31. New Jersey– Terrico White, SG, Mississippi, 6-5, So.
White is loaded with talent but very inconsistent.  He could have used another year in college but is worth the value here for the Nets.

32. Oklahoma City (from MIN)- Darington Hobson, G/F, New Mexico, 6-7, Jr.
The “Evan Turner of the West,” Hobson’s strength is his versatility and his ability to play a point forward position.  He would be a nice addition to the young Thunder team.

33. Sacramento- Lance Stephenson, SG, Cincinnati, 6-5, Fr.

Stephenson is a great talent, but did not put it all together in his lone year at Cincy.  I think “Born Ready” has the potential to be a special talent in the NBA and could develop into a future running mate for Tyreke Evans.

Washington– Armon Johnson, PG, Nevada, 6-3, Jr.
The Wiz need to draft a point guard because well, you never know with Gilbert Arenas.

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. DetroitJarvis Varnado, PF, Mississippi State, 6-9, Sr.
Size, size, and size.  That’s what Detroit needs this off-season and Varnado is college basketball’s all time leading shot-blocker.

37. Milwaukee (from PHI)- Miroslav Raduljica, C, Serbia, 7-0, 1988
The Bucks have had success with foreign talent and could use some muscle inside behind Andrew Bogut.

38. New York (from LAC)- Quincy Pondexter, G/F, Washington, 6-6, Sr.
Pondexter would be a great value this low for a Knicks team that needs help at every position.

39. New York- 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.

40. Indiana- Greivis Vasquez, G, Maryland, 6-6, Sr.
The Pacers are still looking for a long-term solution at the point.

41. Miami (from NO)- Stanley Robinson, SF, UConn, 6-9, Sr.

Anything is possible with this Heat team since they have three second round picks, a ton of cap space, and only a few players under contract for next year.

42. Miami (from Tor)- 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.

43. L.A. Lakers (from MEM)- Sherron Collins, PG, Kansas, 5-11, Sr.
Collins brings experience and toughness to the Lakers backcourt which needs to add some depth.

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)- Mac Koshwal, PF, DePaul, 6-10, Jr.
The Suns could use some toughness and rebounding up-front especially if Amare bolts this off-season.  I think Koshwal could be a sleeper second round steal.

47. Milwaukee- 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.

48. Miami-
Artsiom Parakhouski, C, Radford, 6-11, Sr.
The Heat could use a physical inside presence.

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- Charles Garcia, F, Seattle U, 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)- Tiny Gallon, PF, Oklahoma, 6-9, Fr.

Gallon is young and likely not ready to contribute right away but worth the roll of the dice at this point.

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)- Arnett Moultrie, F, UTEP, 6-10, Soph.
Moultrie is an athletic talent but still very raw in his development.  He could be drafted and stored in the D-League for a year or two.

57. Indiana (from DAL)- Aubrey Coleman, SG, Houston, 6-4, Sr.
College basketball’s leading scorer this past season could be a steal at this point.

58. L.A. Lakers- Jerome Jordan, C, Tulsa, 7-0, Sr.

The Lake Show could use a big body behind Andrew Bynum.

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)- 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.
