Deke: Demps says 2012 Draft Class is a deep one
As the 2012 NBA Draft approaches, Hornets General Manager Dell Demps is currently setting his draft board and putting the finishing touches on all of his notes on all the players that will be available for Thursday Night’s Draft.
I got to speak with Dell on sports talk to talk about the Hornets and their plans for the draft.
"I do think it is a very deep draft,” said Demps. “We have worked out a lot of players and we are just trying to do all the work we can to get as familiar with the players as we can.”
The Hornets currently own three picks in the 2012 NBA Draft. New Orleans has the #1 overall pick and the 10th pick. Their third and final pick is the 46th overall pick on Thursday night.
Dell went on to talk about the Hornets possible #1 pick in Kentucky’s Anthony Davis as well as what the Hornets might do with the 10th pick in the draft. “We are in a rebuilding stage right now,” Demps said when asked about where his team is right now.
Dell went on to talk about the future of Hornets Guard Eric Gordon and the rest of the Hornets Team.
