Duke's Austin Rivers is projected to go the Suns with the No. 13 pick in the latest SB Nation NBA mock draft.

The NBA Draft Lottery still needs to be determined and will be done so on May 30, but as of right now the Phoenix Suns are slotted to pick at the bottom end of the lotter with the No. 13 pick.

SB Nation's Tom Ziller has put out another 2012 NBA mock draft and he has the Suns taking Duke's Austin Powers with their first round selection. The Sun's must be looking at Rivers because HoopsWorld just released their first mock draft and one of their writers also has the Suns taking Rivers.

Rivers is a solid pick, but he may not be the franchise player that the Suns are needing, but outside of getting the No. 1 overall pick and taking Anthony Davis nothing is a sure thing. However, drafting Rivers does fit a position of need for the Suns and he would a good player to help the Suns rebuild.
