Draft rumors: Hornets’ No. 11 pick available

Yahoo! Sports [1] reports that the Hornets are listening to offers for the No. 11 pick because they need money. The pick probably would come with the requirement that the acquiring team take on the salary of former Celtic James Posey [2] or Julian Wright [3]. This comes on the heels of rumors that star point guard Chris Paul [4] could be traded if the right deal comes along.

Yahoo! also reports that the Kings have settled on Kentucky big man DeMarcus Cousins [5] with the fifth pick.

The New York Daily News [6]Frank Isola reports that the Knicks, without a first-round pick, are looking to find a way into the first round, with their sights set on Iowa State forward Craig Brackins, New Mexico small forward Darinngton Hobson or Maryland guard Greivis Vasquez.
