NEW ORLEANS — With about a month to go before training camp begins, the New Orleans Hornets now have all of their draft picks under contract.

The team announced Thursday it had signed second-round pick Darius Miller (No. 46 overall). The Hornets previously had signed first-round picks Anthony Davis (No. 1) and Austin Rivers (No. 10).

Miller, a 6-foot-8, 225-pound forward, played with Davis at Kentucky, earning a national championship in New Orleans this past spring. He was voted the Southeastern Conference’s Sixth Man of the Year  after averaging 9.9 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game off the bench.

He holds the Kentucky record for most games played at 152 and is 10th all-time at the school with 175 3-pointers made.

He’ll wear No. 2. Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.
