Here is the second round of The Sports Bank’s 2014 NBA Mock Draft where team needs and outstanding trades have NOT been taken into account with this second round.  By the way, The Sports Bank had the most accurate NBA Mock Draft in both 2011 and 2012 along with the second most accurate mock in 2013.

31. Milwaukee- P.J. Hairston, SG, North Carolina, 6-6, Jr.
P.J. Hairston has solid size and strength to be an NBA off guard but also displays a pretty stroke from the perimeter. He was dismissed from the UNC team this season and is beginning a D-League stint.

32. Cleveland (from ORL)- Jabari Brown, SG, Missouri, 6-5, Jr.
The Mizzou off guard has good size for the next level and can stroke it from deep.

33. Philadelphia- Mouhammadu Jaiteh, PF/C, France, 6-11, 1994
A physical presence in the paint, Jaiteh is still raw with his offensive game but the Sixers could draft and stash him with their third pick of the draft.

34. Sacramento- James Michael McAdoo, PF, North Carolina, 6-9, Jr.
Stuck between a small forward and power forward, James Michael McAdoo hasn’t lived up to the hype at UNC but still is an intriguing prospect especially in the second round.

35. Dallas (from BOS)- C.J. Wilcox, SG, Washington, 6-5, Sr.
C.J. Wilcox is a pure scorer with a pretty outside stroke and good size for the next level.

36. L.A. Lakers- Dorrian Finney-Smith, SF, Florida, 6-8, Soph.
An athletic, versatile forward who can handle the rock or shoot it from the outside, Finney-Smith’s versatility is his biggest asset.

37. Cleveland- Jordan Bachynski, C, Arizona State, 7-2, Sr.
His size alone makes him an intriguing second round prospect.

38. Utah- DeAndre Kane, G, Iowa State, 6-4, Sr.
A transfer from Marshall, DeAndre Kane is a versatile guard who does a little bit of everything on the floor and has been a huge part of the Cylcones’ success this season.

39. Houston (from NY)- Dwight Powell, PF, Stanford, 6-9, Sr.
Dwight Powell is a crazy athlete but has not truly developed his all-around game.

40. Detroit- Alex Poythress, SF, Kentucky, 6-8, Soph.
Alex Poythress had a very up and down freshman season but there is still a lot to like about his combination of size, strength, and athleticism.

41. New Orleans- Russ Smith, G, Louisville, 6-0, Sr.
Russ Smith is a shooting guard trapped in a point guard’s body which hurts his stock but is lightning quick and a fearless scorer.

42. Charlotte- Jordan Adams, SG, UCLA, 6-5, Soph.
A physical off guard and talented all-around scorer, Jordan Adams would be a great value in the second round.

43. Philadelphia (from BRK)- Markel Brown, SG, Oklahoma State, 6-3, Sr.
The OK State senior can score the basketball but his size as a shooting guard hurts his stock.

44. Washington- Roy Devyn Marble, G/F, Iowa, 6-6, Sr.
The Hawkeye senior can play multiple positions and that versatility should be attractive to NBA scouts.

45. Denver- Cleanthony Early, SF, Wichita State, 6-8, Sr.
Cleanthony Early garnered national attention during the Shockers’ run to the Final Four and is a physical, athletic forward with good range on his jumper.

46. Minnesota- Juvonte Reddic, PF, VCU, 6-9, Sr.
With a solid combination of strength, athleticism, and activity, Juvonte Reddic could be a solid role player at the next level.

47. Chicago- Cameron Bairstow, PF, New Mexico, 6-9, Sr.
The Aussie is a physical presence down low but also has a nice mid-range game. Thanks to a breakout senior campaign, he could land in the second round.

48. Milwaukee (from TOR)- Jahii Carson, PG, Arizona State, 5-10, Soph.
A bit undersized, Jahii Carson is lightning quick off the bounce and can also knock down outside shots.

49. Atlanta- Kendall Williams, G, New Mexico, 6-4, Sr.
The Lobo senior is a combo guard and terrific athlete.

50. Cleveland (from MEM)- Alessandro Gentile, G/F, Italy, 6-6, 1992
A prototypical European wing player, the Italian can handle the ball and is a crafty scorer.

51. Dallas- Cory Jefferson, PF, Baylor, 6-9, Sr.
Cory Jefferson is a physical, athletic big man but needs to improve his offensive versatility.

52. Minnesota (from GS)- Deonte Burton, PG, Nevada, 6-1, Sr.
Deonte Burton didn’t have the breakout junior season many expected but has put together a big senior year so he should get drafted.

53. Phoenix- Dmitry Kulagin, PG, Russia, 6-5, 1992
Creativity and playmaking ability is what makes Dmitry Kulagin an intriguing prospect.

54. Philadelphia (from HOU)- Jordan McRae, SG, Tennessee, 6-6, Sr.
The SEC Player of the Year put himself on the radar with a terrific junior campaign and is a talented all-around scorer.

55. L.A. Clippers- Patric Young, F/C, Florida, 6-9, Sr.
Patric Young is built like a house and plays with an incredible motor but has shown little development offensively.

56. Miami- Bryce Cotton, G, Providence, 6-1, Sr.
A combo guard who has always been a dangerous outside shooter, Bryce Cotton has improved his point guard skills this season as well which could help him get drafted.

57. Denver (from POR)- Aaron Craft, PG, Ohio State, 6-2, Sr.
One of the best on the ball defenders in college basketball, Aaron Craft could land on an NBA roster because of his work ethic.

58. San Antonio- LeBryan Nash, SF, Oklahoma State, 6-7, Jr.
The Cowboy junior has underachieved during his first two years at OK State but has an NBA ready body and athleticism.

59. Toronto (from OKC)- Aaric Murray, C, Texas Southern, 6-10, Sr.
The well-traveled big man is skilled and since size is always needed in the NBA, he has a chance to get drafted. He is one of the top scorers in the nation this year.

60. Indiana- D.J. Newbill, SG, Penn State, 6-4, Jr.
A skilled and athletic combo guard, D.J. Newbill will likely leave Penn State after this season.
