Deseret News writer Mike Sorensen's mock 2014 NBA draft: Jazz will select Dante Exum with 5th pick
21. Oklahoma City: Tyler Ennis, PG Syracuse — The Thunder can use some help at the backup point guard position.
22. Memphis: T.J. Warren, SF, North Carolina State — The Grizzlies need a good wing player and Warren is one of the best available at this spot.
23. Utah: Cleanthony Early, SF, Wichita State — If the Jazz get Exum, they’ll be looking for size with this pick and in Early they get a big guy who can score and also has a cool name. C.J. Wilcox is a possibility here, but the Jazz hope he’s still around at 35.
24. Charlotte: K.J. McDaniels, SF, Clemson — He’s an athletic wing player who has moved into the first round with his play this spring.
25. Houston: Kyle Anderson, PF, UCLA — He’s a versatile player who can play anything from the one to the four and can pass and rebound well.
26. Miami: Mitch McGary, Michigan — The Heat need some more bulk on the inside and the 6-10, 250-pound McGary provides that.
27. Phoenix: P.J. Hairston, SG, North Carolina — With their third pick of the first round, the Suns take a wing player who can shoot.
28. Los Angeles Clippers: Jordan Adams, SG, UCLA — The third Bruin player taken in the first round would love to stay close to home and play for one of the West’s best.
29. Oklahoma City: Jerami Grant, SF, Syracuse — The Thunder might as well take another Syracuse player, one who can help on the inside.
30. San Antonio Spurs: Spencer Dinwiddie, Colorado — The Spurs are famous for finding diamonds in the rough and may get one in the wing player from Colorado, who missed most of last season with an injury.
