Trevor Mbakwe could be a second-round sleeper in the NBA draft 2013

The 2013 draft is universally regarded as light on top-end talent, but its significant depth has been understated. Smart teams will be able to pick up value later in the first round and well into the second, as there is not a ton of separation in the ability of prospects as you work through that section of the draft. Here are five guy expected to be available in the second round that should be well worth a pick as teams look for the next Gilbert Arenas, Carlos Boozer or Paul Millsap.
