It's been a while, and not on BC's watch, but the list is quite scary:
2000 - MoPete @ #21 (the best late pick in our history)
2001 - Bradley @ #17
2002 - Rush @ #20 (traded to LA for an ever worse player in Jeffries)
2005 - Joey Graham @ #16
Please note that these are all before or close to #20. If the season were to end today, Orlando would pick @ #24, Dallas - @ #23 and LA - @ #21. Still want those picks?
P.S.: In all the years of this franchise, we've failed to convert a single second-rounder into an even remotely serviceable player and also managed to fuck up quite a few lottery picks (Radojević and Araujo come to mind).
