31. New JerseyLance 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 he will be a good NBA player one day and could be a future steal 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 that doesn’t need Hobson to contribute right away.

33. Sacramento
Greivis Vasquez, G, Maryland, 6-6, Sr.
With all due respect to Beno Udrih, the Kings need another option at the point.

WashingtonGani Lawal, PF, Georgia Tech, 6-9, Jr.
Lawal would provide some needed muscle and effort to the Wizards frontcourt.

35. Golden StateDominique Jones, G, South Florida, 6-4, Jr.
Jones offensive game would be attractive to a Warrior team that likes to get up and down.  His ability to drive to the basket would help open things on the perimeter for Stephen Curry and Monta Ellis.

36. DetroitJerome Jordan, C, Tulsa, 7-0, Sr.
Jordan won’t wow you with his athleticism, but his size is something the Pistons need this off-season.

37. Milwaukee (from PHI)- Craig Brackins, PF, Iowa State, 6-10, Jr.
Once a projected lottery pick, Brackins would be a great value for the Bucks who are in need of depth up-front.

38. New York (from LAC)- Quincy Pondexter, G/F, Washington, 6-6, Sr.
With back-to-back second round picks and plenty of holes on their roster, the Knicks take the best available players.

39. New YorkArmon Johnson, PG, Nevada, 6-3, Jr.
Sticking with the best available player theory, the Knicks have no true point guards on their roster.

40. Indiana- Jarvis Varnado, PF, Mississippi State, 6-9, Sr.
One of the Pacers’ major needs this off-season is a shot-blocking big which is exactly what Varnado is.

41. Miami (from NO)-
Miroslav Raduljica, C, Serbia, 7-0, 1988
The Heat need help all across the board and Raduljica could be a long-term sleeper.

42. Miami (from Tor)- Da’Sean Butler, G/F, West Virginia, 6-7, Sr.
Butler has the ability to be a valuable bench player in the NBA due to his three-point shooting and history of being Mr. Clutch.

43. L.A. Lakers (from MEM)- Mac Koshwal, PF, DePaul, 6-10, Jr.
The Lakers could use some depth up-front especially since Andrew Bynum always seems to be injured.  I think Koshwal could be a sleeper second round steal.

44. Portland (from CHI)- Stanley Robinson, SF, UConn, 6-9, Sr.
The Blazers’ roster is pretty set so they take the best available prospect which is the crazy athletic Robinson.

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, 6-10, Jr.
The Suns need to have options in case Amare bolts this summer.

47. Milwaukee-Sherron Collins, PG, Kansas, 5-11, Sr.
Collins brings experience and toughness to the Bucks backcourt which needs to add some depth since Luke Ridnour is a free agent.

48. Miami-
Aubrey Coleman, SG, Houston, 6-4, Sr.
College basketball’s leading scorer this past season gives Miami options in case Dwyane Wade is not back in South Beach.

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)-
Artsiom Parakhouski, C, Radford, 6-11, Sr.
Mavs could use some options down low since Erick Dampier and Brendan Haywood are free agents.

51. Oklahoma City (from POR)- 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 which is fine since the Thunder do not have any pressing needs.

52. Boston- Tiny Gallon, PF, Oklahoma, 6-9, Fr.
Gallon is young and likely not ready to contribute right away but worth the chance to develop behind the aging Kevin Garnett and Rasheed Wallace.

53. Atlanta
– Trevor Booker, PF, Clemson, 6-7, Sr.
Hawks need some depth up-front and Booker is a hard-worker who will bring toughness off the bench.

54. L.A. Clippers (from DEN)- Mikhail Torrance, G, Alabama, 6-5, Sr.

The Clippers could use some depth in the backcourt and Torrance can play either guard position.

55. UtahLazar Hayward, SF, Marquette, 6-6, Sr.
Jerry Sloan would love Hayward’s combination of experience, toughness, and outside shooting.

56. Minnesota (from PHX)- Sylven Landesberg, SG, Virginia, 6-5, Soph.
Likely headed overseas or to the NBDL for a year or two since getting released from his scholarship at Virginia, Minnesota could hope he develops.

57. Indiana (from DAL)- Matt Bouldin, G, Gonzaga, 6-4, Sr.
A versatile, tough guard who could make the Pacers roster.

58. L.A. Lakers- Jon Scheyer, G, Duke, 6-5, Sr.
A potential replacement for the aging Derek Fisher due to his outside shooting and basketball IQ?

59. Orlando- Luke Harangody, PF, Notre Dame, 6-8, Sr.
He could stick on a roster due to his energy and toughness.

60. Phoenix (from CLE)- Vladamir Dasic, SF, Montenegro, 6-10, 1988
An athletic Euro prospect who the Suns can stash overseas for a year or two.
