6'9" SF, So., Wake Forest
An aggressive young tweener who attacks the basket and gets to the foul line, Aminu will be a steal if he develops a three-point shot. If Blake Griffin, the No. 1 pick in 2009, recovers from the broken left kneecap that sidelined him last season, L.A. could have an exciting frontcourt for years to come.

6'8" SF, So., Butler
Hayward is a shooter who knows how to play, and his stock has been rising ever since his stellar performance in the Final Four. While he could replace Andrei Kirilenko, who's in the final year of his contract, don't be surprised if Utah tries to move up even higher in this draft.
10 | PACERS
6'9" PF, So., UNC
The Pacers need a point guard, but this is the wrong draft to try to fill that hole. So Davis will be their man—a long power forward with soft hands and the ability to defend either of the big positions. He'll be a project offensively, but his physical tools make him worth the investment.
