Rest of the top 50

36. Pacers (via Raptors) grab Alex Karaban

37. Timberwolves (via Grizzlies) choose Cam Christie

38. Knicks (via Jazz) select Cam Spencer

39. Grizzlies (via Nets) draft Kel’el Ware

40. Trail Blazers (via Hawks) take Oso Ighodaro

41. 76ers (via Bulls) choose Baylor Scheierman

42. Hornets (via Rockets) select Jamal Shead

43. Heat grab Harrison Ingram

44. Rockets (via Warriors) draft Melvin Ajinca

45. Kings pick Ajay Mitchell

46. Clippers (via Pacers) select K.J. Simpson

47. Magic choose Mantas Rubstavicius

48. Spurs (via Lakers) draft Izan Almansa

Almansa is one of the most accomplished players in this class. He won MVP of the Under-19 World Cup in 2023 and the Under-17 World Cup in 2022. He helped Spain with the gold and silver medals in those competitions. The 6’10 forward had a subpar season with the G League Ignite but is a proven winner with a versatile skill set.

Almansa is the type of player coach Pop loves. He can handle the ball, make some plays, help his teammates get open, and get buckets in the post. His 3-point shooting needs work and there are defensive questions. Still, he may blossom in a better system. Almansa is an afterthought in this class, but fans should be watching.

49. Pacers (via Cavaliers) grab Tyon Grant-Foster

50. Pacers (via Pelicans) take Keshad Johnson
