#26 Miami Heat – DeAndre Daniels, SF Connecticut

Picked by Wes Goldberg at All U Can Heat

With Shane Battier retiring and Ray Allen possibly joining him, as well as the contracts of Rashard Lewis, Michael Beasley and James Jones coming off the books, the Miami Heat will be looking to improve their depth at the wing this offseason. Daniels came up big for the Huskies in the tournament and projects as a 3-and-D guy in the NBA. Daniels shot better than 41 percent from three last season. His 6’8” frame and 7’2” wingspan combined with his athleticism and shooting ability make for a good fit in Miami’s scheme.

#27 Phoenix Suns – Jerami Grant,  SF Syracuse

Picked byEric Saar at Valley of the Suns

Pistons Palace Analysis — Grant is the perfect athlete for the run and gun offense and he brings a good handle as well to Phoenix. Grant is very raw, but is learning the ropes of the hybrid power forward position. He has all the physical tools needed to succeed at the position and the Suns are one of the few teams in the league that have a place for him in that type of system.

#28 Los Angeles Clippers – Zach LaVine, SG UCLA

Picked by Trisity Miller at Fully Clips

Didn’t think he’d be here, but the Clippers are taking Zach LaVine. Chris Paul would be the perfect target for the combo guard and he’d allow the Clips to save money by cutting Jamal Crawford. He’s super athletic and a proven shooter. The clippers can afford to wait for the rest of his game to fill in.

#29 Oklahoma City – Jordan Adams, SG UCLA

Picked by Mark Bruty, Thunderous Intentions

It’s no secret that the Thunder need some scoring from the 2 spot and while there is very likelihood it comes in the off season via a trade there is no harm grabbing Adams.

He can take time to develop and by pushing Lamb a bit the Thunder could reap all sorts of rewards.

#30 San Antonio Spurs – Mitch McGary, Michigan

Picked by FanSided Editor Draft Panel

Pistons Palace Analysis —  When Tim Duncan moves on from his legendary career, the Spurs will need a post presence that can run the Spurs offense. McGary is an underrated passer and and has the tools to be a good scorer inside the paint. If San Antonio can round out Mitch McGary’s all-around game and turn him into a team player — watch out.
