"It's rare for the draft's last player to make an NBA impact, but Sacramento hit a home run with Washington point guard Isaiah Thomas last season. He averaged 14.8 points and 5.4 assists in 37 games as a starter for the Kings.
Much, much more often than not, players taken that late barely have NBA careers. Since 2000, nine of 12 didn't even play 15 NBA games. Sorry, Milovan Rakovic, Bryan Bracey, Andreas Glyniadakis, Corsley Edwards, et al.
The Lakers would be lucky to even get a guy such as Turkish center Semih Erden, who was picked last in 2008 by Boston and averaged 3.5 points for Cleveland last season."
