NBA mock draft: Take 5, Round 2

Mock draft 2010:

31. New Jersey Nets – Avery Bradley, SG, Texas: The Tacoma, Wash., native was a touted recruit in high school but didn’t overwhelm as a freshman at Texas. He averaged 11.6 points, shot a bewildering 54.5 percent at the foul line and slumped late in the season. Will teams jump at the chance to draft a 6-2 shooting guard who wasn’t very accurate with his shot?

32. Oklahoma City Thunder – Trevor Booker, SF, Clemson: Booker knew how to fill up a stat sheet. He led the Tigers in scoring (15.2 points) and rebounds (8.4) as a senior and finished second on the team in assists. He has a power forward’s game but measured just 6-foot-7½.

33. Sacramento Kings – Jarvis Varnado, PF, Mississippi State: The 6-9 forward finished his career as the NCAA’s all-time blocked shot leader with 564 and was named SEC defensive player of the year three times. Last season, he averaged 13.8 points, 10.3 rebounds and 4.7 blocks.

34. Portland Trail Blazers Greivis Vasquez, PG/SG, Maryland: Native of Venezuela was still learning English when he first enrolled at Maryland and went on to become the school’s No. 2 all-time scorer behind Juan Dixon(notes).

35. Washington Wizards – Samardo Samuels, PF, Louisville: Born in Jamaica, the 6-9 Samuels moved to the New York area at age 15. Last year as a sophomore, he averaged 15.3 points and 7.0 rebounds for the Cardinals.

36. Detroit Pistons – Jerome Jordan, C, Tulsa: Another Jamaica native, Jordan got a late start in basketball, and when he moved to Florida for his senior year in high school, he was ruled ineligible and never played in games. The 7-1 center averaged 15.4 points, 9.1 rebounds and 2.4 blocks last season.

37. Milwaukee Bucks – Darington Hobson, SF, New Mexico: He showed some nice versatility during his lone season in Albuquerque, averaging 15.8 points, 9.1 rebounds and 4.6 assists. Before that, Hobson attended five high schools in five years, including prep school in Decatur, Ill., then spent two years at junior college.

38. New York Knicks – Gani Lawal, PF, Georgia Tech: He measured 6-9 in shoes and didn’t fare all that well in the athletic tests at the predraft camp, which should cause him to fall into the second round. Lawal averaged 15.1 points as a sophomore before Derrick Favors showed up.

39. New York Knicks – Miroslav Raduljica, C, FMP Zelznik Beograd (Serbia): This 7-footer was fairly productive in the Adriatic League, averaging 13.7 points and 6.4 rebounds last winter in 23 games.

40. Indiana Pacers – Devin Ebanks, SF, West Virginia: He’s not much of a scorer or 3-point shooter, but Ebanks had a knack for grabbing offensive rebounds in college and was a solid defender during West Virginia’s run to the Final Four.

41. Miami Heat – Solomon Alabi, C, Florida State: Nigeria native is 7-1 and an inspirational success story. But he’s not much of an athlete and NBA teams are wondering if he can compete against the best competition.

42. Miami Heat – Jerome Randle, PG, California: This ultra-quick, 5-10 guard was the Pac-10 player of the year and became Cal’s all-time leading scorer. In addition to averaging 18.6 points, he shot 93.3 percent from the foul line.

43. Los Angeles Lakers – Eliot Williams, SG, Memphis: Williams spent one year at Duke and one year at Memphis, averaging 17.9 points last season. He pulled out of the predraft camp because of a knee injury, which his agent insisted was minor.

44. Milwaukee Bucks – Stanley Robinson, PF, Connecticut: Midway through his UConn career, Robinson became academically ineligible and spent several months working in a scrap-metal factory, at the urging of coach Jim Calhoun. A good athlete, but an undersized power forward.

45. Minnesota Timberwolves – Mikhail Torrance, PG/SG, Alabama: A sub for two years, Torrance averaged 15.6 points and 5.1 assists as a senior. A tall, fluid guard with a good handle, Torrance also shot 87 percent at the foul line.

46. Phoenix Suns – Dexter Pittman, C, Texas: Pittman reportedly weighed 388 pounds when he left high school. At the predraft camp, he was down to 303 pounds. His 6-11½ frame and 7-6 wingspan should draw some attention in the draft. He averaged 10.4 points as a senior and shot 65.4 percent from the field.

47. Milwaukee Bucks – Sylven Landesburg, SG, Virginia: The 6-6 guard averaged 17.3 points last season as a sophomore at Virgina before being suspended late in the season because of academic issues.

48. Miami Heat – Paulo Prestes, C, CB Murcia (Spain): He might have to stay in Europe for a few years, but Prestes is a tough, wide-bodied center from Brazil. He averaged 9.2 points and 7.3 rebounds last season, his first full year in the Spanish ACB league.

49. San Antonio Spurs – Landry Fields, SF, Stanford: Strong and athletic, Fields went from a lightly used reserve as a sophomore to leading the Pac-10 in both scoring (22.0 points) and rebounds (8.8) as a senior. His father Steve played at Miami, Ohio, in the 1970s.

50. Dallas Mavericks – Willie Warren, SG, Oklahoma: Warren averaged 16.3 points in his second season at Oklahoma but didn’t shoot particularly well (30.9 percent from 3-point range) without Blake Griffin(notes) to distract opposing defenses. He missed the end of the season because of an ankle injury, which might help explain a mundane performance in the predraft camp athletic tests.

51. Oklahoma City Thunder – Lance Stephenson, SG, Cincinnati: This talented 6-5 guard is something of an enigma. During his lone season at Cincinnati, he averaged 12.3 points and shot 22 percent from 3-point range. Most of his highlights found on YouTube took place at Harlem’s Rucker Park.

52. Boston Celtics – Mac Koshwal, PF, DePaul: Sudan native improved every year in college, reaching 16.1 points and 10.1 rebounds as a junior at DePaul despite missing time early in the season with a foot injury.

53. Atlanta Hawks – Jon Scheyer, PG/SG, Duke: The hero of Duke’s title run made tremendous strides during his college career, averaging 18.2 points and 4.9 assists as a senior. He shot below 40 percent from the field in three of his four seasons, though, and has always carried a thin frame.

54. Los Angeles Clippers – Ludovic Vaty, PF, Entente Orleans (France): This 6-9 native of Guadalupe is billed as strong and athletic, with raw skills. He averaged 8.2 points and 4.6 rebounds playing reserve minutes last season in the French league.

55. Utah Jazz – Brian Zoubek, C, Duke His stats were underwhelming, but this 7-footer is hard to move off the block and made a play for the pros with four double-digit rebounding games in the NCAA tournament.

56. Minnesota Timberwolves – Daniel Clark, C, Estudiantes (Spain): The 6-10 Clark is a London native playing in Spain. He averaged 4.3 points in limited minutes last season. His father used to coach the Great Britain women’s national squad and his mother played on the team.

50. Dallas Mavericks – Latavious Williams, SF, Tulsa 66ers: This 6-8 forward was the first player to go from high school to the D-League. He averaged 7.7 points and 7.7 rebounds last season for Tulsa, then picked it up in the playoffs.

58. Los Angeles Lakers – Matt Bouldin, PG/SG, Gonzaga: The 6-5 Bouldin blossomed midway through his college career after some advice from Gonzaga great John Stockton on how to run the team. He averaged 15.6 points and 4.0 assists last season.

59. Orlando Magic – Denis Clemente, PG/SG, Kansas State: Quick guard helped lead K-State to the Elite Eight, averaging 16.6 points and 4.2 assists. The downside is he shot 40.5 percent from the field last season. Puerto Rico native transferred from Miami after his sophomore year.

60. Phoenix Suns – Lazar Hayward, SF, Marquette: The 6-5 Hayward has a shooting guard’s size and a small forward’s game. After averaging 18.1 points and 7.5 rebounds as a senior, he ranks as Marquette’s No. 2 all-time leading scorer.
