31. New Jersey- Da’Sean Butler, G/F, West Virginia, 6-7, Sr.

Butler is a proven winner and the Nets need as many of those as possible.

32. Minnesota- Miroslav Raduljica, C, Serbia, 7-0, 1988
With their fourth pick of the draft, taking someone to store overseas seems like the best option.

33. Golden State- Manny Harris, G, Michigan, 6-5, Jr.
Harris is a combo guard who handles the ball well and can score in a variety of ways.  He would be a good fit in Nellie Ball.

34. Washington- Quincy Pondexter, G/F, Washington, 6-6, Sr.
Josh Howard and Mike Miller are both free agents after this season so the Wiz could use some depth on the wing.

35. Indiana- Marquis Gilstrap, SF, Iowa State, 6-6, Sr.
Gilstrap is an athletic wing player who can also shoot the three ball.

36. Sacramento- Scottie Reynolds, PG, Villanova, 6-1, Sr.
This actually might be my favorite pick of the draft.  A sharp-shooter with incredible basketball IQ to run alongside Tyreke Evans?  Seems like a great fit.

37. Detroit- Artsiom Parakhouski, C, Radford, 6-11, Sr.
Size, size, and size.  That’s what Detroit needs this off-season and that is what Parakhoiski has.

38. Milwaukee (from PHI)- Jon Scheyer, G, Duke, 6-5, Sr.
With Luke Ridnour a free agent, the Bucks could use an experienced, intelligent sharp-shooter in case he leaves.

39. New York- Aubrey Coleman, SG, Houston, 6-4, Sr.
Knicks need help across the board and Coleman is the leading scorers in the nation.

40. Denver (from LAC)- Trevor Booker, PF, Clemson, 6-7, Sr.
The Nuggets could use some depth up-front and Booker makes up for his shortcomings with his physicality and non-stop work ethic.

41. Chicago- Dexter Pittman, C, Texas, 6-10, Sr.
A big body who lives in the paint can add some needed strength inside for Chicago.

42. New Orleans- Mac Koshwal, PF, DePaul, 6-10, Jr.
Another option to help the Hornets get deeper up-front.

43. Minnesota (from HOU)- Nemanja Bjelica, F, Serbia, 6-10, 1988
A typical Euro-type prospect, Bjelica has nice handles and range on his jumper, but needs to add muscle.  The T-Wolves could keep him overseas and see how he develops.

44. L.A. Lakers (from MEM)- Alexy Shved, G, Russia, 6-5, 1989
A combo guard, Shved is a natural talent who still has a ways to go in his development before he is ready to play in the association.

45. Toronto- Jerome Jordan, C, Tulsa, 7-0, Sr.
Raptors will need some options up-front if Chris Bosh leaves Canada this summer.

46. Minnesota (from MIA)- Pablo Aquilar, F, Spain, 6-10, 1989
T-Wolves’ sixth and final pick of the draft so mind as well go Euro again.

47. Charlotte- Jerome Dyson, G, 6-3, UConn, Sr.
Dyson excels in transition and off the bounce, and the Bobcats could use a potential replacement in case Raymond Felton goes elsewhere this off-season.

48. Milwaukee- Luke Harangody, PF, Notre Dame, 6-8, Sr.
A hard-worker who could provide some toughness for Milwaukee.

49. Dallas (from POR)- Paulo Prestes, C, Spain, 6-11, 1988
The Mavs could use an insurance policy inside with Erick Dampier and Brendan Haywood both eligible for free agency.

50. San Antonio- Lazar Hayward, SF, Marquette, 6-6, Sr.
Hayward’s combination of experience, strength, and outside shooting seem like a good fit in San Antonio.

51. Charlotte (from PHX)- Raymar Morgan, SF, Michigan State, 6-7, Sr.
When he is healthy, Morgan is a threat due to his tremendous athleticism.  He has elevated his game as of late.

52. Oklahoma City- Matt Bouldin, G, Gonzaga, 6-4, Sr.
Bouldin seems like the type of experienced college player who would be a good fit on a young Thunder team.

53. Boston- Magnum Rolle, PF, Louisiana Tech, 6-11, Sr.
KG and ‘Sheed are not getting any younger, or better for that matter.

54. Utah- Vladamir Dasic, SF, Montenegro, 6-10, 1988
An athletic Euro prospect who the Jazz can stash overseas for a year or two.

55. Atlanta- Dwayne Collins, PF, Miami (Fl), 6-8, Sr.
The Hawks could use some depth up-front and though Collins is under-sized, he is a physical presence.

56. Indiana (from DAL)- Ludovic Vaty, PF, France, 6-9, 1988
Vaty has a nice combination of strength and athleticism, but is still developing as an offensive talent.

57. Toronto (from DEN)- Deon Thompson, PF, North Carolina, 6-9, Sr.
More insurance should the Raptors lose Chris Bosh this summer.

58. Orlando- DeShawn Sims, F, Michigan, 6-8, Sr.
The Wolverine has a solid frame and nice inside/outside game.

59. L.A. Lakers- Trevon Hughes, PG, Wisconsin, 6-1, Sr.
An experienced floor leader who could add some need depth at point for the Lakers.

60. Phoenix (from CLE)- Andy Rautins, SG, Syracuse, 6-4, Sr.
A deadly shooter from the outside and very intelligent player seems like a great fit with the Suns.
