2012 NBA Mock Draft: PG Damian Lillard Is Headed To Portland, Toronto Or New Orleans

Chad Ford of ESPN has released his latest and final 2012 NBA Mock Draft leading up to Thursday night's big event. According to Ford, PG Damian Lillard appears like a lock No. 6 with the Portland Trail Blazers:

Analysis: The Blazers need a point guard and a big man. They'll have an easy choice here if Drummond goes at No. 5. Lillard is a steady, athletic guard who can shoot the lights out and get to the rim. He had a stellar workout in Portland in front of Paul Allen that really sealed the deal.

Trade Scenarios: GM Neil Olshey told Portland reporters on Wednesday night that it's unlikely the team will trade either of its picks at Nos. 6 or 11.

Blazers' Big Board: 1. Damian Lillard 2. Dion Waiters 3. Andre Drummond

But if the Trail Blazers happen to pass on the dynamic point guard, Ford also foresees him getting strong consideration at No. 8 and No. 10 with the Toronto Raptors and New Orleans Hornets both slotting Lillard high on their big boards at those spots.
