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 Jersey–Dominique Jones, G, South Florida, 6-5, Jr.
A natural scorer with first round talent, Jones would be a great value here even though I have the Nets taking a similar player in Terrico White at #27.
33. Sacramento– Willie Warren, G, Oklahoma, 6-4, So.
Warren was once a lottery prospect but struggled with his shot and injuries this past season causing his stock to plummet. He can shoot the rock and could potentially be a good backcourt mate with Tyreke Evans.
34. Washington– Larry Sanders, PF, VCU, 6-11, Jr.
Somebody is going to slip in this draft and it just so happens to be Sanders in this scenario. He is definitely a first round talent who could go as high as #21.
35. Golden State–Elliot Williams, G, Memphis, 6-4, So.
Williams has first round potential but is more of a combo guard which is why he falls to the Warriors.
40. Indiana– Jarvis Varnado, PF, Mississippi State, 6-9, Sr.
Varnado would be the athletic, defensive big man they didn’t get in the first round.
41. Miami (from NO)- Stanley Robinson, SF, UConn, 6-9, Sr.
Heat have three second round picks and probably load up on the best available talent hoping one or two of them can stick on the roster.
42. Miami (from Tor)- Ryan Richards, F/C, England, 7-0, 1989
He turned heads at the NBA Draft Combine and the Heat are in need of some size.
43. L.A. Lakers (from MEM)- Jerome Jordan, C, Tulsa, 7-0, Sr.
The Lakers could use some depth up-front especially since Andrew Bynum always seems to be injured.

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

48. Miami– Tiny Gallon, PF, Oklahoma, 6-10, Fr.
Gallon is a load inside and still has plenty of room to grow making him worth the risk at this point.
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)- Dexter Pittman, C, Texas, 6-11, 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.
52. Boston- Trevor Booker, PF, Clemson, 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 Caracter is a big, wide body.
54. L.A. Clippers (from DEN)- Mikhail Torrance, G, Alabama, 6-5, Sr.
Clips could use some depth in their backcourt.

56. Minnesota (from PHX)- Miroslav Raduljica, C, Serbia, 7-1, 1988
Raduljica reportedly blew off a workout for a bunch of NBA teams which hurts his stock. But with five picks, the T-Wolves can take a late flyer on him.
58. L.A. Lakers- Jon Scheyer, G, Duke, 6-5, Sr.
A three-point threat who could be a potential replacement for aging free agent Derek Fisher.

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