6. Sacramento Kings

6. player. 67. Cauley-Stein is a good example of what an NBA big needs to be today. He has size but also athleticism that means he can run the floor and doesn’t have to be tied to the block. He is better defensively at this point and has a knack for blocking shots and forcing turnovers.. Center. Kentucky. Willie Cauley-Stein

7. Denver Nuggets

Shooting Guard. Croatia. Mario Hezonja. 7. player. 73. Henzonja is a skilled shooter with athleticism and room to grow in his overall offensive game. He already has good size but still room to add to his frame, making him a good combination of production and potential. The Nuggets might prefer to add to their frontcourt, but that option wasn’t as enticing given how the first six picks played out.

8. Detroit Pistons

Justise Winslow. 8. player. 64. This might represent a best-case scenario for the Pistons. Winslow very easily could go ahead of the Pistons but if he is available, he would be a near no-brainer. A lot of talk has been how the Pistons might go about the potential need to replace <a rel=. Small Forward. Duke

9. Charlotte Hornets

Arizona. Stanley Johnson. 9. player. 170. Johnson’s combination of size, strength and athleticism means the Hornets could use him in a variety of ways. He could develop into a lockdown defender and can develop his offensive game if he becomes more efficient finishing at the rim.. Small Forward

10. Miami Heat

10. player. 110. The third former Kentucky Wildcat to go in the top ten, Booker gives the Heat an option behind <a rel=. Shooting Guard. Kentucky. Devin Booker
