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.

Washington- Greivis Vasquez, G, Maryland, 6-6, Sr.
Some depth behind Gilbert Arenas would be a smart option for the Wizards.

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.

36. DetroitSolomon Alabi, C, Florida State, 7-1, Soph.
Size, size, and size.  That’s what Detroit needs this off-season and though he is still a raw talent, that is what Alabi has.

37. 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.

38. New York (from LAC)- Armon Johnson, PG, Nevada, 6-3, Jr.
Knicks have no true point guard and need to fill plenty of holes on their roster so they go with the best available player.

39. New York-
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.

40. Indiana-
Miroslav Raduljica, C, Serbia, 7-0, 1988
The Pacers have several big men on their roster who are free agents after this season so Raduljica could be a great asset heading into 2011.

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.

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.

43. L.A. Lakers (from MEM)- 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.

44. Portland (from CHI)- Trevor Booker, PF, Clemson, 6-7, Sr.
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-
Artsiom Parakhouski, C, Radford, 6-11, Sr.
Bucks could use some muscle behind Andrew Bogut.

48. Miami- Jerome Jordan, C, Tulsa, 7-0, Sr.

With three second rounders, who knows?  I mind as well pick this one out of a hat but size is always a need in the NBA.

49. San Antonio- Paulo Prestes, C, Spain, 6-11, 1988

The Spurs have had success with overseas players in the past and could use some 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)- Mikhail Torrance, G, Alabama, 6-5, Sr.
Another option at the point which has been a position the Pacers have struggled finding an answer.

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

60. Phoenix (from CLE)- Kenneth Faried, PF, Morehead State, 6-8, Jr.
The Lake Show could use some toughness and rebounding off their bench.
