Mock Draft No. 2 (cont.)
 
21PFSerge IbakaL'Hospitalet (Spain)--6-10220
He came out of the Reebok camp in Italy this week as a sure first-round pick. Kiki Vandeweghe likes building with upside athletes and Ibaka could make the Nets' general manager and team president Rod Thorn look very smart in three or four years.
22G/FChris Douglas-RobertsMemphisJr.6-7200
A scorer through and through, though his perimeter shooting needs work. He gives the Magic a bit of needed toughness.
23CRoy HibbertGeorgetownSr.7-2275
Hibbert fills Utah's need for size up front. He'll be a solid backup center and fit nicely in their half-court offense.
24PFJ.J. HicksonNorth Carolina StateFr.6-9242
A hungry inside player who could provide the Sonics with rebounding and toughness for the long term.
25CAlexis AjincaHyeres-Toulon (France)--7-1240
The 20-year-old showed big improvement this year. He's long and nimble with perimeter shooting skills, but he needs to keep building his strength.
26COmer AsikFenerbache Ulker (Turkey)--6-11230
Asik emerged as a late first-rounder this season. The Spurs can let him continue to develop in Turkey to keep them out of luxury-tax territory.
27SFChase BudingerArizonaSoph.6-7203
An athletic, skilled shooter and excellent blend-in player, he'll provide another player off the bench to a team looking for more depth.
28PFJoey DorseyMemphisSr.6-7265
A local guy who will work his way into the rotation while providing some muscle off the bench.
29PFD.J. WhiteIndianaSr.6-9251
Another big man who will hope to work his way into the mix as the Pistons begin to remake their roster this summer.
30SGJ.R. GiddensNew MexicoSr.6-5208
This productive swingman might be able to provide scoring as a backup to Paul Pierce and Ray Allen next year.
