Arizona. Christian Koloko. 31. player. Pick Analysis. C. Scouting Report. 100

Koloko is worth targeting for the Pacers considering all of the Myles Turner trade rumors: A quality rim protector who can bully smaller defenders in the paint, Koloko has a ton to work with physically.

SF. G League. MarJon Beauchamp. 32. 38. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. player

Beauchamp has a 7-0 wingspan and should be an immediate impact player on defense in the pros. Orlando could have a steal if Beauchamp translates his G League numbers to the NBA.

NBA Mock Draft: Bryce McGowens could be a two-way stud.

Pick Analysis. SG. Nebraska. 33. player. Scouting Report. Bryce McGowens. 81

McGowens is not a great shooter right now, but a 6-7 ball-handler with such proficient scoring skill is just what this Toronto roster needs. The Raptors have the coaching staff to mold McGowens into a long-term contributor.

149. Trevor Keels. 34. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. SG. Duke. player

Keels is almost a clone of Lu Dort, so his body type could appeal to OKC. If Keels becomes a better shooter, he could be an even better NBA player than his running mate Wendell Moore.

Scouting Report. SG. Kansas. player. Pick Analysis. Christian Braun. 35. 38

Braun’s lack of any sort of mid-range game will be tough for some teams to swallow, but the Magic could be won over by his production in the NCAA tournament and verticality.

36. 34. C. Fresno State. Orlando Robinson. player. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis

Robinson was laying waste to the rest of the Mountain West thanks to his humungous 7-0 frame and finishing. Robinson can provide insurance if Jusuf Nurkic stays hurt and Drew Eubanks regresses.

Scouting Report. Jake LaRavia. 37. player. 84. Pick Analysis. PF. Wake Forest

A pick-and-roll master who can defend multiple positions and serve as an elite catch-and-shoot threat, LaRavia’s game is perfect for the modern NBA. Sacramento would do well to snatch him up here.

Ismael Kamagate. 38. 29. Scouting Report. C. player. Pick Analysis. France

Kamagate would be a solid backup now that Jakob Poeltl is entering a contract year. A solid rebounder with an offensive game that is better than it ever has been, San Antonio could get some mileage out of him.

Pick Analysis. PG/SG. Wake Forest. 39. player. Scouting Report. Alondes Williams. 156

Williams is an older point guard without incredible explosion, but his gaudy collegiate numbers will help sell a team like Cleveland on his two-way potential.

86. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Iverson Molinar. player. PG/SG. Mississippi State. 40

A personal favorite, Molinar was a lethal scorer and shooter for the Bulldogs. While a bit on the stringy side, the Timberwolves could use a player with his level of scoring punch.

Max Christie. 41. 69. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. SG. Michigan State. player

Christie had an up-and-down season with the Spartans, but he has a pretty jumper and quality athleticism. New Orleans could go BPA here to make that bench even deeper, giving Christie some minutes right out of the gate.

PG. Alabama. JD Davison. 42. player. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. 27

Davison will need some G League time before he is ready for primetime due to poor shooting, but he is an A+ athlete with room to grow on both ends of the floor that the Knicks could utilize.

player. SF. 43. 77. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Colorado State. David Roddy

Roddy has a center’s midsection and a guard’s height and shooting ability. This bizarre, yet consistently effective, prospect could find a home with a creative coach like the Clippers’ Ty Lue.
