Ruben Patterson, 6'6", F, Cincinnati—They love Harpring, but Patterson boosted his stock by playing well in postseason workouts against Magic Johnson.
Vladimir Stepania, 6'11", C, Olympija Ljubljuna ( Slovenia)—Charlotte needs big men—Vlade Divac and Matt Geiger are free agents, and Anthony Mason is on the block because of clashes with Cowens.
22. CLIPPERS (from Heat)
J.R. Henderson, 6'9", F, UCLA—Scouts say any UCLA kid is a gamble (too soft, too lazy), but the Clips figure a hometown name with genuine talent could help them on and off the court.
23. NUGGETS (from Suns)
Al Harrington, 6'9", F, St. Patrick's High in Elizabeth, N.J.—Denver likes Bryce Drew, but why not use this pick on the kid with the greater potential?
Bryce Drew, 6'3", G, Valparaiso—In workouts, Drew proved he can play the point, but the Spurs don't care where he plays as long as he knocks down perimeter jumpers.
Felipe Lopez, 6'6", G, St. John's—Can Larry Bird pull off another Jalen Rose-like resurrection with this extremely athletic but maddeningly streaky player?
Tyronn Lue, 6'0", G, Nebraska—With L.A. unsettled at the point—Nick Van Exile, anyone?—it craves another playmaker.
Brian Skinner, 6'10", C-F, Baylor—Seattle needs to get creative (i.e., lucky) in its quest for big bodies. UCLA's Jelani McCoy could sneak in here.
Mirsad Turkcan, 6'9", F, Efes Pilsen ( Turkey)—Turkcan, Turkey's top pro player, will provide the chance for a few good headlines even if he can't play a lick.
Ansu Sesay 6'9", F, Mississippi—Sesay dropped because of strong workouts by others. Miles Simon is a possibility here.
