5 NBA 2012 2nd-Round Picks Guaranteed to Shock Fans in Training Camp

Players in the second round of the NBA draft do not get their contracts guaranteed, so it is difficult for some of them to find a stable situation.

From the start of the draft process, those who aren't given first-round grades are overlooked because very few second-round draft picks become stars.

That being said, front offices that are able to find value with their second-round selections garner an advantage over their competition.  

Manu Ginobili is a perfect example of finding a star in the second round, as the San Antonio Spurs snagged him with the 57th selection in 1999.  

Trying to pick out which second-round picks will have successful careers is an inexact science, but that doesn't mean it isn't worth giving it a shot.
