Final Mock Draft (cont.)
21 C Alexis Ajinca Hyeres-Toulon (France) -- 7-1 240
A versatile big man to help rebuild the Nets' frontcourt.
22 SG Courtney Lee Western Kentucky Sr. 6-5 200
Those who want a top-drawer athlete should look elsewhere, but Lee is an excellent shooter and smart player who can play now.
23 PF Serge Ibaka L'Hospitalet (Spain) -- 6-10 220
A long-term prospect who performed well at the recent Reebok camp in Italy, he could stay overseas to continue developing.
24 SF Donte' Greene Syracuse Fr. 6-9 225
Young, talented shooter could develop into a terrific frontcourt weapon.
25 PF Jason Thompson Rider Sr. 6-11 250
Versatile big man who has been linked as high as No. 14 to Golden State.
26 PF D.J. White Indiana Sr. 6-9 251
White gives them muscle up front to eventually replace free agent Kurt Thomas.
27 C Omer Asik Fenerbache Ulker (Turkey) -- 6-11 230
The Blazers bought this pick from New Orleans to draft a project and stash him in Europe; Asik could be that guy.
28 PF Darrell Arthur Kansas Soph. 6-9 216
Arthur enters the league with a feel for scoring in the paint.
29 G/F Chris Douglas-Roberts Memphis Jr. 6-7 200
A solid pickup for a team looking to add depth regardless of position.
30 F/C Marreese Speights Florida Soph. 6-10 245
Like the Spurs at No. 26, the Celtics would prefer to unload this pick.
