SBNation NBA Mock Draft: Pick No. 13

2007 NBA Mock Draft
Overall Pick: 13

New Orleans Hornets
Chosen by: Jake from Bullets Forever
SF, Kansas, So.

Jake select Julian Wright for the Hornets and lays out some sound reasoning.
The hole left by Desmond Mason leaving for Free Agency is the Hornets top priority this off-season in my mind. While I would have rather traded down and picked up someone more experienced to help fill that hole, with Wright the Hornets get someone to compliment Peja Stojakovic and allows the coaching staff to focus more of their efforts on project players like Hilton Armstrong and Cedric Simmons.
We're deep in the heart of the draft's no man's land, where teams really need an impact player to rise above mediocrity but are forced to bet their future on upside potential and hope for the best.
