Mock Draft No. 3 (cont.)
11PGD.J. AugustinTexasSoph.5-11171
Is he too small? The Pacers' dire need for a point guard persuades them to gamble on Augustin.
12PFAnthony RandolphLSUFr.6-10197
Sacramento invests in Randolph's upside as a potential second coming of Chris Bosh.
13SFDonte' GreeneSyracuseFr.6-9225
Do they dare take Serge Ibaka this high? Instead, they grab this athletic frontcourt shooter who was coveted by the Warriors.

The Warriors settle for this scoring big man with perimeter range, a nice fit in Don Nelson's system.

The Suns go with a winner in Rush, who should blend into their aging rotation.
16CDeAndre JordanTexas A&MFr.6-11250
When in doubt, go big. Jordan has lots of upside, though he played limited minutes in his one college season.
17CRobin LopezStanfordSoph.7-0245
His twin is the better scorer, but this Lopez will be a solid defender while helping to reduce Chris Bosh's minutes at center.
