The polar opposite of Klay Thompson, Burks will make his living by penetrating and finishing at the rim. He's an explosive leaper with a knack for scoring the basketball, though he's a streaky perimeter shooter at best.
13. Markieff Morris, F, 6-9, Kansas
The defensive-minded twin, he has the size of a typical power forward and the defensive and rebounding skills to go along with it. While Morris can finish around the rim, any other type of offensive game is lacking.
14. Marcus Morris, F, 6-9, Kansas
Considered the more polished of the Morris twins, Marcus is yet another undersized power forward who will try to define his position in the NBA. He's a versatile scorer who has a good handle on the ball for a forward.
15. Kawhi Leonard, F, 6-7, SDSU
INDIANA PACERS (Traded to San Antonio)
Basketball fans in Utah are well aware of Leonard's all-around game. His explosive leaping ability and freakishly long arms give him an edge defensively and on the glass, though his jump shot is still a work in progress.
16. Nikola Vucevic, C, 6-10, USC
The only true center in the draft, Vucevic mixes in a solid mid-range offensive game with good rebounding instincts. At 7-feet and 260 pounds, the 20-year-old is an intriguing developmental prospect.
17. Iman Shumpert, G, 6-5, Ga. Tech
NEW YORK KNICKS
No player has enjoyed such a quick rise up the draft charts as Shumpert, who has the size (6-foot-6) and athleticism to be an elite defensive point guard. His woeful outside shooting is not ideal, but he can score at the rim.
18. Chris Singleton, F, 6-9, Florida St.
The lock-down defender of the draft, Singleton uses his athleticism to guard multiple positions. While his offensive game is a work in progress, his willingness to play full-effort D has him high on many draft boards.
19. Tobias Harris, F, 6-8, Tennessee
CHARLOTTE BOBCATS (traded to Milwaukee)
Another power forward stuck in a small forward's body, Harris is an unselfish player who handles the ball well and has a solid mid-range game. He averaged 15.3 points and 7.3 rebounds per game in his only collegiate season.
20. Donatas Motlejunas, F, 6-10, Lithuania
MINNESOTA TIMBERWOLVES (traded to Houston)
Tall and twiggy, Montiejunas is another Lithuanian big man who projects to be a power forward in the NBA. That is, if he can add some power to his game. Montiejunas is an aggressive scorer who passes well.
21. Nolan Smith, G, 6-2, Duke
One of the nation's more prominent players (thanks to his starting role for Duke), Smith spent most of his college career at point guard, but is versatile enough to play both backcourt positions.
22. Kenneth Faried, F, 6-8, Morehead St.
Another Paul Millsap, anyone? Faried lacks the size to play power forward, but is relentless on the boards and uses his huge wingspan on the defensive end. Faried averaged at least 13 rebounds per game his final three seasons.
23. Nikola Mirotic, F, 6-10, Serbia
HOUSTON ROCKETS (traded to Chicago via Minn.)
One of the best young forwards in Europe, his ability to play both inside and outside as a stretch power forward comes with one catch: he's signed with Real Madrid through the 2016 season.
