CBSSports.com NBA Writer Matt Moore analyzes each pick from Round 2 of the 2013 NBA Draft, grading each team on its draft-night selections. Refresh this page during the round for the latest grades.
Grades: Round 1 • Round 2 •
|31||B-||Timberwolves select: Cedi Osman, PG, Macedonia |
Versatile at 6-foot-7. Not exceptional in any area, he but could develop into a rotation player for Cleveland, which acquired this slot in a trade for the No. 24 overall pick. Not bad.
|32||A+||Rockets select: Montrezl Harrell, PF-C, Louisville |
A terrific value at this spot, Harrell should have been a first-round selection. He's a finished product who can contribute immediately. This opens up some trade possibilities for the Rockets. Harrell's going to bust heads at the next level.
|33||B||Celtics select: Jordan Mickey, PF, LSU |
Mickey can provide raw production and has great athleticism. The Celtics needed frontcourt athleticism and nabbed some in this draft, especially with this pick.
|34||B||Lakers select: Anthony Brown, SF, Stanford |
Little surprised they took someone who is projected to play this season given their desire to keep their cap open. If he can surprise in summer league, maybe he can find a spot. Long, can shoot, lots to like here.
|35||D||76ers select: Guillermo Hernangomez, C, Spain |
Not much he can do athletically. Maybe he can surprise, but he seems like he has very limited potential for serious rotation minutes. This pick is reportedly going to the Knicks.
|36||A||Timberwolves select: Rakeem Christmas, C, Syracuse |
His wingspan is 7-5.25. It's hard to blame the Cavs, which acquired this pick in a draft-night trade, for taking a big-program guy this low with that kind of wingspan. There's only so much he can do, but if he can just bang down low, he can be valuable.
|37||D||76ers select: Richaun Holmes, PF, Bowling Green |
Total project. Don't expect to see him.
|38||B||Pistons select: Darrun Hilliard II, SF, Villanova |
Ready to go out of the box. Solid shooter.
|39||C||Hornets select: Juan Vaulet, SG, Argentina |
A 6-foot-6 small forward who could struggle at the next level. Reportedly headed to Brooklyn in a draft-night deal.
|40||B||Heat select: Josh Richardson, SG, Tennessee |
Solid shooter when he has his feet set.
|41||B||Nets select: Pat Connaughton, SG, Notre Dame |
Shot makers make shots, and Patty makes shots. Good athleticism as well. Reportedly headed to Portland in a draft-night trade.
|42||B||Jazz select: Olivier Hanlan, PG, Boston College |
First-round talent. The Jazz have a lot of guards, but he's smooth enough to get a roster spot.
|43||B-||Pacers select: Joseph Young, SG, Oregon |
Great shooter to find this late in the round.
|44||B||Suns select: Andrew Harrison, PG, Kentucky |
Decent value at this spot. He's a big shot maker despite all his flaws. A 6-foot-5 Kentucky point guard in the second round? Hard to take issue with that. Reportedly headed to Memphis in a draft-night trade.
|45||D-||Celtics select: Marcus Thornton, SG, William & Mary |
Probably not an NBA player at this level.
|46||B||Bucks select: Norman Powell, SG, UCLA |
Athletic with playmaking ability. Big steal here. Headed to Toronto in a trade.
|47||F||76ers select: Arturas Gudaitis, C, Lithuania |
He's a human, so that's nice.
|48||B||Thunder select: Dakari Johnson, C, Kentucky |
Super-big and a known quantity as a recruit who did not sign with Billy Donovan at Florida. There's a lot he needs to improve, but there's value in having a guy who can just bust guys up. Low risk, low upside pick.
|49||D+||Wizards select: Aaron White, PF, Iowa |
One of those guys who has a lot of tanglble skills but lacks the kind of package of abilities to set him apart. Could be a good rebounder next level though.
|50||D||Hawks select: Marcus Eriksson, SG, Sweden |
Missed most of the year with injury. Low upside and injury concerns.
|51||F||Magic select: Tyler Harvey, SG, Eastern Washington |
Gunners this late are never good; Harvey is no exception.
|52||F||Mavericks select: Satnam Singh Bhamara, C, India |
Not an NBA player but good for a sideshow. He's a comic book supervillain-sized dude.
|53||B||Cavaliers select: Sir'Dominic Pointer, SF, St. John's |
Tough defender who's great at attacking on backdoor cuts. There's a role out there for him if he can hang.
|54||C||Jazz select: Daniel Diez, SF, Spain |
Might be able to hang if his shot stays solid, and he has good athleticism. Probably not quick enough to make the roster though.
|55||F||Spurs select: Cady Lalanne, C, Massachusetts |
Big person is big and will not play in the NBA. Will likely be a star for the Austin Spurs of the NBA D-League.
|56||B||Pelicans select: Branden Dawson, SF, Michigan State |
I tend to think Michigan State guys with athleticism will translate. He lacks skills but should at least battle in summer league with a shot at roster.
|57||F||Nuggets select: Nikola Radicevic, PG, Serbia |
This is probably the first and last time you will ever see this name.
|58||B||76ers select: J.P. Tokoto, SF, North Carolina |
Can't finish and the shot is a work in progress, but he actually has some potential to be a steal with his combination of skills.
|59||F||Hawks select: Dimitrios Agravanis, PF, Greece |
Stretch fours with his size go higher if they're going to make it. It's kind of reverse engineering, but he doesn't project as an NBA player.
|60||D||76ers select: Luka Mitrovic, PF, Serbia |
It's only fitting that Mr. Irrelevant is drafted by the Sixers, who desire no relevancy whatsoever.
