21. Indiana Pacers grab Jared McCain

McCain has shown some flashes during his first five games at Duke, including making ten of 22 from 3-point range, but he must provide more scoring, playmaking, and defense if he wants to stick in the first round.

22. New York Knicks (via Dallas Mavericks) select Aday Mara

Mara is a 7’3 big man who profiles as a strong rebounder and rim protector. The 18-year-old may never be more than a limited big man, but finding a surefire rotation player at this point in the draft seems wise.

23. Miami Heat take Trey Alexander

The 6’4 guard is off to a fantastic start to his junior season at Creighton. He shot 41.0 percent from 3-point range last season. If he continues to showcase strong playmaking and keeps making jumpers, there is lottery potential.

24. Orlando Magic choose Kobe Johnson

The 6’6 junior wing out of USC is a strong defender, who is a career 34.9 percent 3-point shooter. He must improve his jumper and produce enough offensively to stick in an NBA rotation, but the potential is there.

25. Philadelphia 76ers select D.J. Wagner

Wagner has been inefficient to start the season for Kentucky, but he would not be the first Wildcat to slide on draft boards and stand out in the NBA. The 76ers have one of those players in Tyrese Maxey, and they take Wagner to back him up here.
