Our own Jeff Goodman of CBSSports.com reported after the combine:
13. Phoenix Suns
Dion Waiters, SG, Syracuse: Agent Rob Pelinka pulled Waiters from the Chicago combine -- which means his client likely has a promise from someone in the lottery. The word is it may be the Suns, who could use a tough, scoring guard like Waiters.
via Goodman's 2012 NBA Mock Draft: Post-combine evaluations - CBSSports.com.
That was later also reported by Gary Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times.
For the Suns, it's a pretty natural fit, and if they hold to it, it fills a need long-term. It's a bit of a reach and you'd like to see them go more for a power forward with athleticism, but Waiters does have a solid skill set.
Either way, it looks like Waiters will be going top-13. Adjust your mocks accordingly.
