2011 NBA Mock Draft: Phoenix Suns Select Jordan Hamilton with 13th Pick
Weight: 220 lbs.
Comparison: Kyle Korver/Martell Webster
Hamilton has been a fantastic offensive player this year, averaging 19 points and eight rebounds a game. He shot 44 percent from the field and 39 percent from three-point range.
His numbers are pretty similar to what Kyle Korver put up in college (plus they have similar builds), however, I think he might develop into a better all-around player.
The Suns are on the precipice of a total rebuilding. I think they'd love a point guard here, but I have none left that warrant a lottery pick.
Finding Nash's successor is probably a pretty big priority, but adding talent on the wings may be just as important.
Vince Carter and Grant Hill are both way beyond their primes, and Phoenix needs someone to fill in when they're gone.
