Jared Sullinger, the Ohio State star who would have been a Top six pick if he had entered the draft after his freshman year, fell all the way to Boston at 21. The free-fall for Sullinger was brutal, but the good news is that he’ll go to a playoff team, be paired with an elite point guard (Rondo), and two Hall of Famers (Pierce, Garnett). Sullinger will have plenty of opportunities to contribute.
22. Boston, Fab Melo
23. Atlanta, John Jenkins
24. Dallas (via Cleveland), Jared Cunningham
25. Memphis, Tony Wroten
26. Indiana, Miles Plumlee
27. Philadelphia (via Miami), Arnett Moultrie
28. Oklahoma City, Perry Jones
Interesting fall for Jones. He’ll get to go against Kevin Durant daily in practice. Very great landing spot for Jones. No pressure in OKC.
29. Chicago, Marquis Teague
30. Golden State, Festus Ezeli
