2014 NBA Mock Draft: Lottery Edition 2.0

4 of 5

10. Charlotte Bobcats select Rodney Hood

The Bobcats are lacking a scorer, with Ben Gordon coming off the books and Gerald Henderson not being a pure scorer. With Hood, they get a guy who is averaging 18.6 points a game and 52.2% from the field as well as shooting 47.9% from deep. Beside Kemba Walker and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, this trio could really push the Bobcats to the next level.

11. Philadelphia 76ers (via Pelicans) select Willey Cauley-Stein

With two picks in the top 11, the 76ers could solidify their front court for many, many years to come. Cauley-Stein is seen as more of a project and a raw prospect. In Philadelphia, he’ll be behind both Randle and Noel. Still, it’s hard to pass on someone with this much potential, and as an advocate of drafting the best player available, I think the 76ers could reap the benefits of taking Stein here down the road.

12. Memphis Grizzlies select James Young

The Grizzlies won’t be in this position come draft time. Right now, they’re struggling without center Marc Gasol, who is set to return relatively soon. Gasol will elevate the team to playoff-caliber. However, if for some reason the Grizzlies can’t get on the right track, they’ll look for athleticism and shooting on the wing, and Young provides just that.
