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.
I think you are missing one BIG cut and that's Jason Peters. He takes too many penalties and is being paid way too much (cap number is $11.7 million I believe). Cutting clears $10.7 million in cap space. I just don't think they can keep him around with that cap number.
PIT= NE D has not gone up an offense even close to this, Bell is awesome and if NE stacks the box then it goes to Brown and PITS D will pressure Brady Big, all day and this kid Dupree OLB who started week 14 and has 4.5 sacks looks like a winner!
This is the first draft that I actually have taken time scouting and looking into the players and teams. But again, it is still really early and a lot more scouting and more things need to happen in the process in order to get me a basis to go on. In this particular mock I predicted the picks based on where I think the SHOULD go not what I think they WILL Do. I will do drafts like those but not in this one.
