NBA Draft 2012 : NBA Draft Combine Results

NBA Draft 2012 : NBA Draft Combine Results

First Round

1. Anthony Davis | 6-10 | 222 | PF | Kentucky | 19

Shocker. The Hornets land the clear #1 player in the draft to begin the club's post-CP3 rebuilding efforts. You could make an argument that Davis is now officially the best shot blocker in the NBA. His defense and rebounding will help him make an immediate impact and likely put him on All-Defensive Teams for the next decade or so. However, his offensive game is still not incomplete. The consensus is that it will come around, but how much he develops on the offensive end of the floor will determine whether he’s an elite superstar or merely a great player. -Seth Sommerfeld
Anthony Davis

2. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist | 6-7 | 233 | SF | Kentucky | 18

Now that the obvious is out of the way, the most chaotic draft in years can commence. The Bobcats throw a curveball at No. 2, taking Anthony Davis's National Champion wingman, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. He plays so remarkably hard on every possession, but his glue-guy skills might be wasted on that garbage heap of a Bobcats roster. He's not the sort of player who creates his own offense, and his jumper's mechanics need some honing, but he has All-NBA potential on the defensive end, and he will bring a much-needed competitive streak to a Charlotte squad who set an NBA record in futility last season. He's a major upgrade at the small forward position, and he'll be asked to cover for some brutal perimeter defenders from day one. -Nick Prevenas
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

3. Bradley Beal | 6-4 | 202 | SG | Florida | 19

Thanks to the Bobcats standing pat, the Wizards get the player they’ve long been targeting. Beal is the prototypical SG prospect, possessing the size, athleticism, and shooting stroke that teams crave at the 2-guard spot. The one red flag with Beal is that he simply wasn’t great in his one year at Florida. His play for the Gators could best be described as “solid.” He’s a good fit for the Wizards and he’s certainly got All-Star talent, but he needs to start showing his talent on the court in order to justify his Top 3 draft position. -Seth Sommerfeld
Bradley Beal

4. Dion Waiters | 6-4 | 215 | SG | Syracuse | 20

The Cavs have a nice foundation with Kyrie Irving and Tristan Thompson in the fold, but they still have a serious hole on the wing. Instead of selecting Harrison Barnes (a player they reportedly loved going into last year's draft), the Cavs reach on the draft's highest riser in Dion Waiters. He was never brought in for a workout and he had more than his fair share of “attitude problems” at Syracuse, but he can flat-out score. He plays with an edge and he has a knack for getting to the rim. He has an NBA body and a solid jumper, but he will have to adjust his game to complement Irving's dribble-heavy style. It's a bit of a head-scratcher at No. 4 given the talent on the board (so was Thompson last year), but Waiters should be an immediate contributor. -Nick Prevenas
Dion Waiters

5. Thomas Robinson | 6-9 | 244 | PF | Kansas | 21

The Kings now have a formidable front line. Teams aren’t going to be psyched about going up against the combo of Thomas Robinson and DeMarcus Cousins. Robinson is the safest pick in the lottery outside of Anthony Davis, but that doesn’t mean doesn’t have a high ceiling. His game has no real flaws and has the perfect blend of size and athleticism for a power forward. Maybe more importantly he’s got a relentless motor and work ethic that hopefully will rub off on the rest of his Kings teammates. -Seth Sommerfeld
Thomas Robinson

6. Damian Lillard | 6-3 | 189 | PG | Weber St. | 21

The Blazers have been driving the Damian Lillard bandwagon all summer, so it's no surprise to see him taken here at No. 6. He reportedly blew Portland's staff away with his workout, and he posted surprisingly phenomenal combine numbers (testing similarly to Derrick Rose). Lillard is a scoring point guard, but he has a passer's mentality and a high basketball IQ. He's a bit of a late bloomer, and it should give Portland fans pause that the 22-year-old Lillard feasted on subpar competition, but Lillard possesses all of the skills and measurables one hopes to find in a starting point guard – Nick Prevenas
Damian Lillard

7. Harrison Barnes | 6-8 | 228 | SF | North Carolina | 20

Barnes has taken a lot of abuse since his somewhat disappointing NCAA Tournament performance and it’s overshadowed how great a player he really is. Maybe he’s not the player that he was hyped up to be coming out of high school, but there is no doubt Barnes can score. He can flat out shoot and moves with tremendous fluidity, though he does struggle to create his own shot. If Steph Curry can stay healthy, Golden State could have a tremendous scoring combo. -Seth Sommerfeld
Harrison Barnes

8. Terrence Ross | 6-7 | 197 | SG/SF | Washington | 21

The Raptors look at this as their second lottery pick, with last year's pick Jonas Valanciunas set to join them. With him in the fold, Toronto felt like they could pass on the tumbling Andre Drummond and take one of the draft's most athletic wingmen in Terrence Ross. He was trapped on a dysfunctional Washington team last year, so many folks didn't get a chance to see just how good Ross really is. He has remarkably deep range on his jumper and he loves to get out and run on the break. Think of him as a high-character, smarter, defensive-minded, doesn't-fade-away-on-every-jumper-for-no-reason JR Smith. Strong pick. - Nick Prevenas
Terrence Ross

9. Andre Drummond | 6-11 | 279 | PF/C | UConn | 18

Drummond falling to Detroit at #9 was the dream scenario Motor City basketball fans. Drummond has a downright freakish combination of athleticism and size, and paring him with a terrific passing big like Greg Monroe can only help his development. There’s an argument to be made that Drummond has an even higher ceiling than Anthony Davis. The question with Drummond is his work ethic and motor, but if he starts giving his all, there are going to be lots of GMs answering questions about why they passed on him. –Seth Sommerfeld
Andre Drummond

10. Austin Rivers | 6-5 | 203 | SG | Duke | 19

With the Hornets' second lottery pick of the night, they select one of the draft's most divisive prospects in Austin Rivers. Glass-half-full: Rivers is one of the most confident, intelligent scorers in this draft class. He has range on his jumper, and he can create his own shot off the dribble. He showed a knack for coming through in the clutch at Duke. At the very least, Doc Rivers's son should develop into a Jason Terry-esque sixth man. Glass-half-empty: Rivers is a bit of a black hole. When he gets the ball, it usually doesn't find its way anywhere other than the rim. The tricks that worked for him in high school likely won't work against bigger, more athletic NBA defenders. He bares a strong resemblance to Jerryd Bayless in this respect. But with Davis and (probably) Eric Gordon already in the fold, Rivers will be given a terrific opportunity to blossom for a franchise on the rebound. - Nick Prevenas
Austin Rivers

11. Meyers Leonard | 7-1 | 250 | C | Illinois | 20

Meyers Leonard is a somewhat risky pick, but for the Blazers it’s a risk worth taking. At times Leonard looked like a highlight machine while throwing down big dunks and other times he looked downright lost. He’s got athletic gifts in a 7’1” frame and a decent shooting touch, but needs to build up more strength to play in the post with NBA bigs. He likely isn’t ready to be a starter from Day 1, but if the Blazers give him time to develop he could be special. –Seth Sommerfeld
Meyers Leonard

12. Jeremy Lamb | 6-5 | 179 | SG | UConn | 20

There has to be a trade coming, right? The Houston Rockets own three mid-first-round picks in hopes of collecting enough assets for a Dwight Howard rental, so it's hard to say which of these players will actually remain here. Jeremy Lamb is an intriguing wing player, but he seems to duplicate most of what Kevin Martin brings. Lamb's sleepy expression doesn't do his game justice. He's a skilled, well-rounded two-guard with terrific range, good size (if a little thin) and phenomenal length (the wingspan of a power forward). That length and quickness give him the potential to become a stellar defender, and as he gets stronger, his game will develop nicely. - Nick Prevenas
Jeremy Lamb

13. Kendall Marshall | 6-4 | 197 | PG | North Carolina | 20

Wave goodbye to Steve Nash Suns fans, Kendall Marshall is your PG now. Marshall is the best distributing PG to come into the league since Ricky Rubio was drafted in ’09. There have been questions about his scoring ability, but don’t read too much into that. While he doesn’t fit the mold of the modern freakishly athletic PG (like Derrick Rose or Russell Westbrook), he should be able to make all the players around him better. –Seth Sommerfeld
Kendall Marshall

14. John Henson | 6-10 | 216 | PF | North Carolina | 21

The Bucks have Samuel Dalembert, Ekpe Udoh and Larry Sanders in tow, so why not add another bouncey, long-armed shotblocker without much offensive skill? John Henson was one of the nation's premier shotblockers in college, but he is painfully thin for a post player and will get muscled out of the paint until he adds bulk. He has great potential, due to his freakish wingspan, high IQ and soft hands, but that potential will remain untapped until he gets stronger. Milwaukee is going to have to be patient with Henson. - Nick Prevenas
John Henson

15. Moe Harkless | 6-8 | 207 | SF | St. Johns | 19

Moe (ahem… Maurice) Harkless isn’t a need pick for the Sixers, but he’s a great pick none the less. He’s the rare balanced player with tremendous upside. He immediately provides a very deep team with even more depth and could take over the small forward position when Andre Iguodala eventually leaves town. –Seth Sommerfeld
Moe Harkless

16. Royce White | 6-8 | 261 | SF | Iowa St. | 21

The Rockets continue Mission: Asset Accumulation with the most intriguing player in this draft class: Royce White. Simply put, there isn't anyone quite like him. He's either a more disciplined Boris Diaw, a nicer Anthony Mason, or a less athletic Chris Webber. Very few players at that size (6-8, 245) with that strength can pass and handle like him. He can do anything except for shoot his free throws. He has a well-documented list of off-the-court issues, including an anxiety disorder. He appears to have the off-court problems under control, and he'll bring a unique dimension to whichever team he plays for. Anyone with his wide array of skills has a place in the NBA. - Nick Prevenas
Royce White

17. Tyler Zeller | 7-0 | 247 | PF/C | North Carolina | 22

Cleveland gave up quite a lot (24, 33 and 34) in order to get a big man who can run the floor with Kyrie Irving. Zeller shines in the open floor as he possesses fantastic quickness for a 7-footer. His offensive game is polished, but he’s still a project on the defensive end of the floor. He certainly needs to get stronger to hang with NBA bigs. In a draft with tremendous depth, Cleveland may regret trading away three picks for Zeller. –Seth Sommerfeld
Tyler Zeller

18. Terrence Jones | 6-9 | 252 | SF/PF | Kentucky | 20

Unless the Rockets plan on using a hockey-style line-change substitution pattern, someone is getting traded. But if Terrence Jones ends up staying in Houston, he'll bring a hard-nosed toughness – something few people expected to say about him after a freshman season that saw his effort come and go. On last year's title team, Jones helped anchor the defensive rebounding for Kentucky, while still showing the same versatile skill-set on offense. He measured out tall enough to play the 4-spot in the NBA, where he could provide a lot of mismatch problems. Think of him as having Lamar Odom's ceiling (Lakers version) with Lamar Odom's floor (Mavericks version). - Nick Prevenas
Terrence Jones

19. Andrew Nicholson | 6-10 | 234 | PF | St. Bonaventure | 22

Few guys can match Nicholson’s combo of shooting and size. His basketball IQ is high and he can block shots and rebound at a decent clip. While he’s not going to blow anyone away athletically, he has tremendous length and all the tools to excel in an NBA pick-and-roll game. –Seth Sommerfeld
Andrew Nicholson

20. Evan Fournier | 6-7 | 204 | SG | France | 19

The Denver Nuggets select the best player available in the weakest crop of overseas prospects in quite some time. Evan Fournier was the only international player to come into this draft with a first-round grade, and if he elects to come over right away, he'll provide depth behind Arron Afflalo at the 2-guard spot. He's a steady, crafty offensive player with a bunch of herky-jerky tricks at his disposal, and he possesses great size for his position (6-7, 200). He's an average-at-best athlete and will struggle to defend his position, but he's only 19, so he still has room to develop. - Nick Prevenas
Evan Fournier

21. Jared Sullinger | 6-9 | 268 | PF | Ohio State | 20

Sullinger’s stock has taken a nose dive since he decided not to declare for last year’s draft, but being drafted by the Celtics could work out for him. He no longer will face the pressure of being “the guy” that would’ve come with being a Top 10 pick. His post skills on the offensive end are elite, it’s just a matter of whether he’ll be able to effectively use them as a below-the-rim player in the NBA. If he can develop a more consistent mid-range jumper he could end up being a valuable piece off the bench as the Celtics make a few more title runs to close out the Pierce/KG era. –Seth Sommerfeld
Jared Sullinger

22. Fab Melo | 7-0 | 255 | C | Syracuse | 22

The Celtics, still in need of serious depth on the front line, take the polar opposite of Jared Sullinger at 22 in Fab Melo. He is very limited offensively, but he has the body and athleticism of an NBA center. He can defend and block shots as long as his stamina holds up, and he has plenty of room to grow. On half of the teams in the league, a guy like Fab Melo often turns into a stiff, but with the Celtics and Kevin Garnett helping show him the ropes, he could become another Kendrick Perkins. - Nick Prevenas
Fab Melo

23. John Jenkins | 6-4 | 212 | SG | Vanderbilt | 21

The Hawks land the best pure shooter in the draft (last year he shot 10% better from beyond the arc than Bradley Beal did). He makes up for his lack of physical tools with a high basketball IQ, specifically knowing how to play off the ball. He might have some issues defending the 2-guard spot on the NBA level, but he should have a long career as a 3-point specialist. –Seth Sommerfeld
John Jenkins

24. Jared Cunningham | 6-5 | 188 | SG | Oregon St. | 21

The Mavericks moved down seven spots to take Oregon State's Jared Cunningham, a bouncey, strong 2-guard who should give them some much-needed depth in the backcourt. He's an athletic slasher who thrives in the open court and loves to play above the rim. His jumper steadily improved during college, and he has the physical tools to become a lockdown defender. He has to improve his overall offensive skill level to carve out a niche in the NBA (particularly his handle), but his physical gifts and attitude give him a good shot to contribute right away. - Nick Prevenas
Jared Cunningham

25. Tony Wroten | 6-6 | 203 | PG/SG | Washington | 19

The Grizzlies didn’t pick for need, but that’s because Tony Wroten could end up being one of the steals of the draft. Let’s get this out of the way: He can’t shoot. That said, he brings so many other things to the table. He has an elite skill for getting to the rim (and FT line), ideal size for the position, and is a great passer. He's simply is too talented to fall all the way to 25. –Seth Sommerfeld
Tony Wroten

26. Miles Plumlee | 7-0 | 252 | PF/C | Duke | 23

The Indiana Pacers have undergone a major upheaval in its front office, with Larry Bird and David Morway giving way to Donnie Walsh and Kevin Pritchard. Bird is reportedly still running the draft, but it's never a good sign when a front office enters transition mode immediately before the draft. Case in point: Miles Plumlee just went No. 26. Plumlee blew minds with one of the all-time greatest showings in combine history, but anyone who spent more than 10 minutes watching Duke play this year would tell you that Plumlee simply isn't an NBA player. At best, he's a developmental athlete that could eventually become a backup big man (think Chris Andersen). But right now, Plumlee is a long way away. The Pacers have spent the past handful of seasons making savvy moves. This is a big blunder. - Nick Prevenas
Miles Plumlee

27. Arnett Moultrie | 6-11 | 233 | PF | Mississippi St. | 21

In Moultrie, the Sixers get a hard worker who vastly improved over his four years in college. While not a particularly strong guy for his size (6’11”), Moultrie can crash the boards and his displayed a deft shooting touch. He should fit in well with the Sixers' athletic young core. –Seth Sommerfeld
Arnett Moultrie

28. Perry Jones | 6-11 | 234 | SF/PF | Baylor | 20

Perry Jones III might've been disappointed to see his name plummet so far down the draft board, but he couldn't have asked for a better situation. The Oklahoma City Thunder add one of the top-five raw talents in this draft at the No. 28 pick. Unbelievable. If Jones fulfills even 70 percent of his potential, he'll be a major steal for the Thunder at this spot. He is a jaw-dropping physical specimen with small forward skills in a 6-11 frame. Sound familiar? He played out of position on a chaotic Baylor squad, and he doesn't always give his best effort (in the understatement of the draft). But he's just too talented to pass up here, regardless of whatever knee issue he might have. Picks like these are what separates the Thunder from the rest of the league. - Nick Prevenas
Perry Jones

29. Marquis Teague | 6-2 | 189 | PG | Kentucky | 19

Teague gives the Bulls a solid backup PG who will get plenty of minutes while the team waits for Rose to return from his injury. He’s basically a slightly better version of his brother, Hawks PG Jeff Teague. Quickness is his strength, but he lacks a natural feel for distributing the ball. –Seth Sommerfeld
Marquis Teague

30. Festus Ezeli | 6-11 | 264 | C | Vanderbilt | 22

The Warriors, desperate for anyone who can play a shred of defense, use their second pick of round one to take Vanderbilt's Festus Ezeli as Andrew Bogut insurance. He's a big, strong interior presence with an NBA body. He isn't a stiff offensively, but nobody would ever mistake his game for Hakeem Olajuwon's. At 22, his upside is limited, but he defends well when he's not in foul trouble. What you see is what you get. But guys with this size and strength tend to stick around the NBA for around 7-10 years. - Nick Prevenas
Festus Ezeli

Second Round

31. Jeffery Taylor | 6-7 | 213 | SF | Vanderbilt | 23

Taylor’s one of those guys who does everything well, but nothing spectacularly. He’s an experienced scorer who has some of the best physical tools of any wing in the draft. There’s a case to be made that the Bobcats just drafted the poor man’s version of their 1st round pick MKG. In the 2nd round, that's a great value. –Seth Sommerfeld
Jeffery Taylor

32. Tomas Satoransky | 6-7 | 201 | PG/SG | Czech Republic | 20

The Wizards take Jan Vesley's buddy Tomas Satoransky. He's playing high-level ball in Spain right now, and Washington won't bring him over right away. But by the time he makes his way to the league, the Wiz hope to be getting a well-rounded wing player who can finish at the rim and can play the point in limited stretches. He's still raw, but he's got potential. - Nick Prevenas
Tomas Satoransky

33. Bernard James | 6-10 | 230 | PF | Florida St. | 27

Compared to serving overseas in Iraq, facing up against NBA big men probably seems like no big deal for James. He is a super hard worker who can immediately come in and protect the rim for the Mavs. He’s not going to provide much on the offensive side of the floor, but his intangibles make up for those deficiencies. –Seth Sommerfeld
Bernard James

34. Jae Crowder | 6-6 | 241 | SF/PF | Marquette | 21

Jae Crowder is one of this draft's strongest, toughest players. He was dominant at times at Marquette (Big East POY), but there aren't many 6-foot-5 power forwards in the NBA these days. He'll defend his heart out and play with full effort every second he's on the floor, but he's awfully raw offensively and he'll never make it as a guard or a wing.
Jae Crowder

35. Draymond Green | 6-7 | 236 | SF/PF | Michigan St. | 22

Stat heads love Draymond Green, but it’s still unclear if he has an NBA position or if he’ll be stuck in tweener purgatory. Then again, the Warriors need more guys who fights like Green does. He’s an aggressive scorer with a good mid-range shot and is a great team player. If he doesn’t make it in the league, it won’t be because he didn’t give his all. –Seth Sommerfeld
Draymond Green

36. Orlando Johnson | 6-5 | 224 | SF | UC Santa Barbara | 23

Pick traded to Orlando. Orlando Johson is a high-volume scorer who fills it up from all over the floor, but he didn't play the highest-level competition at UC Santa Barbara. He's got nice size, strength and athleticism for a 2-guard, but he's 23 without much upside left. He'll face an uphill battle to stick in the league, but he can really score. - Nick Prevenas
Orlando Johnson

37. Quincy Acy | 6-8 | 224 | PF | Baylor | 21

It’s rather absurd that the first Quincy drafted from Baylor was Acy and not Miller. That said, it’s not a bad pick. The things that jump out about Acy’s game are his athleticism and defense. He’s a solid shot blocker and runs the floor well in the fast break. –Seth Sommerfeld
Quincy Acy

38. Quincy Miller | 6-10 | 219 | SF | Baylor | 19

Quincy Miller would've been a top-5 recruit coming out of high school so if his knee recovers he steal at 38. He's a 6-10 small forward who can do a bit of everything. He suffered a serious knee injury prior to his time at Baylor, but he is highly skilled with a world of potential. Think Paul George for Miller's upside. - Nick Prevenas
Quincy Miller

39. Khris Middleton | 6-8 | 216 | SG/SF | Texas A&M | 20

Cross-racial comparison alert! We think Khris Middleton compares favorably to Gordon Hayward. He’s a very good shooter with a smooth offensive game. There are question marks about his defense and he probably could’ve used another year at Texas A&M, but he’s got an intriguing skillset. –Seth Sommerfeld
Khris Middleton

40. Will Barton | 6-6 | 174 | SG/SF | Memphis | 21

Will Barton is a long, versatile wing player with a wide array of offensive skills. He's at his best when he's cutting without the ball and attacking the rim. He also has a hard-to-defend, herky-jerky style when matched up in a pick-and-roll scenario. His one major drawback is a lack of strength and bulk. He has the frame to add muscle, but he's only 175 pounds at 6-6. He'll need to hit the weight room to fulfill his potential. - Nick Prevenas
Will Barton

41. Tyshawn Taylor | 6-3 | 180 | PG/SG | Kansas | 22

The Nets finally make a pick in this year’s draft. There’s a lot to love and a lot to hate about Tyshawn Taylor. He’s got 1st round athleticism, but seemed like a hopeless at times mess at times for Kansas. If he can get his head straight, he has the athletic tools to be an explosive offensive threat. –Seth Sommerfeld
Tyshawn Taylor

42. Doron Lamb | 6-4 | 199 | SG | Kentucky | 20

Doron Lamb is a steal at this point in the draft. He is one of the draft's truly great shooters. He gets set and shoots it with no wasted motion. He was Kentucky's most reliable offensive player during their title run, and he should have a Cuttino Mobley-esque NBA career as a sparkplug off the bench. Great pick. - Nick Prevenas
Doron Lamb

43. Mike Scott | 6-8 | 237 | PF | Virginia | 23

Mike Scott has a mature and versatile game. Virginia’s slow-it-down style of play made Scott seem like a worse offensive player than he actually is. While he’s undersized for the power forward position, he’s got a good face up jump shot. –Seth Sommerfeld
Mike Scott

44. Kim English | 6-6 | 192 | SG | Missouri | 23

Borderline NBA prospects need one elite skill to stick in the NBA, and Kim English's is shooting. He has range well beyond the NBA 3-point line, and he plays with such a high basketball IQ that he always seems to find an open spot in the defense, despite his lack of explosiveness. He has good height for a sniper (6-6), so he'll be able to get his shot in spot-up, drive-and-kick situations, but don't ask him to create that shot for himself. - Nick Prevenas
Kim English

45. Justin Hamilton | 7-0 | 260 | C | LSU | 22

Justin Hamilton has great size and a decent shooting touch. That’s about it. His entire game is based around being bigger than the other guys. He lacks athleticism, but it’s not like the Heat are really lacking in that area. –Seth Sommerfeld
Justin Hamilton

46. Darius Miller | 6-7 | 238 | SF | Kentucky | 22

The Hornets make yet another smart pick at 46, taking Anthony Davis's buddy, Darius Miller. The senior was the emotional core of last year's title team, so at the very least, he'll add to Davis's comfort level as they both adjust to the NBA lifestyle. Miller also possesses all of the traits you want in a glue guy (great perimeter shooter, great defender, does “the little things”), so he'll find his way into the Hornets' playing rotation on day one. - Nick Prevenas
Darius Miller

47. Kevin Murphy | 6-6 | 195 | SG | Tennessee Tech | 22

Murphy is the shooting sleeper of the draft. He has great length and a killer step-back jump shot. You may never have seen him play at Tennessee Tech, but he has a chance to stick in the league for a long time as a bench scorer. –Seth Sommerfeld
Kevin Murphy

48. Kostas Papanikolaou | 6-9 | 230 | SF | Greece | 21

This is always the best part of every draft – when Knicks fans get so excited to finally make a pick, only to hear a foreign name called and boo like crazy. So entertaining. Kostas Papanikolaou is your reward for waiting around for four-plus hours, Knicks's fans. But had any of these fans watched Olympiakos win the Euroleague title, they'd be thrilled with this pick. He's not coming over right away, but when he does, he'll make an impact as a slasher/defender. The Knicks need a player like this. - Nick Prevenas
Kostas Papanikolaou

49. Kyle O'Quinn | 6-10 | 241 | PF | Norfolk St. | 22

O’Quinn was one of the darlings of the NCAA Tournament this year when Norfolk State knocked out Missouri. He’s a good rebounder and post scorer, but may not possess the athleticism required to stick in the league. –Seth Sommerfeld
Kyle O'Quinn

50. Izzet Turkyilmaz | 7-1 | 211 | PF/C | Turkey | 22

Turkish center Izzet Turkyilmaz likely won't play in the NBA next season (or any other season), but at 7-1 with a 9-4 standing reach, he'll be useful if you've hidden your spare key on a very tall door frame and can't reach it. As for his basketball skills, he's 210 pounds, which would be fine for a small forward, but he plays center. He's a decent rebounder, but his offensive game is miles away. - Nick Prevenas
Izzet Turkyilmaz

51. Kris Joseph | 6-7 | 215 | SF | Syracuse | 23

The best thing about Joseph is the way that he plays within his game. He’s a balanced player who never forces anything. At times his unwillingness to take over was detrimental to Syracuse, but it should aid him in the pros. The Celtics have another solid young bench player who could make an immediate impact if Doc Rivers actually gives him minutes. –Seth Sommerfeld
Kris Joseph

52. Ognjen Kuzmic | 7-1 | 230 | C | Bosnia & Herzegovina |

Ognjen Kuzmic is an enormous Bosnian center prospect who Adam Silver said comes from Dough Boy, Bosnia (I think it was a mispronunciation). He doesn't have much high-level experience, but if developed properly, he could pay off down the line, just because of that 7-1 frame. - Nick Prevenas
Ognjen Kuzmic

53. Furkan Aldemir | 6-10 | 230 | PF | Turkey | 20

Furkan Aldemir gets boards, then more boards, and then a few more boards. He’s a raw prospect outside of that, but you can’t teach that natural knack for rebounding. –Seth Sommerfeld
Furkan Aldemir

54. Tornike Shengelia | 6-9 | 217 | SF | Rep. of Georgia | 20

A pick bought by the Nets from Philadelphia. Shengalia is an athletic combo forward with strong driving ability. He lacks a great outside shot but could become an NBA player over time.
Tornike Shengelia

55. Darius Johnson-Odom | 6-3 | 212 | SG | Marquette | 22

Dallas is loading up on gritty, hard workers in this draft. Johnson-Odom isn’t going to wow anybody with anything except his determination. His high basketball IQ and solid overall game might be enough to earn him a bench spot if he performs well in the summer league. –Seth Sommerfeld
Darius Johnson-Odom

56. Tomislav Zubcic | 6-10 | 225 | SF | Croatia | 22

Tomislav Zubcic is what we've come to expect from young Croatian prospects: tall (6-11) and skilled. He has a nice face-up game with more range on his jumper than you'd expect. He's another stash-and-wait guy. If he puts on bulk and doesn't lose quickness, he could find himself on an NBA roster one day. - Nick Prevenas
Tomislav Zubcic

57. Ilkan Karaman | 6-10 | 236 | PF | Turkey | 22

Karaman has a ripped body and a sweet shooting touch from outside. He's raw but is a late bloomer than impressed with his energy at the Eurocamp. He is a project that could one day make it over to the NBA if he continues to develop.

58. Robbie Hummel | 6-8 | 218 | SF | Purdue | 23

Had Robbie Hummel's knees cooperated, he would've been one of the most memorable college players of his era. He doesn't have much in the way of footspeed or athleticism, but the 6-8 Hummel can really shoot it. He's the type of guy who looks like he's never lost a game of HORSE. At the very least, he'll have a lot of fun challenging Kevin Love in after-practice shooting games. - Nick Prevenas

59. Marcus Denmon | 6-3 | 188 | PG/SG | Missouri | 22

Denmon gives the Spurs another guard who can bomb it from beyond the arc. He’s an undersized combo guard with decent handles. While the pick doesn’t seem like anything special, the Spurs have had a lot of success developing guards like Denmon in the past. –Seth Sommerfeld

60. Robert Sacre | 6-11 | 260 | C | Gonzaga | 23

With the last pick of the draft, Gonzaga center Robert Sacre hears his name called. He's 23, so he's essentially a finished product, but he's big and he's got some skills. He's an excellent free throw shooter and he has great hands, but he doesn't always play to his size. He's fundamentally sound, but limited. - Nick Prevenas
