Here is the second round of our updated 2013 NBA Mock Draft.  Check back later today for our FINAL version. Click on the players’ name for a complete, in-depth scouting report.

(By the way, The Sports Bank was graded as the most accurate 2011 AND 2012 NBA Mock Draft on the web.)


31. Cleveland (from ORL)- Glen Rice Jr., G/F, 6-6, NBADL
Glen Rice Jr. would give the Cavs another scorer/shooter on the wing.

32. Oklahoma City (from CHA)- Alex Abrines, SG, Spain, 6-5, 1993
With their third pick of the draft, OKC goes the foreign route with a draft and stash prospect.

33. Cleveland- Isaiah Canaan, PG, Murray State, 6-0, Sr.
The Cavs don’t have a true backup to Kyrie Irving so Isaiah Canaan makes sense here.

34. Houston (from PHX)- Archie Goodwin, SG, Kentucky, 6-5, Fr.
The Rockets don’t have much depth at guard behind James Harden and Jeremy Lin and Archie Goodwin would be a great value this low.  Houston GM Daryl Morey loves value.

35. Philadelphia (from NO)- DeShaun Thomas, SF, Ohio State, 6-7, Jr.
The 76ers need depth on the wing since Nick Young and Dorrell Wright are both free agents.

36. Sacramento- C.J. Leslie, F, N.C. State, 6-9, Jr.
C.J. Leslie is a ridiculous athlete who excels above the rim.

37. Detroit- Lorenzo Brown, PG, N.C. State, 6-5, Jr.
Lorenzo Brown would be a great value this low and the Pistons need some depth at guard since Jose Caldron is a free agent.

38. Washington- Pierre Jackson, PG, Baylor, 5-10, Sr.
The Wiz need some depth at guard behind John Wall and Bradley Beal.

39. Portland (from MIN)- Jeff Withey, C, Kansas, 7-0, Sr.
Jeff Withey is a solid shot blocker and Portland needs options up-front since J.J. Hickson is a free agent.

40. Portland- Grant Jarrett, PF, Arizona, 6-10, Fr.
A stretch four who is nowhere near ready to contribute right away, Jarrett will spend some time in the D-League but does have solid potential.

41. Memphis (from TOR)- James Southerland, SF, Syracuse, 6-8, Sr.
With limitless range from the outside, James Southerland could find a home at the next level due to his ability to stretch defenses.

42. Philadelphia- Nate Wolters, G, South Dakota State, 6-5, Sr.
The Sixers have a need for outside shooting and Nate Wolters can light it up from deep.

43. Milwaukee- Carrick Felix, SG, Arizona State, 6-6, Sr.
By addressing their point guard need in the first round, the Bucks should look to add depth at the two.

44. Dallas- Mike Muscala, PF/C, Bucknell, 6-11, Sr.
The Bison big is an inside/outside threat who adds needed size to the Mavs.

45. Portland (from BOS)- Livio Jean-Charles, F, France, 6-9, 1993
With three second round picks, the Blazers should take at least one foreign prospect and Jean-Charles caught the attention of NBA scouts at the Nike Hoops Summit.

46. Utah- Ryan Kelly, PF, Duke, 7-0, Sr.
The former Dukie is a stretch four who would add more insurance in case the Jazz lose Jefferson or Millsap via free agency.

47. Atlanta- Myck Kabongo, PG, Texas, 6-3, So.
The Hawks could be losing Devin Harris in free agency so another point guard would make sense.

48. L.A. Lakers- Kenny Kadji, PF, Miami (FL), 6-10, Sr.
The Lake Show could be looking for size inside with Dwight Howard’s possible exit and Kenny Kadji has good size and the ability to stretch defenses with his perimeter shooting.

49. Chicago- Alexandre Paranhos, SF, Brazil, 6-8, 1992
The Bulls were one of a few teams to work the Brazilian out and view him as a draft and stash prospect.

50. Atlanta (from HOU)- Andre Roberson, SF, Colorado, 6-7, Jr.
A tremendous athlete, Andre Roberson was a prolific rebounder at the college level and could help replace Josh Smith who is a free agent.

51. Orlando (from GS)- Ray McCallum, PG, Detroit, 6-2, Jr.
Ray McCallum would be an option to backup Jameer Nelson since Beno Udrih is a free agent.

52. Minnesota (via BRK)- Solomon Hill, SF, Arizona, 6-7, Sr.
The Wildcat senior is a versatile wing who can do a little bit of everything on the floor but doesn’t excel in one particular area.

53. Indiana- Erik Murphy, PF, Florida, 6-9, Sr.
His inside/outside ability makes Erik Murphy an intriguing prospect despite his lack of NBA athleticism and the Pacers could lose David West via free agency.

54. Washington (from NY)- Marko Todrovic, C, Montenegro, 6-11, 1992
The Wiz go the foreign route with their third pick of the draft.

55. Memphis- Vander Blue, SG, Marquette, 6-5, Jr.
Blue is a tremendous athlete and showed strides this past season with his perimeter game as well.  The Griz could use depth at the two since Tony Allen is a free agent.

56. Detroit (from LAC)- Nemanja Nedovic, G, Serbia, 6-4, 1991
The Pistons use their third pick of the draft as a “stash overseas” option.

57. Phoenix (from DEN)- Will Clyburn, G/F, Iowa State, 6-7, Sr.
The Suns add another wing scorer.

58. San Antonio- Bojan Dubljvic, PF, Serbia, 6-10, 1991
The Spurs have had luck drafting and stashing late picks in the past… worth a shot again.

59. Minnesota (from OKC)- Raul Neto, PG, Brazil, 6-2, 1992
T-Wolves go the foreign route with their fourth pick of the draft.

60. Memphis (from MIA)- Augusto Lima, F, Brazil, 6-11, 1991
With their third pick of the second round, the Suns select a stretch four who could develop overseas and possibly contribute down the road.

    No Cody Zeller? Unless you have information that nobody else has yet, how can you forget somebody like that?
