Suns Draft Rumors: Austin Rivers Works Out With Hornets, Raptors, Blazers, Wizards, Cavaliers, Not Phoenix

There have been a lot of mock drafts that pair up the Phoenix Suns with Austin Rivers. It makes sense that the team would try and find a talented shooting guard that can keep the team's offense going in the right direction

Chad Ford of ESPN has some interesting tidbits though that suggest that Rivers might be off the board by the time Phoenix wants to take him.

New Orleans has the tenth pick, Toronto has the eighth pick, Portland the sixth pick, Washington the third pick, Cleveland the fourth pick. That is not a good range for Phoenix, who are at the 13th spot and would likely have a lot of trouble grabbing Rivers if one of these teams was ready to make the plunge.
