NBA Draft mock 2015: Anthony Brown to Celtics, Norman Powell to Bucks, Kaleb Tarczewski to 76ers

Who are the players who need to rise up a bit?

The Pac-12 players in contention who might or might not be drafted, and we do know that two of them are bordering on lottery status. Let's examine the DraftExpress rankings.

Anthony Brown, Stanford Cardinal, 41st pick to the Boston Celtics: Brown is your typical stretch the floor wing. He's a great shooter and a solid wing. Boston is in need of shooting, and Brown could be a solid second round investment. Boston is a team that has proven that they are well-coached, but they need more offensive talent and Brown seems to be the type of shooting guard that could prosper with talented defensive wings.

Norman Powell, UCLA Bruins, 45th pick to the Milwaukee Bucks: Powell is one of those senior players who seems destined to be a solid bench contributor. Powell is a shooting guard, but doesn't really excel at any particular aspect of the game and has a lot of issues. But he could be a good defender and fit in well with Milwaukee's all athlete system that Jason Kidd likes to employ.

Kaleb Tarczewski, Arizona Wildcats, 57th pick to the Houston Rockets (traded to the Philadelphia 76ers): It's hard not to draft a seven footer, and despite Tarczewski's slow footedness, he is a capable center who can definitely eat up minutes for teams in need of quality rim protection. Zeus is also one of the most efficient big men once he gets close to the basket. He's perfect for the revolving door of the Sixers.
