NBA Mock Draft

It will be interesting to see how the 2010 NBA Draft unfolds.  There seems to be a consensus top five and then after it is a bit of a crap shoot.  Here is my latest mock draft.  Click on the players name for a full scouting report and click on the team’s name for a full list of off-season needs.  You can also check out my 2011 NBA Mock Draft.

By: David Kay

31. New JerseyTerrico White, SG, Mississippi, 6-5, So.
White is an extremely gifted guard but was rather inconsistent during his sophomore season.

32. Oklahoma City (from MIN)- Ryan Richards, F/C, England, 7-0, 1989
He turned heads at the NBA Draft Combine and could potentially sneak into the first round.  The Thunder can afford to let him develop.

33. Sacramento– Elliot Williams, G, Memphis, 6-4, So.

The Kings need some depth in their backcourt and Williams has first round potential making him a solid choice.

34.
WashingtonGani Lawal, PF, Georgia Tech, 6-9, Jr.
Lawal would provide some needed muscle and effort to the Wizards frontcourt.

35. Golden State Craig Brackins, PF, Iowa State, 6-10, Jr.
Once a projected lottery pick, Brackins would be a great second round value for the Warriors who would benefit from his versatility on offense.

36. DetroitJerome Jordan, C, Tulsa, 7-0, Sr.
Size, size, and more size.  That’s what the Pistons need this off-season and that is Jordan’s biggest asset.

37. Milwaukee (from PHI)- Quincy Pondexter, G/F, Washington, 6-7, Sr.
Pondexter’s toughness and work ethic would be a good fit off the bench in Milwaukee.

38. New York (from LAC)- Greivis Vasquez, G, Maryland, 6-7, Sr.
Knicks have no current option at the point and probably draft the best two available players with back-to-back second round picks.

39. New YorkArtsiom Parakhouski, C, Radford, 6-11, Sr.
Since Eddy Curry is worthless and David Lee is a free agent, Parakhouski would provide some muscle inside.

40. IndianaJarvis 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)-
Armon Johnson, PG, Nevada, 6-3, Jr.
The Heat have a lot of options with three second round picks, but need an up-grade at the point.

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)- 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 is a great second round value and provides some depth on the wing.

45. Minnesota (from HOU)- Miroslav Raduljica, C, Serbia, 7-0, 1988
The T-Wolves are not going to keep all five of their second round picks, but stashing a foreign player overseas is the best option.

46. Phoenix (from CHA)-Luke Harangody, PF, Notre Dame, 6-8, Sr.
The Suns need some options in case Amare bolts this summer and though Harangody is not a gifted athlete, he knocks down open shots and plays hard.

47. MilwaukeeSherron 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- Tiny Gallon, PF, Oklahoma, 6-10, Fr.

He is not ready to be a major contributor but would be a down-the-line type of investment for a Heat team in need of some size.

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)- Trevor Booker, PF, Clemson, 6-8, Sr.

Mavs could use some options down low since Brendan Haywood is a free agent, and Erick Dampier and Dirk Nowitzki could be gone as well.

51. Oklahoma City (from POR) 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.

52. Boston- Dwayne Collins, PF, Miami (Fl), 6-8, Sr.
Kevin Garnett and Rasheed Wallace are getting up their in age and Kendrick Perkins is in the final year of his contract so the C’s could use some fresh blood down low.

53. Atlanta
– Derrick Caracter, PF, UTEP, 6-9, Jr.
The Hawks could use some muscle down low and Character is a big, wide body.

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)- 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 T-Wolves have five picks in the draft.

57. Indiana (from DAL)- Nemanja Bjelica, F, Serbia, 6-10, 1988
The Pacers could land a future replacement for Mike Dunleavy who is entering the final year of his contract.

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– 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.

60. Phoenix (from CLE)- Charles Garcia, F, Seattle U, 6-10, Jr.
The Suns need to have options in case Amare bolts this summer.
