The second round of the NBA Draft means uncertainty for the draftee, but can mean huge rewards for the teams selecting them. There is no guarantee contract for those players selected in the second round, so if teams get them into camp and they don't work out they can be cut. Recently, the approach hasn't been to even bring the players to camp, but rather let them cut their teeth overseas.
The exception is the big name college players that for whatever reason slide into the second round, come into camp, and earn playing time. There are numerous examples from the last few drafts: DeJuan Blair, Marcus Thornton, Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, Chris Douglas-Roberts, Carl Landry and Glen Davis just to name a few.
Here we bring you 10 players who could make a similar impact for your team.
All of the players in our mock are considered long shots for the first round. Obviously, there are players who are second round material in some mocks (including ours), but that have a good chance to go in the first round. We chose to leave those players off our draft, they include: Lance Stephenson, Gani Lawal, Dominque Jones, Terrico White, Devin Ebanks and others.
