Hornets select UK's Miller with 46th overall pick

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The New Orleans Hornets have selected Kentucky's Darius Miller with the 46th overall pick in Thursday night's NBA draft, making him the sixth Wildcats player drafted.

Miller, a 6-foot-8 forward who played four seasons at Kentucky, will join college teammate Anthony Davis, whom New Orleans selected first overall.

The Hornets acquired the 46th pick in a trade last week that sent center Emeka Okafor and forward Trevor Ariza to Washington. Hornets coach Monty Williams has said he expected the Hornets to find a player in this year's second round who could make their team.

Miller was a full-time starter as a junior, but played mostly a reserve role, averaging 9.9 points, as a senior for Kentucky's 2012 national championship squad.

The Hornets also selected Austin Rivers 10th overall.
