2012 NBA Draft Results: Picks 11-20 Complete Recap

The second third of the 2012 NBA Draft was just as unpredictable as the first.

In a mildly surprising move, the Portland Trail Blazers opted to select Meyers Leonard, someone who most believed wasn’t as good as Tyler Zeller, with the No. 11 overall pick. The Houston Rockets followed that up by taking Jeremy Lamb at No. 12.

A lot of people had Houston eventually landing Lamb, but most had them doing it later in the draft.

At No. 13, the Phoenix Suns began to prepare for life without Steve Nash by taking Kendall Marshall – the best pass-first point guard in this draft. John Henson, a guy who most had going in the top 10, fell right into Milwaukee’s lap at No. 14. The Philadelphia 76ers, at No. 15, opted for St. John’s standout Moe Harkless.

In a mildly surprising move, Houston selected Royce White -- who most had going somewhere in the early 20s -- at No. 16. Then, in our first notable trade, the Dallas Mavericks selected Tyler Zeller at No. 17 and promptly moved him to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

At No. 18, with their final first round pick, the Rockets selected at Terrence Jones. With the No. 19 pick, the Orlando Magic selected Andrew Nicholson. And with the No. 20 pick, the Denver Nuggets wrapped up this portion of the draft by selecting Evan Fournier.
