Our last one mock draft database was June 8th, when multiple sources had New Orleans taking either Damian Lillard or Jared Sullinger with the 10th pick. Three weeks later, things look a little different.
There's still no real consensus on the tenth pick with guards Austin Rivers, Jeremy Lamb, and Kendall Marshall making multiple appearances. With plenty of uncertainty ahead of the Hornets second pick (will Houston trade into the top 10? Will Golden State go big or small?), that makes sense.
