Mock Draft No. 3 (cont.)
21PFSerge IbakaL'Hospitalet (Spain)--6-10220
A long-term prospect who performed well at the recent Reebok camp in Italy, he could stay overseas to continue developing.
22SGCourtney LeeWestern KentuckySr.6-5200
Those who want a top-drawer athlete should look elsewhere, but Lee is an excellent shooter and smart player who can play now.
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.
24G/FChris Douglas-RobertsMemphisJr.6-7200
A scorer whose perimeter shooting needs work, he gives the Sonics a bit of needed toughness.
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.
27PFDarrell ArthurKansasSoph.6-9216
Arthur enters the league with a feel for scoring in the paint as well as an emerging face-up game, and he can run the floor in Chris Paul's offense.
28F/CMarreese SpeightsFloridaSoph.6-10245
Another long-term project up front joins a team that needs size.
29PFD.J. WhiteIndianaSr.6-9251
White will hope to work his way into the mix as the Pistons begin to remake their roster this summer.
30CDeVon HardinCaliforniaSr.6-11250
Amid long-term concerns about Kendrick Perkins' shoulder, the Celtics will begin developing another true center.
