2012 NBA Lottery Mock Draft 2/16

Posted by James Rowe on February 16, 2012 – 4:50 pm in: 2012

1 Charlotte Bobcats- Anthony Davis PF/C Kentucky* 6’11 225lbs

Michael Jordan has put together one of the least talented rosters in the NBA, and adding Davis to build around with Walker is the right selection here.

2 New Orleans Hornets- Andre Drummond PF/C UCONN* 6’11 270lbs

Drummond hasn’t lived up to the #1 pick type potential some say he had, but you can’t deny his athleticism that could make him an All Star.

3 Washington Wizards- Harrison Barnes SF UNC** 6’8 225lbs

Vesely will take some time before he contribute and might end up as a PF in the NBA, and a SF like Barnes could really help this team all around.

4 Detroit Pistons- Thomas Robinson PF Kansas*** 6’8 240lbs

Robinson might be the player of the year in college basketball, and has shown he can be a force down low at PF.

5 New Jersey Nets- Jeremy Lamb SG UCONN** 6’5 190lbs

Another wing that can score is needed to hopefully pair with Deron Williams, and Lamb will leave UCONN since they won’t play in the tournament next year.

6 Toronto Raptors- Austin Rivers PG/SG Duke* 6’4 200lbs

Rivers might stay another year at Duke, but I really like his potential in the NBA and would help a team like the Raptors.

7 Sacramento Kings- Perry Jones III SF/PF Baylor** 6’10 230lbs

PJ3 is a great fit as a potential SF and PF for the Kings, and would provide them with some more defense and rebounding.

8 Cleveland Cavilers- Jared Sullinger PF/C Ohio State** 6’10 280lbs

Sullinger stays in state with the Cavs here, and can be the Center of the future for this franchise.

9 Phoenix Suns- Michael Kidd-Gilchrist SG/SF Kentucky* 6’6 215lbs

MKG would do great in the Suns offense, and can play some SG and SF right away for them.

10 Milwaukee Bucks- Brad Beal SG Florida* 6’4 205lbs

Another shooter to go with Jennings could be a great addition, and Beal might be the best pure shooter in this draft.

11 Utah Jazz(f/GSW)- Terrence Jones SF/PF Kentucky** 6’9 240lbs

Jones can play right away for the Jazz, and improve the SF and PF play depending on the line-up

12 New Orleans Hornets(f/MIN)- Arnette Moultrie PF Mississippi State*** 6’10 240lbs

Moultrie has shot up the board this season, and can potentially be a starting PF in the future for a team like the Hornets.

13 Houston Rockets(f/NYK)- Tyler Zeller PF/C UNC**** 6’11 245lbs

The Rockets need more young big man talent and Zeller can impact the game very well on defense early on.

14 Memphis Grizzlies- John Henson PF UNC*** 6’10 220lbs

Randolph’s injury has really hurt Memphis, and adding a Henson to be his potential replacement and also contribute as a shot blocker
