Round 1 staff takes a brief look at each team's pick of the 2010 NBA Draft 1st Round:
1. John Wall - PG

While it comes as no surprise, John Wall will have another opportunity to become the face and leader of a team in transition. He has all the right attributes- size, speed, athleticism- to be a franchise building block and a superstar in this league.
2. Evan Turner - SG

Turner was the nation's best player in college basketball last season and should transition well to the NBA. His versatility and skill set will allow him to contribute right away in Philadelphia's lineup next to Jrue Holiday and Andre Iguodala.
3. Derrick Favors - PF

Favors is still raw, but with his size, athleticism and big-time potential, he could've easily been the No. 2 pick this year. He fits right into new coach Avery Johnson's up-tempo system, but will come off the bench while he hits the weightroom.
4. Wesley Johnson - SF

The pieces fell into place for Minnesota after rumors that both Turner and Johnson were going to be gone by this pick. He's a lengthy wing whose versatility and offensive repertoire will be coveted in this triangle offense.
5. DeMarcus Cousins - C

Maturity and character concerns aside, Cousins is a top two talent and if he works at it, he can be a dominant center at the next level. He has an NBA ready skill set and size. For the second year in a row, the Kings may have the league's rookie of the year.
6. Ekpe Udoh - PF

With unproductive and injury plagued options in their front court, Ekpe Udoh adds a solid defensive weapon to block shots and rebound. Offensively, he is still developing but showed a nice jump shot and improvements in the low blocks in his first season at Baylor.
7. Greg Monroe - PF

Monroe gives the Pistons their best front court prospect in a few years and has a chance to get valuable playing time early. He was the best passing big man in the country last year and ads in nice scoring instincts and rebounding.
8. Al-Farouq Aminu - SF

The Clippers fill a need and a big-time athlete in Aminu who can play both forward spots. He is an excellent rebounder and solid low-post scorer, but needs to fine-tune his perimeter game.
9. Gordon Hayward - SF

Hayward is a solid fit for the Jazz- they need a perimeter shooter and a youthful option on the wing and they get both here. His 3-point shooting percentages were erratic as he was keyed in on last year, but will slide in with Deron Williams and Paul Millsap.
10. Paul George - SF

Paul George has superstar potential- great size at 6'9", tremendous athleticism and a fantastic shooter. He has great upside, but still needs game-time experience.
(Rights traded to Oklahoma City)
11. Cole Aldrich - C

The Thunder add a much-needed front court presence here and can contribute right away defensively and on the boards. He was seen as a top pick before he measured in undersized with a great wingspan.
12. Xavier Henry - SG

Henry has good size and he can be a lights-out shooter. The Grizzlies wanted Paul George, but with him on the board, they picked up one of the draft's next best shooters. He can play the 2 or the 3 at the next level backing up/replacing OJ Mayo and Rudy Gay.
13. Ed Davis - PF

Toronto scores a big win here as they swiped up Ed Davis who was a potential top ten pick. He has a similar frame to Chris Bosh when he entered the league, but he will be an active defensive presence and rebounder.
14. Patrick Patterson - PF

With his newly developed inside-outside game, Patterson has lots of value here. He is a strong, physical rebounder and a high character player.
15. Larry Sanders - PF

With the additions of wings Corey Maggette and Chris Douglas-Roberts, the Bucks address a need by drafting Sanders and filling a need at power forward. He's a lengthy (7'6" wingspan) shot-blocker, a perfect fit for the Bucks defensive mindset.
(Rights traded to Portland)
16. Luke Babbit - SF

Babbit would have been a nice pick for Minnesota, but he was shipped off to Portland. The Trail Blazers make out nicely here, adding versatility in Babbit with his ability to play both forward spots and score inside and out, but also some front court toughness in Ryan Gomes.
Rights will be shipped to Washington)
17. Kevin Seraphin - PF

The Bulls will ship Kevin Seraphin to the Washington Wizards along with Kirk Hinrich. Seraphin is a tremendous rebounder and shot blocker, but offensively, he doesn't do much outside five feet.
(Rights traded to LA Clippers)
18. Eric Bledsoe - PG

For a future 1st Round pick, this is a great move for the Clippers- they add an extremely athletic point guard to back-up Baron Davis and eventually take over for him. LA is unsure how much gas is in the tank for Davis, but Bledsoe is relatively untapped, playing a supportive role behind Wall and Cousins.
19. Avery Bradley - SG

At this point in the draft, Bradley is of great value. He is not only a very good athlete and a great defensive force, but he can score in a variety of ways. He struggled a bit adjusted to the college game, but will fit nicely into the Celtics backcourt.
20. James Anderson - SG

With an aging backcourt, James Anderson slips right into the Spurs laps at No. 20. He was one of the best scoring guards in the country last season and should contribute right away.
Rights traded to New Orleans)
21. Craig Brackins - PF

Last season, he was a potential lottery pick and this year, due to constant double teams and poor guard play, he slips down a bit. He is a versatile inside-outside scorer who is also an excellent rebounder.
22. Elliot Williams - SG

Portland has been high on Williams for a while, in fact, he did not really work out for many other teams. The Trail Blazers see Williams as a point guard so he will likely need some time to develop and fine-tune his skills and leadership further.
(Rights traded to Washington)
23. Trevor Booker - PF

A bit undersized, but a potential high pick if he had another inch or two to him. He is a physical big man, but he can also step away from the hoop and score it.
(Rights traded to New Jersey)
24. Damion James - SF

James was one of the most dominant players in all of college basketball last season with his low-post and mid-range game as well as his potent rebounding. He can contribute immediately on the defensive end.
(Rights will be traded to Dallas)
25. Dominique Jones - SG

Dominique Jones is an athletic, scoring machine. He is one of the best slashers in this year's draft, but he can also fill out the stat sheet running the half court offense and rebounding the ball well from the guard spot.
(Rights traded to New Orleans)
26. Quincy Pondexter - SF

The Thunder have traded Quincy Pondexter to the Hornets as part of the Cole Aldrich transaction. He is one of the best athletes in the draft and has great length as a 6'7" swing man. He needs to develop his perimeter shot, but will be a better fit for the team than Julian Wright.
(Rights traded to Atlanta)
27. Jordan Crawford - SG

Atlanta gets the potential replacement to free agent Joe Johnson with this pick in Jordan Crawford and a dynamic scorer. He is a combo guard with excellent, deep range on his jump shot.
28. Greivis Vasquez - PG

Vasquez has good size at 6'6" and instincts, but he tested out extremely poor athletically and who will he defend at the next level?
29. Daniel Orton - C

The Magic took one of the big men who took a giant fall down our draft board. He suffered a knee injury and didn't perform that great in workouts, but he has size and length and can develop behind Dwight Howard. If he stayed another year at Kentucky and continued to work on his body, he could have been a lottery pick.
(Rights traded to Minnesota)
30. Lazar Haywood - SF

With better players on the board, the Wiz should have gone else where, but Hayward is a solid role player. He can scorer both inside and out and fights for position and rebounds well for his size.
Round 2 staff takes a brief look at each team's pick of the 2010 NBA Draft 2nd Round:
(Rights traded to Oklahoma City via Atlanta)
31. Tibor Pleiss - C

It was rumored that the Thunder had made the German center a promise that they were going to take him. He has legitimate size and skills on the defensive end, but he has much to learn still offensively.
32. Dexter Pittman - C

The Heat, among others, love Pittman's size at 6'11", 300 pounds, but also his length, as he recorded a 7'6" wingspan at the Chicago pre-draft camp. If he can continue to chisel his body, he could be a force to be reckoned with.
33. Hassan Whiteside - C

The Kings may have had the best draft after locking up Cousins with the No. 5 pick and then Whiteside here. He is a 7-footer with a 7'7" wingspan. While he is immature, both emotionally and physically, he is a nice risk/reward pick here.
34. Armon Johnson - PG

The Blazers needed some depth at the point guard spot behind and to eventually replace Andre Miller. Johnson is a scoring guard who will need to be developed into a true point guard, but is one of the draft's better athletes.
(Rights traded to Minnesota)
35. Nemanja Bjelica - SF

At 6'10", not only does the Serbian have good size, but also great skills as a point forward. While he isn't the most athlete prospect or the strongest, he is a solid passer and shooter.
36. Terrico White - SG

Detroit has been looking for a point guard to not only backup Rodney Stuckey but eventually shift him to the 2-guard and White may be the guy. He's one of the best athletes in the draft, but fell to the 2nd Round after a so-so sophomore season.
37. Darington Hobson - SF

Hobson is a versatile player, being able to play three positions on the floor and fill up the stat sheet with points, rebounds and assists. He isn't a great shooter, nor is his frame filled out, but give him a year or two to develop and he could be a top eight man in the Bucks' rotations.
38. Andy Rautins - SG

Coach Mike D'Antoni gets the long-range shooter he coveted, perhaps the best shooter in the entire draft.
39. Landry Fields - SF

Landry Fields - SF

This is perhaps the biggest reach of the 2010 NBA Draft. Landry is a great scorer, especially from the perimeter and he is a play maker, but he was not a highly rated prospect, especially for this spot in the draft if any.
40. Lance Stephenson - SG

Stephenson was a huge name coming out of high school and really grew as a freshman at Cincinnati, despite his woeful shooting. In his workouts, he looked very natural scoring the ball with ease.
41. Jarvis Varnado - PF

Varnado could have slid into the late 1st Round, but instead falls into the 40s. Next to Hassan Whiteside, Varnado was the 2nd best shot blocker in the country last season. He stays out of foul trouble with his long arms and defensive timing.
42. Da'Sean Butler - SF

Simply put, Butler is a player. He has awkward mechanics, but he has ice in his veins, hitting numerous winning shots this season, including the game-winner for the Mountaineers as they won the Big East Tournament. His ACL injury should have him back after the new year.
43. Devin Ebanks - SF

Beginning the 2009-10 season, Ebanks was a potential top 10 pick, but his dreadufl perimeter shot had him free-falling down draft boards. With his athleticism and length, he can contribute on the defensive end and one day develop into the offensive player we once thought he would become.
44. Jerome Jordan - C

This pick is rumored to be heading to the New York Knicks. He is a talented big man with good athleticism and length, but unfortunately, he never put it all together for the Golden Hurricanes.
45. Paulao Prestes - C

The Brazilian is a wide body at 6'10", 265-pounds, who will need another year or two before making it over to Minnesota.
46. Gani Lawal - PF

Had he stayed in the draft last year, Lawal would have been a late 1st Round pick, but he slips to the mid-2nd Round this season. He is a solid rebounder who is still pretty raw offensively. He is a good fit for Phoenix's offense.
47. Tiny Gallon - PF

Gallon is a deceiving player- at 6'10", 300 pounds you would think he is a low-post nightmare, but in fact, he has a soft touch from the perimeter and moves his feet well. If he were to drop a few pounds and shape up, he could be of great value here.
48. Latavious Williams - SF

Miami made history by taking Williams as the first player ever drafted from the NBA D-League. He is a superb athlete and a good rebounder, and still developing his perimeter game.
49. Ryan Richards - PF

Richards was a name that was thought could sneak into the 1st Round with his great NBA combine workouts, but he is still young and inexperienced.
(Rights traded to Toronto)
50. Solomon Alabi - C

Toronto may have gotten the pick of the Draft here, letting the 7-footer fall this far before trading for him. Offensively, he is raw and developing, but defensively, he can rebound and alter shots around the paint.
(Rights traded to Indiana)
51. Magnum Rolle - PF

The former-LSU forward is a very good athlete and strong rebounder, who did not get a lot of attention because he is already 24 years old.
52. Luke Harangody - PF

Harangody may be one of the most storied collegiate players of all time and finally and perhaps surprisingly, he hears his name called. He is an unorthodox and undersized power forward, but Boston will find a way to use him.
53. Pape Sy - SF

We had Sy ranked just outside of our Top 100, which shows you he is a bit of a reach going at No. 53. He is an athlete point-forward type, but still very raw all around.
54. Willie Warren - PG

From last year to this year, Warren's stock has taken a complete turn for the worse. He was seen as a potential lottery pick last year and struggled tremendously this season without Blake Griffin by his side. He struggled with his shot, turnovers, injuries and disputes with Jeff Capel.
55. Jeremy Evans - SF

Evans is another player who was drafted late who was not on our Big Board. He is an excellent athlete, but just 195 pounds.
56. Hamady N'diaye - C

His 7'4" wingspan helped his stock, but N'diaye can be an interior defensive force that will block and alter many shots.
(Rights traded to Oklahoma City)
57. Ryan Reid - PF

Reid is a relatively unheralded 6'9" power forward from Florida State who averaged under 7 points and 4 rebounds last year as a senior. He does not offer much at the next level.
(Rights will be traded to Denver)
58. Derrick Caracter - PF

Caracter is a talented big man and lots of size, but scouts have also questioned his attitude after he was run out of Louisville. He worked hard and upped his stock at UTEP enough to get drafted. Good value here.
59. Stanley Robinson - SF

His hops and athleticism are some of the best in the Draft, but he has little fundamentals to fall back on. While he impressed at times with his perimeter shot, he really shot poorly in all of his workouts leading to his downfall.
60. Dwayne Collins - PF

A bit undersized, but Collins is a beast down low. He is a tough, physical athlete who attacks the rim on offense and is an above-average rebounder.
