PickGradeTeamAnalysis
31BBucks select: Damien Inglis, SF, French Guiana

Huge wing at 6-7 and 210 lbs. Strong value.

32A76ers select: K.J. McDaniels, SF, Clemson

They finally snagged a superb wing which they missed on earlier.

33BCavaliers select: Joe Harris, SF, Virginia

I like his skill set and he's strong. Durable guy, but a little redundant with Karasev.

34A+Knicks select: Cleanthony Early, PF, Wichita State

So much potential and athleticism. Great building block for New York.

35BJazz select: Jarnell Stokes, PF, Tennessee

TRADED TO MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES -- Gives them another big body inside and he's nasty. He fits their team culture.

36CBucks select: Johnny O'Bryant III, PF, LSU

Not sure they need another power forward here, but I like his strength and post scoring.

37ARaptors select: DeAndre Daniels, SF, Connecticut

Well worth a pick here for athleticism alone.

38DPistons select: Spencer Dinwiddie, SG, Colorado

He could have been around later and is coming off a major injury. Needed another year.

39A76ers select: Jerami Grant, PF, Syracuse

Super athletic wings: Philly has all of them.

40B+Timberwolves select: Glenn Robinson III, SF, Michigan

Kind of a weird fit with Shabazz Muhammad on the team, but if his shot normalizes, this could be a steal.

41FNuggets select: Nikola Jokic, C, Serbia

What? Jusef Nurkic wasn't enough?

42BRockets select: Nick Johnson, SG, Arizona

He'll do fine in Rio Grande Valley for a while.

43B+Hawks select: Walter Tavares, C, Cape Verde

He's 7-2. That's all you need to know.

44A+Timberwolves select: Markel Brown, SG, Oklahoma State

TRADED TO BROOKLYN NETS -- Tremendous scorer and athlete.

45B+Hornets select: Dwight Powell, PF, Stanford

Love his skill set and basketball IQ. Great depth here.

46BWizards select: Jordan Clarkson, SG, Missouri

TRADED TO L.A. LAKERS -- He was first-round talent that fell. He can shoot.

47C+76ers select: Russ Smith, PG, Louisville

TRADED TO NEW ORLEANS PELICANS -- Tough attitude and can manage an offense.

48CBucks select: Lamar Patterson, SG, Pittsburgh

TRADED TO ATLANTA HAWKS -- They're just shopping shooters for summer league, and that works.

49D-Bulls select: Cameron Bairstow, PF, New Mexico

This guy will not make the roster. He can play a little bit, just not for the Bulls.

50CSuns select: Alec Brown, PF/C, Wisconsin-Green Bay

Typical stretch four. He needs to work on how to use his size.

51A+Knicks select: Thanasis Antetokounmpo, SF, Greece

Another home run for the Knicks. He's big, long and athletic. Needs to develop skills.

52B+76ers select: Vasilije Micic, PG, Serbia

Maybe the best pure pick and role guard in the draft.

53CTimberwolves select: Alessandro Gentile, SG, Italy

They can wait to see if he's ready to come over.

54D76ers select: Nemanja Dangubic, SG, Serbia

They picked this out of a hat, I'm convinced.

55B-Heat select: Semaj Christon, PG, Xavier

TRADED TO CHARLOTTE HORNETS -- Not bad, he can help them at a position they need.

56A+Nuggets select: Roy Devyn Marble, SG, Iowa

TRADED TO ORLANDO MAGIC -- A scorer who will light up the summer league.

57C-Pacers select: Louis Labeyrie, PF, France

TRADED TO NEW YORK KNICKS -- Draft-and-stash.

58D-Spurs select: Jordan McRae, SG, Tennessee

TRADED TO PHILADELPHIA 76ERS -- Not a fan of his handle. Can shoot some, but not exceptionally.

59B+Raptors select: Xavier Thames, PG, San Diego State

TRADED TO BROOKLYN NETS -- Slippery guard who can bomb from deep.

60A+Spurs select: Cory Jefferson, PF, Baylor

TRADED TO BROOKLYN NETS -- Getting athleticism like that with Mr. Irrelevant shows you this draft's quality.
