2015 NBA mock draft: Pac-12 perspective updated 5/26

Now that the lottery order is set, we updated our NBA mock draft that focuses on Pac-12 players.

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

1. Minnesota - Karl-Anthony Towns C Kentucky

2. Lakers - Jahlil Okafor C Duke

3. Philadelphia - D'Angelo Russell PG Ohio State

4. New York - Emmanuel Mudiay PG Congo

5. Orlando - Kristaps Porzingis PF Latvia

6. Sacramento - Justise Winslow SG Duke

7. Denver - Mario Hezonja SG Croatia

8. Detroit - Stanley Johnson SF Arizona

Johnson would fit in perfectly as a Piston and could become their Ron Artest without the malice. His offensive skills knock him out of the top five, but Johnson is the best perimeter defender in the draft and he can easily pick up some more offensive skills early in his career in the NBA.

9. Charlotte - Willie Cauley-Stein C Kentucky

10. Miami - Myles Turner C Texas

11. Indiana - Frank Kaminsky C Wisconsin

12. Utah -Trey Lyles PF Kentucky

13. Phoenix - Devin Booker SG Kentucky

14. Oklahoma City - Kelly Oubre SF Kansas

15. Atlanta - Sam Dekker SF Wisconsin

16. Boston - Bobby Portis PF Arkansas

17. Milwaukee - Cameron Payne PG Murray State

18. Houston - Kevon Looney PF UCLA

The Rockets really need some youth at both forward positions, so the versatile Looney would be a perfect fit. His tweener tag could actually be a bit of a plus on a team that needs help at both spots.

19. Washington - Montrezl Harrell PF Louisville

20. Toronto - R.J. Hunter SG Georgia State

21. Dallas - Tyus Jones PG Duke

22. Chicago - Jerian Grant PG Notre Dame

23. Portland - Rondae Hollis-Jefferson SF Arizona

I have a feeling Hollis-Jefferson ends up being one of those guys who everyone wonders how they fell this far in the draft. The Blazers really need to get some more scoring at the wing and a crafty scorer like Hollis-Jefferson might not turn into a star, but quickly become an excellent compliment to Damian Lillard.

24. Cleveland - Justin Anderson SG Virginia

25. Memphis - Christian Wood PF UNLV

26. San Antonio - Delon Wright PG Utah

27. Lakers - Rashad Vaughn SG UNLV

28. Boston - Chris McCullough PF Syracuse

29. Brooklyn - Jarell Martin PF LSU

30. Golden State - Aleksander Vezenkov SF Bulgaria
