2009 NBA Mock Draft: Version 2.0 (cont.)

 
21PFJames JohnsonWake ForestSoph.6-8257
Look for the Hornets to deal this pick and avoid paying a rookie salary. But Johnson would be a nice fit as a forward who is ready to help immediately.
22PFGani LawalGeorgia TechSoph.6-9229
If the Mavericks don't move up in the draft, they could settle for the athleticism and length of Lawal, a long-term project in the frontcourt. Dallas is seeking explosive athletes.
23PFDerrick BrownXavierSr.6-8225
The Kings will be looking for athletic potential as they establish their new up-tempo style. Brown eventually could help them there.
24PFTyler Hansbrough North CarolinaSr.6-10234
There's a good chance he'll go in the late teens because he'll be a reliable, hard-working second-unit player. If he's still available here, look for Portland to snap him up.
25SFOmri CasspiMaccabi Tel Aviv (Israel)--6-9211
The 20-year-old has played in a lot of big Euroleague games for Maccabi. He has the hard-nosed experience that the Thunder will appreciate in a rookie.
26SGWayne EllingtonNorth CarolinaJr.6-5202
At this stage of the draft, you're lucky to find someone to make the rotation. Could Ellington's shooting help the Bulls in a backup role to Ben Gordon? His chances for minutes would improve if Gordon were to leave as a free agent.
27SGTerrence Williams LouisvilleSr.6-6213
He would give them toughness, perimeter defense and help on the glass -- and the Grizzlies are in great need of those qualities.
28PGRodrigue BeauboisCholet (France)--6-2182
If the Timberwolves keep this pick, they could invest in this quick French point guard, 21, and let him remain in Europe to develop.
29SGChase BudingerArizonaJr.6-7206
Superior athlete has the ability to stretch defenses with his deep shooting (190 three-pointers in 100 college games).
30SFVictor ClaverPamesa Valencia (Spain)--6-9224
The Cavs could invest in the 20-year-old and leave him in Europe to develop while they lessen their luxury-tax demands next season.
