45) Kristaps Porzingis, PF/C, Dallas Mavericks
46) Kyle Lowry, PG, Toronto Raptors
47) Jonas Valanciunas, C, Memphis Grizzlies
48) Lauri Markkanen, PF/C, Chicago Bulls<
49) Zach LaVine, PG/SG, Chicago Bulls<
50) Mike Conley, PG, Utah Jazz
51) Kevin Love, PF/C, Cleveland Cavaliers
52) Danilo Gallinari, SF/PF, Oklahoma City Thunder
53) Otto Porter Jr., SF/PF, Chicago Bulls
54) Thomas Bryant, C, Washington Wizards
55) Malcolm Brogdon, PG/SG, Indiana Pacers
56) Marvin Bagley III, PF/C, Sacramento Kings
57) Hassan Whiteside, C, Portland Trailblazers

With Jusuf Nurkic (leg) still on the shelf, Whiteside will likely get plenty of early-season minutes with Portland and provide a great complement to the dynamic backcourt duo of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum. Whiteside will share time in the frontcourt with Zach Collins and Skal Labissierre but provides better defense and rebounding than those young options. While he isn’t going to stretch the floor, he provides elite defensive stats along with great numbers on the boards. He has been limited by a minor ankle injury this preseason but that has helped keep his draft stock nice and low. He has an extremely high ceiling and a low floor for a pick in the 50-75 range.



58) Aaron Gordon, SF/PF, Orlando Magic
59) Julius Randle, PF/C, New York Knicks
60) Mitchell Robinson, C, New York Knicks<
61) Myles Turner, PF/C, Indiana Pacers
62) Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, PG/SG, Oklahoma City Thunder
63) Jaren Jackson Jr., PF/C, Memphis Grizzlies
64) Eric Bledsoe, PG/SG, Milwaukee Bucks
65) Al Horford, PF/C, Philadelphia 76ers
66) Josh Richardson, SG/SF, Philadelphia 76ers
67) Steven Adams, C, Oklahoma City Thunder
68) Domantas Sabonis, PF/C, Indiana Pacers
69) Ja Morant, PG, Memphis Grizzlies
70) Lonzo Ball, PG, New Orleans Pelicans
71) Ricky Rubio, PG, Phoenix Suns
72) Lou Williams, PG/SG, Los Angeles Clippers
73) Gordon Hayward, SG/SF, Boston Celtics
74) Bam Adebayo, PF/C, Miami Heat
75) Caris LeVert, SG/SF, Brooklyn Nets
76) Miles Bridges, SF, Charlotte Hornets
77) Jeremy Lamb, SG/SF, Indiana Pacers
78) Terry Rozier, PG/SG, Charlotte Hornets
79) Kyle Kuzma, SF/PF, Los Angeles Lakers
80) Enes Kanter, C, Boston Celtics
81) Victor Oladipo, PG/SG, Indiana Pacers
82) DeAndre Jordan, C, Brooklyn Nets
83) Joe Ingles, SG/SF, Utah Jazz

While the Jazz were dealing with injuries in the second half of last season, Ingles impressed with multi-category production. Not counting his final regular-season game, Ingles averaged 12.9 points, 6.9 assists, 4.1 rebounds, 2.7 three-pointers and 0.8 steals per game over his final 40 games of the season. With the Jazz adding Bojan Bogdanovic, Ingles has become a bit of a forgotten asset making him a great value. He can contribute across the stat sheet and could thrive as the sixth man in Utah’s second unit while also serving as an important part of their end-of-game rotation. The 32-year-old may not be the flashiest pick on the board, but Slo-Mo Joe is the kind of late-round value that can help fill in any lacking categories and round out a strong roster.

126) Thaddeus Young, SF/PF, Chicago Bulls
127) Spencer Dinwiddie, PG/SG, Brooklyn Nets
128) Bogdan Bogdanovic, SG/SF, Sacramento Kings
129) Zach Collins, PF/C, Portland Trailblazers
130) Taurean Prince, SF, Brooklyn Nets
131) Ish Smith, PG, Washington Wizards
132) Cedi Osman, SF/PF, Cleveland Cavaliers
133) Alex Len, PF/C, Atlanta Hawks
134) Jerami Grant, SF/PF, Denver Nuggets
135) Derrick Rose PG/SG, Detroit Pistons
136) Dennis Schroder, PG/SG, Oklahoma City Thunder
137) Ivica Zubac, C, Los Angeles Clippers
138) Kelly Olynyk, PF/C, Miami Heat
139) Joe Harris, SG/SF, Brooklyn Nets
140) Kevon Looney, PF/C, Golden State Warriors
141) Danny Green, SG/SF, Los Angeles Lakers
142) Reggie Jackson, PG/SG, Detroit Pistons
143) P.J. Tucker, SF/PF, Houston Rockets
144) Kyle Anderson, SG/SF, Memphis Grizzlies
145) D.J. Augustin, PG, Orlando Magic
146) Tyus Jones, PG, Memphis Grizzlies
147) Landry Shamet, PG/SG, Los Angeles Clippers

Shamet is a long-range specialist, who is in a great spot after being traded from the 76ers to the Clippers in the Tobias Harris deal last season. The second-year player could shuffle in and out of the lineup depending on who else the Clippers have available but has shown he can step up and score when given the chance. In his 25 games with Los Angeles last season, Shamet averaged 27.8 minutes and hit 2.7 three-point shots per game while averaging 10.9 points. He hit multiple threes in 20 of those 25 games and only failed to hit a single three-pointer in one of those games. While his role could fluctuate, he is one of the Clippers’ best long-range threats and should work his way into a nice complementary role next to Kawhi Leonard and Paul George.

150) De’Andre Hunter, SF/PF, Atlanta Hawks
