Final Mock Draft (cont.)
11 G Jerryd Bayless Arizona Fr. 6-3 204
Huge surprise if he falls this far, but the Pacers snap up this Ben Gordon-like scorer.
12 PF Anthony Randolph LSU Fr. 6-10 197
The Kings are always difficult to read, but the guess is they go for the long-term upside here.
13 C Robin Lopez Stanford Soph. 7-0 245
The Nets want him, and they can get him by swapping picks with Portland.
14 C Kosta Koufos Ohio State Fr. 7-0 265
Was Jason Thompson a smokescreen? Koufos fits Don Nelson's system.
15 G/F Brandon Rush Kansas Jr. 6-6 210
The Suns benefit from swingman with upside who can also contribute as a rookie.
16 C DeAndre Jordan Texas A&M Fr. 6-11 250
This big man fits with Philadelphia's emphasis on length and athleticism.
17 C Roy Hibbert Georgetown Sr. 7-2 275
A true big man to provide size in the post-Jermaine O'Neal era.
18 C JaVale McGee Nevada Soph. 7-0 241
Another athletic big man goes to a team that needs size.
19 SF Nicolas Batum Le Mans (France) -- 6-8 210
If they can't take McGee, they settle on this versatile swingman.
20 PF J.J. Hickson North Carolina State Fr. 6-9 242
A hungry inside player, though they're also considering Kyle Weaver here.
