng last year (small sample size, I know) they might be OK with a trade if it nets them another quality player in return. Having said that, Tavares could be a project player who backs up Dieng and has a chance to become a very good defender in the paint with his length. Would take a while to have an impact. Reminds me of Gobert.
Jabari Brown

  38. Detroit | Jabari Brown | 6-4 | 215 | SG | Missouri | 25

This is a simple pick for need. The Pistons need shooting to help with their spacing. He could struggle to get his shot off at first, but it's worth taking a flier in the mid second round.
DeAndre Daniels

  39. *Philadelphia | DeAndre Daniels | 6-8 | 195 | SF | UConn | 26

The 76ers might take BPA and look at trade possibilities with a bunch of their second rounders. Daniels could probably be taken 10 spots higher than this, and they might be able to get a decent return on him if another team really likes him and thought about taking him in the late 20s. He's fairly well rounded but he isn't great at any one thing.
Jarnell Stokes

  40. *Minnesota | Jarnell Stokes | 6-8 | 260 | PF | Tennessee | 24

Stokes isn't going to replace Love, but he's a guy who is really underrated, and some point out that some of his strengths and weaknesses are similar to that of Julius Randle. He's a tough guy who could help out on the boards right away, and if Love stays he could be a really nice back up making sure the Wolves don't let up on the boards when Love sits for a breather.
CJ Fair

  41. Denver | CJ Fair | 6-8 | 218 | SF | Syracuse | 26

Houston could use a well rounded wing. Last year they were lacking depth and talent on their bench on the wing. Fair isn't going to be a star but he's able to do a bit of everything. Can shoot, rebounds his position, solid athleticism, good size.
Markel Brown

  42. *Houston | Markel Brown | 6-4 | 185 | SG | Oklahoma State | 26

Brown is undersized but he's such a good defender, and is so athletic that he makes up for being a couple inches short. His shooting and overall offense improved a lot this year too. He might need to develop some PG skills to really get some playing time but he has the tools to be a high level energy guy off the bench.
DeAndre Kane

  43. Atlanta | DeAndre Kane | 6-4 | 200 | PG/SG | Iowa St. | 29

A rock solid combo guard who could back up both Wall and Beal. If he shoots it consistently, he could wind up with a prominent bench role next year. Ready to contribute right away.
Thanasis Antetokounmpo

  44. *Brooklyn | Thanasis Antetokounmpo | 6-6 | 205 | SF | Greece | 25

An energy player, who isn't very smooth, but is explosive and hustles. Has an improving shot. Some think he has late first round talent. I don't think that's the case in this draft, but Charlotte could use a defensive energy guy, and do some of what Jeff Taylor did before his injury.
Patric Young

  45. Charlotte | Patric Young | 6-10 | 247 | PF/C | Florida | 26

The Bulls need another defensive minded C to back up Noah. Young could play minutes right away (a rare find in the second round), and can anchor a defense with his strength. He's a grown man who won't get pushed around, and some think he still has a little unlocked potential on the offensive end.
Deonte Burton NV

  46. *LA Lakers | Deonte Burton NV | 6-1 | 193 | PG/SG | Nevada | 26

The 76ers are looking for players who could be assets. I think Burton could have a 1st year similar to Pierre Jackson. He might get thrown into the D League, light it up and eventually get traded for a late first or early second, which will probably happen with Jackson.
Bogdan Bogdanovic

  47. *New Orleans | Bogdan Bogdanovic | 6-6 | 205 | SG | Serbia | 25

Good ball skills, and very nice length for a guard. Has a lot of experience for a player his age and could be a bit of a dark horse. He looks like his game will transfer a lot better than most Europeans, and looks to be strong enough to not get run over on defense. Milwaukee likely doesn't have a clear idea of what roles all of their players will be playing, which means taking a player who could stay in Europe for a year might be a smart move.
Russ Smith

  48. *Atlanta | Russ Smith | 6-1 | 160 | PG/SG | Louisville | 27

Smith is a very intriguing player because of his shot making ability, relentlessness and his huge jump in assist numbers this year. I've been hearing that he's done a really good job in workouts of proving that he can be a traditional point guard. he's known as a scorer, and for good reason, but I think he can bring a little something else to the team who picks him and I think they'll be pleasantly surprised.
Melvin Ejim

  49. Chicago | Melvin Ejim | 6-6 | 220 | SF/PF | Iowa St. | 27

I think this would be a great fit for both Ejim and the Suns. He's similar to PJ Tucker in that he's a big SF who has an improving shot and is able to contribute on the boards and on defense, but he looks more athletic. The Suns could use another glue guy in case Tucker isn't resigned, and to add forward depth.
Nick Johnson

  50. Phoenix | Nick Johnson | 6-3 | 198 | SG | Arizona | 25

The Mavs rotation is somewhat of an unknown right now. Calderon and Ellis could come back as the starting back court, and Larkin is a good player, who could be their starter eventually if he continues to get better. Johnson doesn't have Larkin's upside, but what he does have is defensive tenacity and more size and explosiveness. He could get a shot as a guy who comes in off the bench and tries to lock down high scoring guards. Could be a 3 and D type of role player if he improves his shooting. Good leader too.
Dwight Powell

  51. *New York | Dwight Powell | 6-11 | 235 | PF | Stanford | 26

A strong candidate to actually crack a rotation depending on where he goes. This guy seemingly has loads of untapped potential, and given his co-ordination, fluidity, quickness, athleticism, he's really able to out-maneuver opposing big men. He also has range and good size/length. The only thing holding him back is his lack of assertiveness.
Alec Brown

  52. *Philadelphia | Alec Brown | 7-1 | 231 | PF/C | Wisconsin Green Bay | 25

if love gets traded, Brown could give the Wolves someone who could stretch the floor and allow Pekovic some room to operate (maybe a Ryan Kelly type of role on offense). He is actually a really strong rim protector (over 3BPG). He could use some more weight and sometimes looks a bit mechanical, but has a rare combination of shot blocking and shot making skills. Couldn't hurt to give him a shot at #53.
Alessandro Gentile

  53. *Minnesota | Alessandro Gentile | 6-7 | 230 | SG/SF | Italy | 25

Cory Jefferson

  54. *San Antonio | Cory Jefferson | 6-9 | 220 | PF | Baylor | 27

The Heat, as mentioned before, are going to have a lot of change over this summer. They could certainly use a couple of cheap players if they think they can find some guys who fit their system. I think Jefferson could be one of those guys. He actually reminds me of Udonis Haslem because they're both solid but not great rebounders, pretty athletic (when Haslem was young) and both have a solid mid range jumper. Jefferson certainly has the body to be an NBA player.
Johnny O'Bryant

  55. *Charlotte | Johnny O'Bryant | 6-8 | 257 | PF/C | LSU | 25

O'Bryant had better numbers than people expected at the combine and appears to have lost weight. He looks good from an athletic standpoint which might reduce some of the concerns about his body. He's fairly well rounded but doesn't do any one thing at a high level. Nuggets are deep and likely aren't playing more than one rookie regularly next year. Denver could definitely put together a package for a star player and O'Bryant would be a solid pickup if they need to fill some roster spots with their second round picks.
Juvonte Reddic

  56. *Orlando | Juvonte Reddic | 6-9 | 250 | PF/C | VCU | 26

Juvonte is a serious hustle player, which fits the Pacers ideals. As a defense-first team, they could use a big athletic player who works hard and fits their blue collar mentality.
James McAdoo

  57. Indiana | James McAdoo | 6-9 | 230 | PF | North Carolina | 25

The greatest reclamation challenge for the Spurs ever? The Spurs never get a chance to work with top 10 HS recruits, but here one falls right into their lap. McAdoo is a long way off from reaching those expectations, but if anyone can get the most out of him it's the Spurs. It may not be likely that they turn him into a star, but stranger things have happened in the NBA. Never count out the Spurs development staff.
Jordan Bachynski

  58. *Philadelphia | Jordan Bachynski | 7-2 | 248 | C | Arizona St. | 28

The Raptors could use a shot blocker like him. He's no Chuck Hayes (in both a good and a bad way), which will give them an entirely different option backing up JV. He is Canadian which is a bonus, although he's from Calgary, which is obviously nowhere even close to Toronto. Fans would still love to see a Canadian drafted by the Raptors.
Jahii Carson

  59. *Brooklyn | Jahii Carson | 5-11 | 180 | PG | Arizona St. | 25

He also falls in the same boat as Deonte Burton. He's an explosive player who could be a sparkplug off the bench, the problem is that everyone already has point guards on their roster. It doesn't help being under 6' either (was like 5'9'' in socks). He would certainly earn playing time in the D League and get a chance to work on his distributing. Could be a Patty Mills/Jose Barea type of scorer off the bench, especially if Mills tries to pursue a bigger pay day elsewhere.
Khem Birch

  60. *Brooklyn | Khem Birch | 6-9 | 209 | PF | UNLV | 25
