2009 NBA Mock Draft: Picks 13-14


This is it, folks. Our final installment of the first annual 2009 NBA Mock Draft here at Stock Lemon is here. We've gone through the first twelve picks in the lottery in the last few days, and you can see all of those picks in the upper right hand corner of this site.

Now, it's time to finish mocking the lottery.

13. Pacers: Brandon Jennings, PG, Pallacanestro Virtus Roma

These may be the last two picks in our mock draft, but they could end up being two of the best. Brandon Jennings might be gobbled up as early as nine picks before the Pacers, but then again, he might not be. If he is available at 13, this is a best case scenario for Indiana. Jennings has loads of potential and could be one of the most dynamic point guards for in the game for years to come. First, though, he must develop a consistent jumper and show that he can lead a team and buy in to what works in the NBA. The point guard who left to play in Italy after high school will have to prove that he is mature enough to play in the league. For some, he might be too risky, but for the Pacers at 13, he would be an enormous steal.

14. Suns: Ty Lawson, PG, North Carolina

The Pacers took the flashy point guard, but the Suns will happily grab the safe point guard. Lawson plays excellent defense and is one of the quicker guards in the draft, so even if it's just off the bench for a while, the Suns will be glad to have him. Phoenix will eventually look for Lawson, who took North Carolina all the way, to bring that winning way to the desert and lead the Suns back into the playoffs and out of our lottery mock drafts.

That concludes our 2009 NBA Mock Draft. Again, the rest of the lottery can be found in the upper right hand corner here at Stock Lemon. Be sure to return for more coverage of the 2009 NBA Draft, as we'll likely take a look at some prop bets and have some more information for you on Thursday.
