2012 NBA Mock Draft: Phoenix Suns Pick Austin Rivers

Austin Rivers and the Phoenix Suns have certainly been rumored a lot as a future pair in the 2012 NBA Draft. Rivers seems a natural fit for a Phoenix team that loves to move the ball offensively. Rivers would be able to flow within the offense and utilize his solid shooting guard mentality to create either off-the-dribble or off-the-ball.

The latest mock from DraftExpress seems to confirm that Rivers and the Suns is a good fit from the standards of the outsiders, as Rivers goes to Phoenix with the 13th pick. Since Phoenix has only one pick, it's best to spend it on someone they know will pan out as an NBA player. It's a safe bet that Rivers will be around in the years to come.
