By: David Kay

31. New Jersey– Chris Wright, PG, Georgetown, 6-1, Sr.
A physical point guard who has shown the ability to run a team.

32. Miami (from MIN)- Demetri McCamey, PG, Illinois, 6-3, Sr.
Took a major step forward last season as a scorer and true point guard.  There are questions about his maturity though.

33. Sacramento Jeremy Tyler, PF, USA, 6-10, 1991
Tyler suffered a Brandon Jennings-like growing experience in Israel after skipping his senior year of high school to play professionally overseas, but is still talented and loaded with potential.

34. New Jersey (from GS)-Pablo Aguilar, F, Spain, 6-10, 1989
A solid shooter, Aguilar sees steady playing time in a very competitive Spanish league which is odd for a player his age.

35. WashingtonNolan Smith, G, Duke, 6-3, Sr.
Is he a point guard or an under-sized two?  That will be the biggest question regarding Smith’s hope of making it in the NBA.

36. L.A.Clippers (from Det)-Chris Wright, SF, Dayton, 6-8, Sr.
He has great strength and can leap out of the gym, but Wright’s lack of an outside shot hurts his stock.

37. PhiladelphiaRobin Benzing, F, Germany, 6-10, 1989
A typical European forward, Benzing is versatile and athletic but still a work in progress.

38. Houston (from LAC)-
Keith Benson, C, Oakland, 6-11, Sr.
An athletic, lengthy big man who needs to get stronger to be a factor at the next level.

39. L.A. Lakers (from NY)- Durrell Summers, SG, Michigan State, 6-4, Sr.
If the Summers who showed up in the NCAA Tournament can carry over that same play during next season, he could get first-round looks.  He is a great athlete and displayed his ability to knock down perimeter jumpers during Sparty’s run to the Final Four.

40. IndianaD.J. Kennedy, SF, St. John’s, 6-7, Sr.
A versatile wing player, Kennedy is more of a slasher who also gets after it on the defensive end.

41. New OrleansLavoy Allen, PF, Temple, 6-9, Sr.
Allen is more of a physical presence in the post and not very talented on the offensive end.  He could be an energy type of role player in the NBA.

42. Detroit (from Tor)-
Malcolm Delaney, PG, Virginia Tech, 6-3, Sr.
Delany is more of a scorer than a true point guard who thrives off the bounce.

43. Memphis– Jamine Peterson, F, Greece, 6-6, 1988
The former Providence Friar will spend a year playing professionally in Greece and then likely enter the draft.  He is built like a house but does not have a true position in the NBA.

44. L.A. Clippers (from Hou)- Antoine Diot, PG, France, 6-4, 1989
Diot really stepped onto the radar after a great season in France and has steadily improved his overall game.

45. Milwaukee (from Chi)- Chandler Parsons, SF, Florida, 6-9, Sr.
Hasn’t overwhelmed anyone during his time in Gainesville, but has a solid combination of athleticism and ability to shoot the rock.

46. CharlotteKalin Lucas, PG, Michigan State, 6-0, Sr.
He knows how to run a team but doesn’t excel in any other area.

47. Sacramento (from Mil)- Austin Freeman, SG, Georgetown, 6-4, Sr.
Freeman can take over a game from the outside but is not incredibly athletic.

48. L.A. Lakers (from Mia)- Anatoly Bose, G/F, Nichols State, 6-6, Sr.
He briefly tested the waters, but wisely chose to return to school for his senior season.

49. San AntonioHerb Pope, PF, Seton Hall, 6-8, Jr.
An under-sized power forward who is a force on the glass and can also knock down shots from the perimeter.

50. Oklahoma City
Talor Battle, PG, Penn State, 5-11, Sr.
Led Penn State in most statistical categories which doesn’t say much, but does show his all-around ability.

51. PortlandLaceDarius Dunn, SG, Baylor, 6-4, Sr.
A tremendous natural scorer, Dunn also brings a level of physicality that should help him transition to the next level.  His recent off-the-court issue drops his stock as teams will now question his character.

52. Boston
Jeremy Hazell, SG, Seton Hall, 6-5, Sr.
A natural scorer in every aspect on the offensive end but tends to be a chucker.

53. AtlantaTracy Smith, PF, N.C. State, 6-8, Sr.
The Wolfpack senior exploded for a very solid junior season, but is an under-sized power forward by NBA standards.

54. Detroit (from Den)- Steven Gray, SG, Gonzaga, 6-5, Sr.
Gray has a nice combination of size, athleticism, and ability to shoot the rock.

55. UtahE’Twaun Moore, G, Purdue, 6-4, Sr.
Moore is a combo guard with a smooth stroke and good quickness off the bounce.

56. Golden State (from CHI via PHX)- Kevin Anderson, PG, Richmond, 6-0, Sr.
A scoring point guard, Anderson will have become more of a facilitator to succeed in the association.

57. DallasGary Flowers, SF, 6-8, Southern Miss, Sr.
Another player to keep an eye on this season, Flowers has flown under the radar but will play for a Golden Eagle team that should contend in Conference USA.

58. L.A. LakersRandy Culpepper, G, UTEP, 6-0, Sr.
A shooting guard trapped in a point guard’s body, Culpepper will have to learn to play the point to make it in the NBA.

59. OrlandoCory Higgins, SG, Colorado, 6-5, Sr.
Michael Jordan is his godfather, but his NBA potential is more along the lines of his dad, Rod.

60. ClevelandDamien Saunders, PF, Duquesne, 6-7, Sr.
A talented scorer and rebounder at the college level, but how will his lack of size translate to the pro game?
