Traded to Miami Heat for No. 26 pick P.J. Hairston and two second round picks.
No. 25 -- Houston Rockets -- Clint Capela, 6-11, 220, Switzerland, power forward
Scouting reports on Capela say that he is an erratic shooter from the field, is an abysmal free-throw shooter and can’t handle the ball. But, like many in the draft, Capela has a whole lot of upside. The 20-year-old can finish near the rim and can run the floor, and he was one of the best rebounders in his league in France. He has the frame to put on muscle, which will be important if he wants to develop his back-to-the-basket game.
Ben Bolch: Gives the Rockets frontcourt depth with Omer Asik bound for New Orleans.
No. 26 -- Miami Heat -- P.J. Hairston, 6-4 1/2, 228, Texas Legends (D-League), shooting guard
Hairston started last season at North Carolina, but he was kicked off the team in December after a litany of police issues, including speeding in a car with marijuana and a handgun in it. But there’s a reason he’s a first-round pick. After leaving North Carolina, he averaged 22 points for the Texas Legends of the D-League. He’s one of the best shooters in this draft, and someone who can develop into a legitimate NBA scorer. Whether his legal problems will follow him, though, is the biggest issue for teams thinking about drafting him.
Traded to Charlotte Hornets for No. 24 pick Shabazz Napier.
Ben Bolch: Troubled former North Carolina star gets to remain a Tar Heel with Hornets.
No. 27 -- Phoenix Suns -- Bogdan Bogdanovic, 6-6, 209, Serbia, small forward
Bogdanovic had a breakout season for Partizan Belgrade in the Adriatic League, but has a big buyout in his contract and might be a player who doesn’t transition to the NBA for a few years. He’s a talented scorer, but not much is known about the 21-year-old’s game.
Ben Bolch: Try not to confuse him with late architect, urbanist and essayist of same name.
No. 28 -- Clippers -- C.J. Wilcox, 6-5, 201, Washington, small forward
Wilcox, 23, was second all-time at Washington in scoring with 1,880 points, and averaged 18.3 points last season. Also was named second All-Pac 12 team his last two seasons.
Ben Bolch: Top-notch shooter gives Clippers a logjam of wing players … for now.
No. 29 -- Oklahoma City Thunder -- Josh Huestis, 6-7, 230, small forward, Stanford
Best known for his defense, he had a school record 190 blocks in his career. Last season, Huestis, 22, averaged 11.2 pounds and 1.92 blocks a game.
Ben Bolch: Defensive specialist also becomes smartest guy in Thunder’s film room.
