2012 NBA Mock Draft: Suns Select Jeremy Lamb According to SI's Sam Amick

The Phoenix Suns have a number of different paths they can take in the 2012 NBA Draft, but according to Sports Illustrated's NBA guru Sam Amick, the Suns will be taking shooting guard Jeremy Lamb out of the University of Connecticut.

Here is Amick's take on Lamb and how he fits into the Suns overall scheme.

PICK TEAM POSITION PLAYER CLASS HEIGHT WEIGHT
13 SG
Jeremy Lamb
Connecticut
So. 6-5 179
While Waiters could be gone before the Suns have a chance to grab him, there is no shortage of talented two-guards from which to choose. Lamb is a smooth and athletic scorer (38-inch vertical) whose 6-11 wingspan gives him serious upside on the defensive end, too. He's jockeying for position here with Ross, whom I had going to Phoenix in Mock 1.0.

He certainly is a proven talent, and plays much more like a lion than a lamb. Nevertheless, Phoenix would be making a good call if they took Lamb as their first round selection.
