NBA Draft 2014: Mock Draft 4.0 – Part II

PART ONE

15. Atlanta Hawks

Adreian Payne, PF/C, Michigan State, Sr.

An inside-outside threat with four years of seasoning and an NBA body would be a nice complement to Al Horford.

16. Chicago Bulls

Tyler Ennis, PG, Syracuse, Fr.

Derrick Rose will be back again next season, but Chicago needs to have a backup plan in place. 

17. Boston Celtics

Shabazz Napier, PG, UConn, Sr.

Another team in need of insurance at the point guard position, Napier would step in as the heir apparent to Rajon Rondo in Boston.

18. Phoenix Suns

Dario Saric, PF, Croatia

Despite signing a deal with a Turkish team that will keep him from the NBA for at least two seasons, Saric remains the most intriguing international prospect outside of Dante Exum.

19. Chicago Bulls

Jusuf Nurkic, C, Croatia

Nurkic posted a 29.9 PER in 58 Adriatic League games last season, and he’s not yet 20 years old.

20. Toronto Raptors

T.J. Warren, F, North Carolina State, Soph.

The Raptors’ lack of depth was exposed against the Nets in the postseason. At 6-8, 220, Warren, who beat out Jabari Parker for ACC Player of the Year honors, is ready to step in and contribute at two positions.

21. Oklahoma City Thunder

James Young, G/F, Kentucky, Fr.

Young seems to have fallen a tier below Stauskas, Harris and LaVine, but he’s still an extremely appealing NBA prospect. One of the youngest players in the draft, the 18-year-old boasts an intriguing combination of athleticism and three-point shooting.

22. Memphis Grizzlies

P.J.Hairston, G, D-League 

The North Carolina castoff has steadily increased his stock throughout the draft process, and for good reason. Hairston lit up the D-League, averaging nearly 22 points per game in 26 games. He could be the steal of the draft.

23. Utah Jazz

Kyle Anderson, G/F, UCLA, Soph.

The most unique prospect in the draft, Anderson can play and defend up to four positions.

24. Charlotte Hornets

Mitch McGary, F, Michigan, Soph.

A failed drug test essentially forced McGary to enter the draft, but the circumstances don’t appear to have influenced his stock. The big man may have a promise from the Hornets at No. 24.

25. Houston Rockets

Clint Capela, F/C, France

The 6-11 Capela is an excellent athlete and extremely mobile for his size. He may be a year or two away from contributing, but his potential is as high as any player in this range. 

26. Miami Heat

Jarnell Stokes, F, Tennessee, Jr.

The Heat were the NBA’s worst rebounding team last season, and Stokes averaged more than 10 boards per game in the SEC. 

27. Phoenix Suns

Jordan Adams, G, UCLA, Soph.

Adams isn’t the quickest or flashiest shooting guard, but he has a great feel for the game and demonstrated an ability to score (17.4 ppg last season) during his two years at UCLA.

28. Los Angeles Clippers

Patric Young, F, Florida, Sr.

With the Clippers set to compete for an NBA title, Young is a player who can step in and contribute off the bench as a rookie. Built like a 6-10 linebacker, Young is probably the most physical forward in the draft.

29. Oklahoma City Thunder

Jordan Clarkson, G, Missouri, Jr.

One of the most underrated prospects in the draft, Clarkson has excellent size and averaged 3.8 rebounds and 3.4 assists to go with 17.5 points per game last season.

30. San Antonio Spurs

K.J. McDaniels, G/F, Clemson, Jr.

The Spurs were unable to bring in McDaniels for a workout, but they’re apparently intrigued by his combination of rebounding (7.1 rpg) and scoring (17.1) ability.
