Rivers will be a good player but STUPID pick. Eric Gordon= future best SG in game. Why add another player who like Gordon has proven he can't play PG full time? They going for a 3 guard lineup or something because Jack is a good starting PG. I have a feeling Rivers is getting traded unless New Orleans is just retarded.

If you don't think the Hornets just became 1000X more interesting to watch with those picks, you're crazy.

Rivers to NO made no sense with Gordon on the roster. Rivers will be a horrible PG and drafting an at best back up at #10 is just dumb.

LMAO. If Hornets refuse to match him that will be such a fail.

Why take Rivers when you have Jack/Vaz/Gordon?

Rivers was a sell tickets/flash pick. But if coach Monty can get him to realize he won't be Kobe from day 1 he just might pan out.

Hornets are matching EG, don't be stupid lol

Best future SG? He's very injury prone, doesn't sound like you're taking that into consideration ;)

Head coach Monty Williams reportedly feels he can convert Rivers to point guard, and start him alongside Eric Gordon in a big backcourt.

So the Hornets just wasted a pick on someone who will be their back up 2 guard at best?
