Draft Express has released its latest mock draft, and there are four Pac-12 players who go in the first round of the 2014 NBA Draft. Tomorrow we cover the players who are on the fringes of the second round.
8th pick: Aaron Gordon to the Los Angeles Lakers. Boy Los Angeles fans would be happy with this. Getting an athletic playmaker like Gordon to couple Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol would give Los Angeles a real talent they could develop with the help of strong, veteran leadership. Gordon can do it all and help energize a fast break that has been lagging in the past few years.
26th pick: Zach LaVine to the Charlotte Bobcats. Charlotte really could use more offensive players to help give Al Jefferson more room to operate. LaVine is a pure shooter who should allow for the most optimal spacing.
28th pick; Kyle Anderson to the San Antonio Spurs: The Spurs have to start looking ahead to life after Tim Duncan, and snatching up an intriguing player like Anderson who can distribute and shoot this late would be absolutely solid.
30th pick: C.J. Wilcox to the Phoenix Suns: How about we make the most exciting team in the NBA more exciting by giving them a pure knockdown shooter off the bench? Wilcox is ready to come into the league and make buckets.
