16.5 Jeremy Lamb (SG/SF - Hou)

If (when?) Kevin Martin gets traded, Lamb should see a good bump in minute. A grab and stash for the rookie at this point in the draft.
Yes, Warriors sold at last!

16.6 Byron Mullens (FC - CHA)

Mullens stands out among Bobcat bigs in that he has some offensive skill, and the team will clearly need it alongside Haywood and Biyombo. He could very well end up with a standard league impact, but he'll need to knock down the long jumper with consistency and improve his defensive effort.

16.7 Jeff Green (F - BOS)

Definitely worth the shot here for my last pick. The C's have A LOT of faith in his health/ability, dealing him a huge 4 year contract this past summer. Word is he'll be the primary back up to Paul Pierce at SF, while also backing up Brandon Bass at PF - either way, he's getting minutes. Don't really know what to expect from him at this point, but if he gets anywhere near his numbers from just before being traded to Boston a few seasons ago (15.2 PPG, 5.6 REBs, 1 three per, and 43.7/81.8 %'s), then this pick will be a solid payoff.

16.08 Jerryd Bayless (G - MEM)

At a minimum, he's staring at the 6th man role with the Grizz.

16.9 Chase Budinger (GF - MIN)

We'll find out pretty soon how important Budinger will be to Adelman's Princeton offense. That four-out, one-in set requires guys who can shoot and space the floor, and he does just that. Not expecting Roy's knees to hold up over the course of the season, and there should be plenty of minutes available for Budinger on the wings as a result.

16.10 Meyers Leonard (C - POR)

A bit of a homer/lottery pick. There's not a lot of depth at C in Portland, and he may see some inflated minutes for a rookie. Reports from the draft suggested he was more advanced that his final season of basketball showed - let's hope it's true.

16.11 Metta World Peace (SF - LAL)

Crazy Ron is a little older but I think with all the weapons in LA's arsenal this year he should be pretty free to wreak havoc in the lanes and shoot open looks from three. If he can post good steals then he'll have value here, anything else is really a bonus.

16.12 Harrison Barnes (F - GS)

Crowded at the g/f spots in GS, but hes got some game.
