2009 NBA Mock Draft: Walt's
2009 NBA Draft Prospect Rankings: C | PF | SF | SG | PG
2010 NBA Mock Draft
Updated: June 25, 2009, 5:25 pm
  1. Darren Collison, PG, UCLA, 6-0, Sr.
    Even if they draft Curry, the Kings could still add a true point guard and Collison is a great option.

  2. Washington Wizards: Taj Gibson, PF, USC, 6-9, Jr.
    Since trading three post players for Randy Foye and Mike Miller, the Wizards could use depth up front.

  3. Portland Blazers: DaJuan Summers, SF, Georgetown, 6-8, Jr.
    The Blazers add an athletic, physically gifted combo forward.

  4. Denver Nuggets: Jeff Pendergraph, PF, Arizona State, 6-10, Sr.
    A potential replacement for the Birdman, who is a free agent.

  5. Detroit Pistons: Victor Claver, F, Spain, 6-11, 1988
    The Pistons are likely to take the foreign route with one of their three second-rounders.

  6. Memphis Grizzlies: Chase Budinger, G/F, Arizona, 6-7, Jr.
    Hard to imagine Chase Budinger would drop this low, but it looks like he is ending up a second-round selection.

  7. San Antonio Spurs: Jon Brockman, PF, Washington, 6-7, Sr.
    The Spurs need depth up front since trading Kurt Thomas and Fabricio Oberto.

    David Kay breaks down the Bucks-Spurs Richard Jefferson Trade

  8. Portland Blazers: Wayne Ellington, SG, UNC, 6-5, Jr.
    An immediate backup for LaMarcus Aldridge in case Omri Casspi doesn't come aboard right away.

  9. Detroit Pistons: Danny Green, SF, UNC, 6-6, Sr.
    A versatile player who does a little bit of everything adds depth on the wing for Detroit.

  10. Charlotte Bobcats: Jodie Meeks, SG, Kentucky, 6-5, Jr.
    A pure scorer which the Bobcats badly need.

  11. Milwaukee Bucks: Jermaine Taylor, SG, Central Florida, 6-4, Sr.
    The Bucks grab a great scorer to add depth on the wing.

  12. Los Angeles Lakers: Rodrigue Beaubois, PG, France, 6-2, 1988
    Derek Fisher isn't getting any younger and Jordan Farmar fell out of favor this season.

  13. Miami Heat: Nando de Colo, G, 6-5, France, 1987
    A long-term plan at the point.

  14. Detroit Pistons: Josh Heytvelt, F/C, Gonzaga, 6-11, Sr.
    The Pistons could use some depth up front.

  15. Minnesota Timberwolves: Curtis Jerrells, PG, Baylor, 6-1, Sr.
    A true point guard that the T-Wolves could use.

  16. Phoenix Suns: Christian Eyenga, G/F, Spain, 6-6, 1989
    The Suns now have three second-round picks and need long-term help on the wing.

  17. Minnesota Timberwolves: Sergio Llull, PG, Spain, 6-5, 1988
    It's unlikely the T-Wolves keep all five of their picks, but a foreign prospect makes sense if they do.

  18. Phoenix Suns: Dante Cunningham, F, Villanova, 6-8, Sr.
    The Suns need some depth at forward.

  19. Atlanta Hawks: Ahmad Nivins, PF, St. Joseph?s, 6-9, Sr.
    The Hawks could use some depth up front and Nivins' stock has been on the rise.

  20. Utah Jazz: Lee Cummard, G/F, BYU, 6-7, Sr.
    A scoring wing player in case Kyle Korver opts out of his deal.

  21. San Antonio Spurs: Slava Kravtov, C, Ukraine, 7-0, 1987.
    What's the NBA Draft without the Spurs drafting a foreign player?

  22. Indiana Pacers: Jack McClinton, PG, Miami, 6-1, Sr.
    The Pacers could use a point guard in case Jarrett Jack leaves via free agency.

  23. San Antonio Spurs: Jerel McNeal, SG, Marquette, 6-3, Sr.
    A versatile, though undersized combo guard who plays hard on the defensive end which fits the Spurs M.O.

  24. Charlotte Bobcats: Paul Delaney, PG, UAB, 6-2, Sr.
    Immediate insurance in case Raymond Felton is lost in the offseason.

  25. Portland Blazers: Marcus Thornton, SG, LSU, 6-4, Sr.
    This could be a big-time steal as Thornton is a great shooter.

  26. Dallas Mavericks: Jeff Adrien, PF, UConn, 6-6, Sr.
    Insurance in case Brandon Bass leaves.

  27. Phoenix Suns: Goran Suton, PF, Michigan State, 6-10, Sr.
    A big who can shoot and help fill the void left by Shaq.

  28. Boston Celtics: Leo Lyons, F, Missouri, 6-9, Sr.
    The Celtics hope to find another second-round steal with Glen Davis and Leon Powe both restricted free agents.

  29. Los Angeles Lakers: Dionte Christmas, SG, Temple, 6-5, Sr.
    A potential backup for Kobe who can shoot it from deep.

  30. Miami Heat: Wesley Matthews, SG, Marquette, 6-5, Sr.
    Matthews made a huge jump in his senior season and could bring some toughness to the wing position for the Heat.
