1 Washington Wizards, John Wall, Kentucky point guard: A fine combination of speed, ball handling and change-of-direction in a time when you can't touch the ball handler.
2 Philadelphia 76ers, Evan Turner, Ohio State swing guard: He's a grown-up and a skilled scorer. With so many maybes behind him, this is a remarkable, dependable selection.
3 New Jersey Nets, Derrick Favors, Georgia Tech power forward: He's the best fit with Brook Lopez on a team with many needs and a long horizon.
4 Minnesota Timberwolves, Wesley Johnson, Syracuse forward: Like Turner, a safe "value" pick. The wild card is all the trade talks that will involve the Timberwolves right up to their selection.
Never miss a local story.
5 Sacramento Kings, DeMarcus Cousins, Kentucky center: Trading for 76ers center Sam Dalembert would not dissuade the Kings from taking a center here.
6 Golden State Warriors, Al-Farouq Aminu, Wake Forest forward: He'd be a good fit, with Corey Maggette leaving, and Don Nelson loves end-to-end finesse guys with size.
7 Detroit Pistons, Greg Monroe, Georgetown power forward: John Kuester, an imaginative offensive mind, will figure out how to exploit this big man's passing acumen.
8 Los Angeles Clippers, Luke Babbitt, Nevada forward: He gives them another scorer at the wing positions, where the Clippers are weakest. But the guy will be a big defensive liability.
9 Utah Jazz, Ekpe Udoh, Baylor power forward: I love this guy's athleticism, and Utah needs insurance against Carlos Boozer leaving in free agency.
10 Indiana Pacers, Ed Davis, North Carolina power forward: Whoever the Pacers draft, it's probably for someone else. They're looking to deal this pick for a veteran point guard.
11 New Orleans Hornets, Cole Aldrich, Kansas center: When was the last time a team had too many centers? Wouldn't be the worst thing if the Hornets unload Emeka Okafor's contract.
12 Memphis Grizzlies, Paul George, Fresno State forward: He's somewhat redundant to Rudy Gay, but wing players with similar skills can still play together.
13 Toronto Raptors, Xavier Henry, Kansas shooting guard: This is not the Raptors' biggest concern; they have to figure how to keep Chris Bosh or leverage a sign-and-trade.
14 Houston Rockets, Gordon Hayward, Butler small forward: Like the Pacers, there's a good chance the Rockets will be drafting for another team. They're in play to move this pick.
15 Milwaukee Bucks, Patrick Patterson, Kentucky power forward: They've filled the two tough spots at center (Andrew Bogut) and point guard (Brandon Jennings). Now they're looking for depth in-between.
16 Minnesota Timberwolves, Daniel Orton, Kentucky power forward: Yes, this is the pick the Bobcats gave up from the Alexis Ajinca deal.
17 Chicago Bulls, James Anderson, Oklahoma State guard: This pick is available as the Bulls look to free additional cap space for free-agency.
18 Oklahoma City Thunder, Elliot Williams, Memphis guard: Heat trading this pick to also unload Daequan Cook's salary.
19 Boston Celtics, Larry Sanders, VCU center: A 7-foot athlete who is still learning the game.
20 San Antonio Spurs, Avery Bradley, Texas shooting guard: He'd have a short hop over from Austin.
21 Oklahoma City Thunder, Devin Ebanks, West Virginia small forward: Showed during Final Four run he's a great teammate and competitor.
22 Portland Trail Blazers, Hassan Whiteside, Marshall center: He could be a big-time shot-blocker and rebounder.
23 Minnesota Timberwolves, Kevin Seraphin, French center: With multiple picks, the T-Wolves can afford to bank a young International player.
24 Atlanta Hawks, Armon Johnson, Nevada point guard: Mike Bibby is getting old and Jeff Teague still needs to prove himself.
25 Memphis Grizzlies, Eric Bledsoe, Kentucky point guard: It's still an open question whether Mike Conley is their long-term solution at the point guard.
26 Oklahoma City Thunder, Ganai Lawal, Georgia Tech power forward: Was still productive paired in the frontcourt with freshman Favors.
27 New Jersey Nets, Damion James, Texas small forward: Extremely productive, shooting 48 percent from the field as a Longhorn.
28 Memphis Grizzlies, Solomon Alabi, Florida State center: Needs a refined offensive game, but superior athleticism for his size.
29 Orlando Magic, Dominique Jones, South Florida combo guard: Offers depth, plus insurance should J.J. Redick move on.
30 Washington Wizards, Quincy Poindexter, Washington small forward: Will post up wing players with a strong body and turnaround moves.
