Who would you pick as the best 2nd round draft pick (40th and above) from the last decade?
My Picks are (in no particular order)

Marc Gasol : Picked 48th in 2007
Goran Dragic : picked 45th in 2008
Paul Millsap : picked 47 in 2006
Monta Ellis : picked 40th in 2005
Mo Williams : picked 47th in 2003

Yea Manu could definitely be the best but was drafted in 1999. Easily among the best Ever.

It shows how limited the success is of these picks. Lets round up and say there are about 10-15 players taken in the 40-60 range the last decade. That means out of 200 draft picks, about 5-7.5% of them worked out out which isnt terrible by itself. There are some diamonds in the rough.

Isiah Thomas was the last pick im the draft a few years back. Quite the find. Parsons was a 2nd rounder, but not sure about the 40's range.

Steve Kerr was spot on about Dragic.

I forgot all about Isaiah Thomas! Parsons was picked at 38. I thought of him. A great pick up at 38

Micheal Redd was pretty damn good for a while, he was taken in the 40ish range if i'm not mistaken.

Stephen Jackson was also great for a 43rd peak but he was drafted years ago

Isiah Thomas, Marcin Gortat, Ellis, Millsap, Lou Williams, Lance Stephenson, and Gasol come to mind with some guys just missing the cut Boozer, Parsons, , Asik, and Deandre Jordan
