2010 NBA Mock Draft (cont.)
11CCole AldrichKansasJr.6-11245
A solid center who has some fight to his game, Aldrich has limited shooting range and he isn't a leaper. But he'll provide defense and frontcourt depth to a franchise in desperate need of size.
12SFStanley RobinsonConnecticutSr.6-9210
He can run with this team and has the potential to defend and rebound. The Grizzlies will welcome his athleticism -- whether or not they re-sign Rudy Gay.
13PFLarry SandersVCUJr.6-11235
Don't view the athletic big man as a potential replacement for Chris Bosh; Sanders isn't of that class. But he can score in transition and could ultimately learn to complement Andrea Bargnani up front.
14SGXavier HenryKansasFr.6-6220
Henry will score as a rookie within the offense -- he isn't among the many do-it-yourself athletes. But he'll help defensively and he's not a bad passer -- traits the Rockets covet from role players.
15SFDamion JamesTexasSr.6-7225
An aggressive and versatile defender, he'll fit into the program Scott Skiles is building in Milwaukee. He rebounds and finishes strongly in traffic, and Brandon Jennings makes it possible for the Bucks to live with James' lack of passing skills.
16CDaniel OrtonKentuckyFr.6-10255
What are the odds of Minnesota's selecting two Kentucky centers? The Wolves are taking the long-term view to rebuilding and Orton will need time. He has the size, hands and toughness to become a low-post center.
17PFPatrick PattersonKentuckyJr.6-9235
Patterson is a smart, skilled scorer with a post-up game, which has long been a need in Chicago. His strengths don't include defense and rebounding, but the Bulls have Joakim Noah to do those things.
18PG/SGEric BledsoeKentuckyFr.6-1190
A long-armed combo guard to come off the bench as a scorer and defender. He may never be a point guard, but the ball is usually in Dwyane Wade's hands anyway.
19PG/SGWillie WarrenOklahomaSoph.6-4199
His stock dropped this year, but the Celtics will latch on to his ability to run pick-and-roll and create his own shot from the three-point line and in. Questions about his attitude are worth the risk of landing him this late in the draft.
20SFQuincy PondexterWashingtonSr.6-6215
San Antonio is always looking for shooters and here's another one who can also handle the ball and attack the offensive glass. A decent defender who has upside as a college senior.
