NBA Mock Draft, Version 2.0
JUN 06, 2013 12:24p ET
1. Cleveland: Nerlens Noel, 6-10, C, Kentucky. He can run, he can jump, he can alter shots. But about that ACL...
2. Orlando: Ben McLemore, 6-5, SG, Kansas. If the Ray Allen comparisons are even close to true, you have to take him.
3. Washington: Otto Porter, 6-9, SF, Georgetown. Classic small forward who does everything well. May be a better pro than collegian.
4. Charlotte: Alex Len, 7-1, C, Maryland. Big body and well-rounded with NBA-ready skills.
5. Phoenix: Victor Oladipo, 6-4, SG, Indiana. Athletic and determined defender, but offense has a little ways to go at next level.
6. New Orleans: Anthony Bennett, 6-8, PF, UNLV. Strong underneath, but needs to expand game away from basket.
7. Sacramento: Trey Burke, 6-0, PG, Michigan. Determined winner with all the needed point guard skills.
8. Detroit: Shabazz Muhammad, 6-6, SF, UCLA. Slasher and scorer with a decent mid-range game. Needs to be more consistent.
9. Minnesota: C.J. McCollum, 6-3, SG, Lehigh. Intelligent, driven and athletic enough. May be a bit small to play the two.
10. Portland: Cody Zeller, 7-0, C/PF, Indiana. Very skilled and athletic, but lacked aggressiveness in NCAA tournament.
11. Philadelphia: Kelly Olynyk, 7-0, C, Gonzaga. Has a bit of a wild streak in him; willing to mix it up with a solid mid-range game.
12. Oklahoma City: Steve Adams, 7-0, C, Pittsburgh. Clogs the lane, sets picks and rebounds. Underrated offensively, too.
13. Dallas: Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, 6-6, SG, Georgia. Scores in bunches with a solid mid-range game.
14. Utah: Michael Carter-Williams, 6-6, PG, Syracuse. Heady and unselfish. Good size for a point guard.
15. Milwaukee: Sergey Karasev, 6-7, SF, Russia. May be the best all-around small forward in the draft. Motivation seems questionable.
16. Boston: Rudy Gobert, 7-2, C, France. Can alter shots just by standing near basket and sticking arms straight up. Developing offensive game.
17. Atlanta: Gorqui Dieng, 6-11, C/PF, Louisville. Outstanding athlete with size, but skills and timing need some work.
18. Atlanta: Mason Plumlee, 7-1, C, Duke. Good ball-handler for a big man; rarely makes a wrong play.
19. Cleveland: Reggie Bullock, 6-7, SF, North Carolina. Not great in any one area, but a scorer in every sense of the word.
20. Chicago: Jamaal Franklin, 6-5, SG. Always intense with fair amount of athleticism. Inconsistent shooter.
21. Utah: Dario Saric, 6-10, SF, Croatia. Considered a little soft. No questioning his passing or decent perimeter shot, though.
22. Brooklyn: Tony Mitchell, 6-9, PF, North Texas. Scrappy and can score near the basket. Determined rebounder.
23. Indiana: Dennis Schroeder, 6-2, PG, Germany. Pushes ball and distributes well. Doubts about his half-court game abound.
24. New York: Allen Crabbe, 6-6, SG, California. If he gets to his spot on the perimeter, it’s lights out.
25. L.A. Clippers: Tim Hardaway Jr., 6-6, SG, Michigan. Natural scorer with mental toughness.
26. Minnesota: Deshaun Thomas, 6-7, SF, Ohio State. Always looking to score, and usually does it pretty well.
27. Denver: Jeff Withey, 7-1, C, Kansas. Decent athlete, good size and strong defender.
28. San Antonio: Lucas Nogueira, 7-0, C, Brazil. Big man who plays with tons of energy and hustle. Not really skilled.
29. Oklahoma City: Tony Snell, 6-7, SG, New Mexico. Does enough of everything well, especially play hard.
30. Phoenix: Ricky Ledo, 6-6, SG, Providence. Nice upside, but a little inconsistent on both ends.
31. Cleveland: Erick Green, 6-3, PG/SG, Virginia Tech
32. Oklahoma City: Glen Rice Jr., 6-6, SG, D-League
33. Cleveland: Giannis Adetokoubo, 6-9, SF, Greece
34. Houston: Shane Larkin, 6-0, PG, Miami
35. Philadelphia: Archie Goodwin, 6-5, SG, Kentucky
