15. Wenyen Gabriel, PF/C

Wenyen Gabriel played for three NBA teams last season, but end the year with Los Angeles Lakers. The 6-foot-9 big man has been a fringe NBA player up to this point in his three season career. It feels unlikely that the 25-year-old will be rejoining the Lakers next season and he’s not the type of big man the Philadelphia 76ers need.

14. Hamidou Diallo, SG

The Pistons have another player who has a team option this offseason in Hamidou Diallo. The 23-year-old can score well around the paint, but hasn’t shown he can be a 3-point shooter. At 6-foot-5, Diallo has the tools to become a good 3-and-D wing. However, More likely than not, Detroit will bring back Diallo next season.

Hot. Draft: 3 shooting guard prospects to consider with 23rd pick. light

13. Stanley Johnson, F

For a Lakers that struggled defensively last season, Stanley Johnson was one of the best defenders on their roster. The 26-year-old is a former lottery selection is a bust, but he’s an above-average defender and there’s a chance the L.A.L. could bring the 6-foot-6 forward back next season.

12. Dean Wade, PF

The Cleveland Cavaliers were a supersized team and Dean Wade was the fifth big man in that rotation for most of the season. The 25-year-old is a stretch big standing at 6-foot-9 and his ability to shoot from downtown. He’s been a part of their rebuild so it wouldn’t be surprising if they bring him.

11. Kessler Edwards, SF

The Brooklyn Nets need cheap talent around their stars. Kessler Edwards was that for them last season and will probably be that again next season. At 6-foot-8 he already has skills as a scorer, but the 21-year-old needs to continue to develop on both ends of the floor. If the Nets are foolish to let him go, the Sixers should pursue him.
