2015 NBA MOCK DRAFT SECOND ROUND
31. Minnesota-Guillermo Hernangomez, C, Spain, 6-11, 1994.
The Spaniard looks the part and posted solid numbers in the ACB this past season.
32. Houston (from NY)-Robert Upshaw, C, Washington, 7-0, Soph.
The former Fresno State transfer is a defensive and physical presence in the paint but was dismissed from the Huskies’ program which will be a red flag among NBA GM’s. Still, he’s worth a second round gamble.
33. Boston (from PHI)-Mouhammadu Jaiteh, C, France, 6-11, 1994
Jaiteh has the size and physicality to bang down low in the NBA.
34. L.A. Lakers-Christian Wood, PF, UNLV, 6-11, Soph.
Christian Wood is a long, athletic forward who has first round potential so he’d be a terrific value at this point.
35. Philadelphia (from ORL)-Jarrell Martin, PF, LSU, 6-9, Soph.
The former McDonald’s All-American is an inside/outside threat.
36. Minnesota (from SAC)-Anthony Brown, G/F, Stanford, 6-6, Sr.
The Cardinal senior can stroke it from deep but also rebounds and defends well for a wing.
37. Philadelphia (from DEN)-Andrew Harrison, PG, Kentucky, 6-5, Soph.
Andrew Harrison displayed improved maturity and decision-making as a sophomore but still didn’t do much to help his draft stock.

38. Detroit-Cliff Alexander, PF, Kansas, 6-9, Fr.
Despite a disappointing freshman campaign, Cliff Alexander brings a terrific combination of strength and athleticism to the floor.

39. Charlotte-Arturs Gudaitis, C, Lithuania, 6-10, 1993.
Gudaitis has a good combination of size and skill.
40. Miami-Dakari Johnson, C, Kentucky, 7-0, Soph.
Dakari Johnson is a true low post scorer and was in much better shape this past season.

41. Brooklyn-Branden Dawson, SF, Michigan State, 6-7, Sr.

42. Utah-J.P. Tokoto, G/F, North Carolina, 6-6, Jr.
While athletic and versatile on both ends, the biggest hole in J.P. Tokoto’s game is his outside shooting.
43. Indiana-Joseph Young, G, Oregon, 6-2, Sr.
A shooting guard trapped in a point guard’s body, Young knows how to score the rock.
44. Phoenix-Norman Powell, SG, UCLA, 6-4, Sr.
A role player his first three seasons with the Bruins, Norman Powell emerged as a go-to scoring option at UCLA during his senior year.
45. Boston-Pat Connaughton, SF, Notre Dame, 6-6, Sr.
The MLB prospect opened eyes with his athleticism at the NBA Combine. He also plays with toughness and can shoot the three.
46. Milwaukee-Olivier Hanlan, G, Boston College, 6-4, Jr.
A combo guard who can score the basketball from all over the floor, Olivier Hanlan’s versatility could land him a spot on an NBA roster.
47. Philadelphia (from NO)-Jordan Mickey, PF, LSU, 6-8, Soph.
Jordan Mickey is an athletic forward who is a high level shot blocker and can clean up the glass despite being a bit undersized.
48. Oklahoma City-Cedi Osman, SF, Turkey, 6-8, 1995
With four picks, the Celtics could afford to take a draft and stash option.
49. Washington-Jonathan Holmes, F, Texas, 6-8, Sr.
An inside/outside threat, Jonathan Holmes’ versatility could land him a spot on an NBA roster.
50. Atlanta (from TOR)-Richaun Holmes, PF, Bowling Green, 6-9, Sr.
A sleeper second round prospect thanks to a solid showing at the PIT.
51. Orlando (from CHI)-Terran Petteway, G/F, Nebraska, 6-6, Jr.
The Cornhusker can score it from anywhere on the floor and good size for an NBA wing.
52. Dallas-Josh Richardson, SG, Tennessee, 6-6, Sr.
With a good combination of size and athleticism, the former Vol could stick as a role player at the next level.
53. Cleveland (from POR)-Aaron Harrison, SG, Kentucky, 6-6, Soph.
A streaky shooter, Aaron Harrison would be a solid second round value.

54. Utah (from CLE)-Tyler Harvey, SG, Eastern Washington, 6-4, Jr.
Harvey led college basketball in scoring but flew under the radar on the national level since he played at Eastern Washington.
55. San Antonio-Michael Frazier, SG, Florida, 6-4, Jr.
Michael Frazier had a disappointing junior season but can stroke it from the outside.
56. New Orleans (from MEM)-Alan Williams, C, UC-Santa Barbara, 6-8, Sr.
Though undersized, the Gaucho knows how to throw his big body around in the paint.
57. Denver (from LAC)-Treveon Graham, SG, VCU, 6-6, Sr.
His ability to light it up from deep should land Graham a spot in the second round.
58. Philadelphia (from HOU)-Quinn Cook, PG, Duke, 6-0, Sr.
Quinn Cook has shot it really well from deep this season and is an aggressive perimeter defender.
59. Atlanta-Vince Hunter, F, UTEP, 6-8, Soph.
Extremely athletic, Hunter is a combo forward who is at his best around the rim.
60. Philadelphia (from GS)-Daniel Diez, SF, Spain, 6-8, 1993.
The Spaniard put up solid numbers overseas and has a nice stroke from the outside.
