With the NBA season tipping off last week and college hoops getting underway later this week, it is time to bust out our updated 2013 NBA Mock Draft.  Click on the players’ name for a complete, in-depth scouting report. (By the way, The Sports Bank was graded as the most accurate 2011 AND 2012 NBA Mock Draft on the web.) Check out The Sports Bank’s 2013 NFL Mock Draft. 31. Oklahoma City (from CHA)- Trevor Mbakwe, PF, Minnesota, 6-8, Sr. He should be able to contribute off somebody’s bench due to his ability to rebound the basketball. 32. Washington- Michael Snaer, SG, Florida State, 6-5, Sr. The Seminole senior is a terrific defender and capable scorer as well. 33. Sacramento- Augusto Cesar Lima, PF, Brazil, 6-10, 1991 The Brazilian is still developing as an offensive player but has NBA level athleticism. 34. Cleveland- Mason Plumlee, PF, Duke, 6-10, Sr. The middle Plumlee brother is a terrific athlete but very limited on the offensive end. 35. Philadelphia (from NO)- Christian Watford, F, Indiana, 6-9, Sr. Christian Watford is an inside/outside combo forward who can shoot it from deep. 36. Portland- Richard Howell, PF, N.C. State, 6-8, Sr. A bit undersized, Richard Howell is physical in the paint and has a decent mid-range game as well. 37. Cleveland (from ORL)- Pierre Jackson, PG, Baylor, 5-10, Sr. Size is a concern but Pierre Jackson is a high energy point guard capable of stroking it from deep or using his quickness to get to the rim. 38. Detroit- Elijah Johnson, G, Kansas, 6-4, Sr. Elijah Johnson has been a quality role player during his time at Kansas and should become more of a focal point of the offense this year. 39. Atlanta- Alex Oriakhi, PF, Missouri, 6-9, Sr. Despite the inconsistencies the past couple years, the former UConn big man has the size and strength to intrigue some team. 40. Houston- Aziz N’Diaye, C, Washington, 7-0, Sr. The Huskies’ seven-footer has steadily improved year-by-year and since size is always needed by NBA teams, will be a second round pick. 41. Portland (from MIN)- Aaric Murray, PF/C, West Virginia, 6-10, Jr. Good size and a decent mid-range game; the LaSalle transfer will probably only play one year at West Virginia. 42. Milwaukee- Rodney Williams, SF, Minnesota, 6-7, Sr. Always known as an explosive athlete, the lack of development in his jump shot really hurts Rodney Williams’ stock. 43. Orlando (from GS)- Reggie Johnson, C, Miami (FL), 6-10, Sr. A load in the paint, Reggie Johnson knows how to score around the basket. 44. Phoenix- Brandon Paul, SG, Illinois, 6-4, Sr. Brandon Paul has been a streaky producer but due to his outside shooting and ability to attack the tin, he has NBA potential. 45. Toronto- Raul Neto, PG, Brazil, 6-2, 1992 He lacks NBA level athleticism but is very quick and plays aggressively on both ends. 46. Utah- Elias Harris, SF, Gonzaga, 6-7, Sr. The Germany native has a solid inside/outside game and makes his presence known on the glass. 47. Dallas- Lucas Noguiera, C, Brazil, 7-0, 1992 Lucas Noguiera has been on scout’s radars for quite some time due to his size and athleticism. 48. Chicago- Peyton Siva, PG, Louisville, 5-11, Sr. His defensive tenacity and quickness as a playmaker will land Peyton Siva a spot in the second round. 49. Philadelphia- Kenny Kadji, PF, Miami (FL), 6-11, Sr. Kenny Kadji has good size and the ability to stretch defenses with his perimeter shooting. 50. Phoenix (from DEN)- Trent Lockett, SG, Marquette, 6-5, Sr. I expect a breakout season for Trent Lockett at Marquette which should earn him NBA looks. 51. Indiana- Tim Frazier, PG, Penn State, 6-1, Sr. Because he plays for a crappy team, Tim Frazier’s all-around production typically goes underappreciated. 52. Memphis- Matthew Dellavedova, PG, St. Mary’s, 6-4, Sr. A record breaking point guard at St. Mary’s, the Aussie can stroke it from deep but a lack of athleticism makes him a borderline draft pick. 53. Minnesota (via BRK)- L.A. Clippers- Mouphtaou Yarou, PF/C, Villanova, 6-10, Sr. Mouphtaou Yarou has good size, strength, and energy but is fairly limited on the offensive end. 54. Portland (from BOS)- Zeke Marshall, C, Akron, 7-0, Sr. His ability to protect the rim will earn him a chance to find a home in the league. 55. L.A. Clippers- Carl Jones, PG, St. Joseph’s, 5-11, Sr. Though undersized, Carl Jones is a terrific playmaker and offensive weapon. 56. Washington (from NY)- Dexter Strickland, G, North Carolina, 6-3, Sr. A versatile combo guard, Dexter Strickland will need a strong bounce back senior after missing most of last year due to injury. 57. San Antonio- Wally Judge, PF, Rutgers, 6-9, Jr. After underachieving for two years at K-State, the athletic power forward gets new life at Rutgers. 58. Minnesota (from OKC)- Mindaugas Kupsas, C, Lithuania, 7-1, 1991 An intriguing foreign prospect due to his size. 59. L.A. Lakers- Keith Clanton, PF, UCF, 6-9, Sr. Keith Clanton is physical down low but can also step out to the three point line. 60. Miami- D.J. Cooper, PG, Ohio, 6-0, Sr. The Bobcat senior is a playmaker as a scorer and distributor.
