2010 NBA Mock Draft: Version 4.0 (cont.)
11SFGordon HaywardButlerSoph.6-9207
They need to replace Peja Stojakovic sooner than later and Hayward will contribute as a rookie.
12SFPaul GeorgeFresno StateSoph.6-8210
A scoring wing who provides some insurance against the potential departure of free agent Rudy Gay.
13PFPatrick PattersonKentuckyJr.6-9235
To prepare for Chris Bosh's departure, the Raptors need to invest in big men, and this draft is deep in size. Patterson has soft hands and an innate ability to finish with his back to the basket.
14CCole AldrichKansasJr.6-11245
He's the insurance policy who will be a solid backup should Yao Ming return to full health. Aldrich will fill his role as a banger in the post who can run the pick-and-roll and block the occasional shot.
15SGXavier HenryKansasFr.6-6220
Henry may not be able to create his own shot, but Brandon Jennings will do that for him. Henry has range out to the three-point line, and he can pass as well as defend.
16PFLarry SandersVCUJr.6-11235
Sanders is raw, but he is long and explosive with the promise of a back-to-the-basket game.
17SFDamion JamesTexasSr.6-7225
Bulls will be picking on behalf of Washington. This tweener forward from a major program will help fill out the Wizards frontcourt.
18PG/SGEric BledsoeKentuckyFr.6-1190
He could be the choice regardless of whether Thunder trade this pick to Indiana. Bledsoe is a combo guard with point-guard potential.
19SGJordan CrawfordXavierSoph.6-4195
He carried Xavier as a slasher and streaky shooter, and he could get minutes if Tony Allen doesn't return to Boston.
20PFCraig BrackinsIowa StateJr.6-10230
He spaces the floor with a face-up jump shot, a skill-set the Spurs love in their big men.
