2012 NBA Mock Draft: Sixers Select Austin Rivers, From Duke

The Philadelphia 76ers own three picks in the upcoming NBA Draft – 15th, 45th and 54th overall. With so much uncertainty surrounding the team, the Sixers should be looking to take the best player available with each of their selections.

Draft Express recently published a new mock draft. Here’s who they have the Sixers taking at their respective selections:

15. Austin Rivers, Guard, Duke

45. JaMychal Green, Power Forward, Alabama

54. William Buford, Shooting Guard, Ohio State

Rivers has been in the spotlight since his high school days, when he was a top college recruit. The son of Boston Celtics head coach, Doc Rivers, has been universally projected to go somewhere in the mid-to-late first round.

Interestingly, DX has the Sixers passing on uber-talented big man, Perry Jones.
