2010 NBA Mock Draft: Round 1
2010 NBA Draft Prospect Rankings: C | PF | SF | SG | PG
2011 NBA Mock Draft
2009 NBA Mock Re-Draft
Updated: June 24, 2010 at 7:15 p.m.
  1. New Jersey Nets: Tiny Gallon, PF, Oklahoma, 6-9, Fr.
    The Nets reportedly like Gallon and could use their third pick of the 2010 NBA Draft to take a flier on the young prospect.

  2. Miami Heat: Dominique Jones, G, South Florida, 6-5, Jr.
    Jones would be a steal with the first of Miami’s four second-rounders. Williams, Warren, White and Johnson would all be good values here to help their backcourt depth.

  3. Sacramento Kings: Ryan Richards, F/C, England, 7-0, 1989
    Sacramento could use some depth in their backcourt, but apparently really likes Richards.

  4. Portland Trail Blazers: Elliot Williams, G, Memphis, 6-4, So.
    Maybe I’m totally missing the boat on Williams, but I think he will available here meaning Portland, who is reportedly very high on him, won’t have to use their first-round selection to get him.

  5. Washington Wizards: Quincy Pondexter, SF, Washington, 6-7, Sr.
    Quincy Pondexter could go late first round and would great value here for the Wizards who are likely losing Josh Howard this offseason.

  6. Detroit Pistons: Gani Lawal, PF, Georgia Tech, 6-9, Jr.
    Lawal gives the Pistons more new blood up front which they desperately need.

  7. Milwaukee Bucks: Jarvis Varnado, PF, Mississippi State, 6-9, Sr.
    With three second-round picks now, the Bucks will have to address their need for some depth up front and Varnado is college basketball�s all-time leading shot blocker.

  8. New York Knicks: Armon Johnson, PG, Nevada, 6-3, Jr.
    With back-to-back second-round picks, the Knicks take the top guys on their big board since they need help all over.

  9. New York Knicks: Terrico White, SG, Mississippi, 6-5, So.
    Sticking with the best available player theory, White is loaded with talent. I’ve also read in the past day that the Knicks are reportedly very high on Sylven Landesburg and Brian Zoubek.

  10. Indiana Pacers: Devin Ebanks, SF, West Virginia, 6-9, So.
    If he had any sort of jump shot, Ebanks would be a first-round lock but seems to have little draft buzz right now.

  11. Miami Heat: Willie Warren, G, Oklahoma, 6-4, So.
    Warren was once a lottery prospect but struggled with his shot and injuries this past season causing his stock to plummet. He would be a great value here for the Heat.

  12. Miami Heat: Jerome Jordan, C, Tulsa, 7-0, Sr.
    The Heat need to add some size with one of their four second-round picks.

  13. Los Angeles Lakers: Da’Sean Butler, G/F, West Virginia, 6-7, Sr.
    Da’Sean Butler knows how to win games, which is what the Lakers do. He could contribute off the bench right away due to his incredible basketball IQ and ability to shoot the basketball.

  14. Milwaukee Bucks: Trevor Booker, PF, Clemson, 6-7, Sr.
    Some muscle and depth inside which the Bucks need.

  15. Minnesota Timberwolves: Miroslav Raduljica, C, Serbia, 7-0, 1988
    Raduljica reportedly blew off a workout for a bunch of NBA teams which hurts his stock. But with five (possibly six) picks, the Timberwolves can take a flier on him.

  16. Phoenix Suns: Stanley Robinson, SF, UConn, 6-9, Sr.
    The Suns need to prepare for Amare’s departure and Robinson could fit with their up-tempo style.

  17. Milwaukee Bucks: Sherron Collins, PG, Kansas, 5-11, Sr.
    I would expect the Bucks to find a possible backup to Brandon Jennings with one of their three second-rounders.

  18. Miami Heat: Lazar Hayward, G/F, Marquette, 6-6, Sr.
    Hayward’s combination of experience, unselfishness, and outside shooting could land him bench minutes in Miami.

  19. San Antonio Spurs: Dexter Pittman, C, Texas, 6-11, Sr.
    The Spurs could use a big body inside to help take some of the beating away from Tim Duncan.

  20. Dallas Mavericks: Artsiom Parakhouski, C, Radford, 6-11, Sr.
    The Mavericks need some options down low since Brendan Haywood is a free agent, and Erick Dampier and Dirk Nowitzki could be gone as well.

  21. Oklahoma City Thunder: Thomas Huertel, PG, France, 6-1, 1989
    The Thunder are best suited going the foreign route with this pick.

  22. Boston Celtics: Brian Zoubek, C, Duke, 7-1, Sr.
    Kevin Garnett and Rasheed Wallace aren’t getting any younger and Kendrick Perkins is a free agent next summer, so adding a young big man makes sense.

  23. Atlanta Hawks: Derrick Caracter, PF, UTEP, 6-9, Jr.
    The Hawks need to add some size and Derrick Caracter is a load inside.

  24. Los Angeles Clippers: Mikhail Torrance, G, Alabama, 6-5, Sr.
    The Clips need to add some depth in the backcourt.

  25. Utah Jazz: Jon Scheyer, G, 6-5, Duke, Sr.
    A three-point gunner who could potentially replace free agent Kyle Korver.

  26. Minnesota Timberwolves: Paulo Prestes, C, Spain, 6-11, 1988
    A foreign prospect who can continue to develop overseas and possibly help the Timberwolves out in the future.

  27. Indiana Pacers: Luke Harangody, PF, Notre Dame, 6-8, Sr.
    Luke Harangody isn’t the most athletic player, but plays hard and can knock down open shots and seems like someone Larry Bird would want.

  28. Los Angeles Lakers: Mac Koshwal, PF, DePaul, 6-10, Jr.
    The Lakers could use some depth up front especially with Andrew Bynum’s injury concerns. I think Koshwal could be a sleeper second-round steal.

  29. Orlando Magic: Manny Harris, G, Michigan, 6-5, Jr.
    The Magic go best available and Harris is a good value this low.

  30. Phoenix Suns: Charles Garcia, F, Seattle U, 6-9, Jr.
    Another option for the Suns with Amare likely leaving town.
