Pick Analysis. 125. player. Scouting Report. PF/C. Arkansas. Jaylin Williams. 44

Williams could easily go much higher, as he is a top-shelf rim-runner with the defensive potential to earn a starting role eventually. Atlanta would love to have him as an Okongwu backup.

Pick Analysis. player. Scouting Report. SF. North Carolina State. Dereon Seabron. 45. 170

Seabron is a 6-7 forward with poor shooting, but he is a truly positionless defender with tremendous athletic ability. Charlotte will give him a role early on.

Marquette. Justin Lewis. 46. player. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. PF. 64

With a 7-2 wingspan and linebacker-like frame at 245 pounds, Lewis’ gaudy stats in the Big East and quality interior scoring will help Detroit construct a more reliable bench.

player. 211. Scouting Report. SF. Josh Minott. Pick Analysis. Memphis. 47

Minott is a solid rebounder and tremendous defender who must become a better playmaker on the offensive end. The Grizzlies can allow him to slowly develop his skills.

Scouting Report. SF. Julian Champagnie. player. Pick Analysis. St. John's. 48. 86

The twin brother of Raptors two-way Justin Champagnie, Julian would latch on with the Timberwolves thanks to a lethal jumper and rebounding excellence on the wing.

84. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. PG. 49. player. Gonzaga. Andrew Nembhard

Nembhard isn’t the craziest athlete in the world, but Sacramento likely won’t complain too much if they add a 6-5 guard with tremendous passing and defense.

NBA Mock Draft: Is Kofi Cockburn worth taking a risk on?

Illinois. Kofi Cockburn. 50. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. 86. C. player

Cockburn is tipping the scales at nearly 300 pounds, making him an odd fit for the modern NBA. Minnesota could still bring him in after such a dominant college career.

Scouting Report. 51. SG. Arkansas. JD Notae. player. 41. Pick Analysis

While Notae struggled with efficiency, his penchant for causing turnovers on defense and piling up the points make him a solid youngster for the Warriors to work with.

Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Marcus Bingham. 52. player. C. Michigan State. 69

Jonas Valanciunas might need a better long-term backup than Jaxson Hayes, and Bingham’s standout shot-blocking skills will help him wiggle onto an NBA bench.

player. Pick Analysis. SG. Gabriele Procida. 53. Scouting Report. Italy. 18

The Celtics can afford to take a flier on overseas developmental prospects. Procida’s 3-point shot is already quality, and Boston will give him the G League steps he needs to become a stud.

Ron Harper Jr.. player. 142. Pick Analysis. Rutgers. 54. Scouting Report. SF

One of a few second-generation players in this draft, Harper is a 240-pound Clydesdale with the versatility and sweet shot needed to stick around in Washington.

player. 41. Scouting Report. PG. Vanderbilt. 55. Pick Analysis. Scotty Pippen Jr.

Forget his last name. Pippen can ball no matter who his father is. With a craftiness to his game and lethal 3-point shot that befuddled the SEC, Pippen could be a nice short-term gamble for Golden State.

C. 56. Spain. Khalifa Diop. player. 156. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis

Diop is highly raw when it comes to using his bulk on the offensive end, but he still profiles as a rock-solid rebounder and shot-blocker that Cleveland could work with.

Toledo. Ryan Rollins. 34. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. 57. player. SG

Portland finishes their draft by adding a two-way guard who just tore through the MAC last year. A craft mid-range scorer, there’s a lot to like about Rollins’ game.

Scouting Report. Johnny Juzang. player. SF. UCLA. 58. 100. Pick Analysis

The Pacers will end the draft by taking Juzang, who put together another solid offensive year at UCLA. His scoring skill will help Juzang get picked despite average athleticism.
