31. New Jersey- Craig Brackins, PF, Iowa State, 6-10, Jr.
Once a projected lottery pick, Brackins would be a great second round value for a Nets team in need of some skill at the power forward position.

32. Oklahoma City (from MIN)- Kevin Seraphin, PF, France, 6-10, 1989
With their third pick of the draft, the Thunder should look to take a player who they can store overseas for a year or two if they don’t deal the pick.

33. Sacramento- Sherron Collins, PG, Kansas, 5-11, Sr.

Collins brings experience and toughness to the Kings backcourt which needs to add some depth.

34. Golden State-Dominique Jones, G, South Florida, 6-4, Jr.

Jones offensive game would be attractive to a Warrior team that likes to get up and down.

35. Washington- Greivis Vasquez, G, Maryland, 6-6, Sr.

Some depth behind Gilbert Arenas would be a smart option for the Wizards.

36. Milwaukee (from PHI)- Quincy Pondexter, G/F, Washington, 6-6, Sr.
Pondexter’s toughness and physicality on the wing would be a good fit with Scott Skiles in Milwaukee.

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. New York (from LAC)- Paul George, SF, Fresno State, 6-8, So.
A young talent would be a tremendous value this low and the Knicks need help all across the board.

39. New York- Mac Koshwal, PF, DePaul, 6-10, Jr.

Knicks go with potential again in a player who could help fill the void if David Lee leaves this summer.

40. Indiana- Da’Sean Butler, G/F, West Virginia, 6-7, Sr.

A torn ACL in the Final Four hurts his stock, but there’s no questioning this kid’s ability to play the game.

41. Miami (from NO)- Jarvis Varnado, PF, Mississippi State, 6-9, Sr.

Anything is possible with this Heat team, but every team could use a shot blocker to bring off the bench.

42. L.A. Lakers (from MEM)- Kenneth Faried, PF, Morehead State, 6-8, Jr.

The Lake Show could use some toughness and rebounding off their bench.

43. Miami (from Tor)- Aubrey Coleman, SG, Houston, 6-4, Sr.
Doesn’t hurt to take an offensive-minded two guard in case D-Wade is not back in South Beach next year.

44. Portland (from CHI)- Miroslav Raduljica, C, Serbia, 7-0, 1988
More depth up-front for the inevitable Greg Oden season-ending injury.

45. Minnesota (from HOU)- Nemanja Bjelica, F, Serbia, 6-10, 1988

The T-Wolves have five draft picks so they will either deal one or two or go the foreign route.

46. Phoenix (from CHA)- Charles Garcia, F, Seattle U, 6-9, Jr.

An athletic forward who is a bit of a project adds depth at the four in case Amare bolts the desert via free agency.

47. Milwaukee- Herb Pope, PF, Seton Hall, 6-8, So.

A hard working, rebounding force, Pope is under-sized but could be a solid energy role player in the NBA.

48. Miami- Trevor Booker, PF, Clemson, 6-7, Sr.

With three second rounders, who knows?  I might well pick this one out of a hat.

49. San Antonio- Jerome Jordan, C, Tulsa, 7-0, Sr.

A big body who lives in the paint can provide the Spurs with depth up-front.

50. Dallas (from OKC)- Omar Samhan, C, St. Mary’s, 6-11 Sr.

Mavs could use some options down low since Erick Dampier and Brendan Haywood are free agents.

51. Oklahoma City (from POR)- Lazar Hayward, SF, Marquette, 6-6, Sr.
Hayward’s combination of experience, strength, and outside shooting seem like a good fit in OKC.

52. Boston- Derrick Caracter, PF, UTEP, 6-9, Jr.
Kevin Garnett and Rasheed Wallace are not getting any younger or better.

53. Atlanta- Luke Harangody, PF, Notre Dame, 6-8, Sr.

Hawks need some depth up-front and Harangody is a hard-worker who will bring toughness off the bench.

54. L.A. Clippers (from DEN)- Manny Harris, G, Michigan, 6-5, Jr.

Too good of a value for the Clips to pass up, plus they could use some depth in their backcourt.

55. Utah- Matt Bouldin, G, Gonzaga, 6-4, Sr.
Doesn’t Bouldin just seem like he would be a great fit with Jerry Sloan in Utah?

56. Minnesota (from PHX)- 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.

57. Indiana (from DAL)- Sylven Landesberg, SG, Virginia, 6-5, Soph.
Likely headed overseas for a year or two since getting released from his scholarship at Virginia.

58. L.A. Lakers- Jon Scheyer, G, Duke, 6-5, Sr.

Lakers could use some youth and depth at the guard spot and a Derek Fisher-replacement which Scheyer could become.

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

60. Phoenix (from CLE)- Dwayne Collins, PF, Miami (Fl), 6-8, Sr.
The Suns could use some depth up-front in case Amare bolts the desert this summer.
