Oklahoma City Thunder: Alex Abrines, SG, Spain, 6-5, 1993
With its third pick of the 2013 NBA Draft, Oklahoma City goes the foreign route with a draft-and-stash prospect.
Cleveland Cavaliers: Isaiah Canaan, PG, Murray State, 6-0, Sr.
The Cavaliers don't have a true backup to Kyrie Irving, so Isaiah Canaan makes sense here.
Houston Rockets: Archie Goodwin, SG, Kentucky, 6-5, Fr.
The Rockets don't have much depth at guard behind James Harden and Jeremy Lin, and Archie Goodwin would be a great value this low. Houston GM Daryl Morey loves value.
Portland Trail Blazers: Grant Jerrett, PF, Arizona, 6-10, Fr.
A stretch four who is nowhere near ready to contribute right away, Jerrett will spend some time in the D-League. He does have solid potential though.
Memphis Grizzlies: James Southerland, SF, Syracuse, 6-8, Sr.
With limitless range from the outside, James Southerland could find a home at the next level due to his ability to stretch defenses.
Milwaukee Bucks: Carrick Felix, SG, Arizona State, 6-6, Sr.
By addressing their point guard need in the first round, the Bucks should look to add depth at the two.
Dallas Mavericks: Mike Muscala, PF/C, Bucknell, 6-11, Sr.
The Bison big is an inside/outside threat who adds needed size to the Mavericks.
Portland Trail Blazers: Livio Jean Charles, F, France, 6-9, 1993
With three second-round picks, the Trail Blazers should take at least one foreign prospect. Jean-Charles caught the attention of NBA scouts at the Nike Hoops Summit.
Utah Jazz: Ryan Kelly, PF, Duke, 7-0, Sr.
The former Blue Devil is a stretch four who would add more insurance in case the Jazz loses Jefferson or Millsap via free agency.
Atlanta Hawks: Myck Kabongo, PG, Texas, 6-3, Soph.
The Hawks could be losing Devin Harris in free agency so another point guard would make sense.
Los Angeles Lakers: Kenny Kadji, PF, Miami, 6-10, Sr.
The Lakers could be looking for size inside with Dwight Howard's possible exit. Kenny Kadji has good size and the ability to stretch defenses with his perimeter shooting.
Chicago Bulls: Alexandre Paranhos, SF, Brazil, 6-9, 1992.
The Bulls were one of a few teams to work out the Brazilian. They view him as a draft-and-stash prospect.
Atlanta Hawks: Andre Roberson, SF, Colorado, 6-7, Jr.
A tremendous athlete, Andre Roberson was a prolific rebounder at the college level who is still improving his perimeter shooting.
Orlando Magic: Ray McCallum, PG, Detroit, 6-2, Jr.
Ray McCallum would be an option to backup Jameer Nelson since Beno Udrih is a free agent.
Minnesota Timberwolves: Solomon Hill, SF, Arizona, 6-7, Jr.
The Wildcats senior is a versatile wing who can do a little bit of everything on the floor, but doesn't excel in any one particular area.
Indiana Pacers: Erik Murphy, PF, Florida, 6-9, Sr.
Murphy's inside/outside ability makes him an intriguing prospect despite his lack of NBA athleticism and the Pacers could lose David West via free agency.
Washington Wizards: Marko Todrovic, C, Montenegro, 6-11, 1992
The Wizards go the foreign route with their third pick of the 2013 NBA Draft.
Memphis Grizzlies: Vander Blue, SG, Marquette, 6-5, Jr.
Blue is a tremendous athlete and showed strides this past season with his perimeter game as well. The Grizzlies could use depth at the two since Tony Allen is a free agent.
Detroit Pistons: Nemanja Nedovic, G, Serbia, 6-4, 1991
The Pistons could use their third pick of the 2013 NBA Draft on a "stash overseas" option.
Phoenix Suns: Will Clyburn, G/F, Iowa State, 6-7, Sr.
The Suns add another wing scorer.
San Antonio Spurs: Bojan Dubljvic, PF, Serbia, 6-10, 1991
The Spurs have had luck drafting and stashing late picks in the past ... worth a shot again.
Minnesota Timberwolves: Raul Neto, PG, Brazil, 6-2, 1992
The Timberwolves go the foreign route with their fourth pick of the 2013 NBA Draft.
Memphis Grizzlies: Augusto Lima, F, Brazil, 6-11, 1991
With their third pick of the second round, the Suns select a stretch four who could develop overseas and possibly contribute down the road.
@Black&Gold Problem is that you see Eli and Cobi as solid backups. Truth is that Eli is number 2 and Cobi is our number 3. They aren't backups, but starters. So what you're saying is that we have no true number 2, but see no need in drafting a receiver? What D line depth are you thinking? DE or NT? Have you seen what LT Walton has done? Remember he's only in his second year.
@Steelr Fan 3:16 Coates was supposed to be plan B at number 2 with the uncertainty of Bryant. You make the case that he's a one trick pony and not a 50 catch per season wide-out, so does that scream out as a option for number 2? What gives you hope about Green? I hope he does end up staying on the field, but so far in his career he hasn't be able to do that. I like James, but if he goes down you trust Grimble? He can't block, and hasn't been reliable in the pass game. He did mess his ribs up with a nice touchdown reception a few weeks ago. That still doesn't mean he can pick up and be an impact if James would not be able to go. We have 7 picks in this draft. The first I hope goes OLB. We are good at CB with Burnes and @[email protected] will be challenged hopefully by Golson. Loser of the battle would be a good slot corner. Golson lacks length so they may throw him in the slot role anyways. LT Walton has been more than solid at DE. If Heyward or Tuitt can't go a few weeks during the season then I have faith in LT to get the job done. I like Chickillo and Moates at OLB. They have started and played solid. Williams and Dirty Red at backup ILB is good depth that any team would love. Safety we have Golden and Dangerfield. Both have started any didn't miss a beat. Offensive line? Yeah, we're good there. You say we're good at tight end and WR, so with or final 6 picks we're going what exactly? A RB would be nice with Williams age. A backup that won't see the field unless God forbid Bell gets hurt is a wasted pick anywhere in the top 4 rounds. Maybe 5th would be suffice. That's 2 picks gone and 5 to go. A backup QB of the future would be nice. Four to go. A special teamed lol? Warren, Boswell, and Berry are really good.
Mock I have been developing in various iterations. Did a trade, and was drafting based on data I've gathered via watching college games, NFL games, reading mock drafts, and my own internal evaluations. Please, feedback is always welcome.
