2012 NBA Mock Draft: Damian Lillard Lands With New Orleans In SB Nation's Mock

Weber State point guard Damian Lillard is one of the top PG prospects in the 2012 NBA Draft, and now that the NBA Draft Lottery is over teams will be honing in the prospects they like best. The landscape will change when draft camps and workouts heat up, but Tom Ziller of SB Nation has already projected the lottery picks in his latest 2012 NBA Mock Draft.

In this version, Lillard comes off the board at No. 10 overall to the New Orleans Hornets, which is one pick before North Carolina PG Kendall Marshall is selected by the Portland Trail Blazers. Here is what Ziller had to say about the Lillard selection:

10. NEW ORLEANS HORNETS (via Minnesota): DAMIAN LILLARD

The free agent point guard market is notoriously tough every year; Dell Demps, New Orleans' GM, has to understand this, and should respond accordingly by picking up one of the two top PGs expected to be available in this range. Lillard, Eric Gordon and Anthony Davis. That's not a bad rebound haul.
