player. 147. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Maryland. 31. Center. Bruno Fernando

Going back to Brooklyn’s mission to surround their stars with serviceable role players, the Nets take rim running Bruno Fernando with the first pick in the second round to come off the bench. A very similar player to Jarrett Allen, Fernando will have no problem adjusting to Brooklyn’s system.

Prospect Rank: 31

player. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Forward. Eric Paschall. 32. 66. Villanova

The Suns have no solution at the power forward position, so the pick here is pretty obvious after taking a point guard in the first round. Eric Paschall may not be a viable option as a starter on day one, but his value as a backup or possibly a future starter is evident in his offensive game.

Prospect Rank: 33

Pick Analysis. 93. 33. player. Scouting Report. Guard. Virginia. Ty Jerome

For a team that needs bench help and perimeter shooting, drafting a floor spacing combo guard is an ideal situation. Ty Jerome is able to play both guard positions, off the ball, or on the ball. His versatility and shooting will be crucial in the re-vamping of Philadelphia’s bench.

Prospect Rank: 32

player. Forward. Luka Samanic. 34. 93. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Croatia

Like Jerome, Luka Samanic has the ability to play two positions: small and power forward. His shooting ability is perhaps his greatest strength, making him an enticing piece for the 76ers to bring in. His upside is great, but he also has many questions about his motor. However, the Sixers can afford to take a risk on him with multiple second round selections in this draft.

Prospect Rank: 34

Scouting Report. player. 125. 35. Pick Analysis. Center/Forward. Florida State. Mfiondu Kabengele

Mfiondu Kabengele is regarded by some as a first round talent. Although I am not quite that high on him, there is no doubt that the upside is there. A rebuilding team like Atlanta should not shy away from a project player, especially since in the worst-case-scenerio that him busting results in a mere wasted second round pick.

Prospect Rank: 37

player. 170. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Forward. 36. Oregon. Louis King

Louis King was a great high school product who quietly had a nice season in Eugene. A nice three point shooter, he could create space for Kemba Walker and provide a nice scoring boost off of the bench. His upside is good enough for Charlotte to call his name at 36.

Prospect Rank: 35

79. Pick Analysis. Belmont. Dylan Windler. Scouting Report. Guard/Forward. 37. player

The Mavericks appear to be ready to start wining basketball games and get back into the playoffs now. Taking a four-year college player like Dylan Windler could be the way to go for the Mavs in hopes that his leadership and volume scoring can transfer to the NBA. At the very least, the team can rely on his three point shooting to help boost their playoff chances in the competitive West.

Prospect Rank: 36

dark. Next. Chicago Bulls 2019 NBA Draft prospect Big Board rankings

player. Scouting Report. 38. Forward. High School. Darius Bazley. 24. Pick Analysis

I have changed by mind in just about every mock draft with regard to what the Bulls should do with the 38th pick. The one strategy I have always believed in when picking in the second round is to swing for the fences. The vast majority of second round picks amount to nothing, so why not take a chance on a former five star recruit like Bazley? Betting on his upside could be a major payoff for the Bulls.
