2012 NBA Mock Draft: CBS Sends Moe Harkless To Wolves

The Minnesota Timberwolves have a solid core of players so their 18th overall pick in the 2012 NBA draft can be used to pick up a solid role player to help them back on the road to contention. Fortunately, there'll be plenty of solid players in the middle of the first round this season.

The question is, will the Timberwolves take an already polished guy or someone who is more raw but has higher upside? CBSSports.com thinks they'll be taking a very high upside kid, in their new post-combine 2012 NBA Mock Draft they give the Timberwolves St. John's Red Storm forward Moe Harkless:

Moe Harkless, SF, St. John's: Harkless has loads of potential. He's long, will become a better shooter -- and is a high-character kid.

Harkless was a solid nightly performer for the Red Storm in 2011-12, snagging 15.5 points in over 30 minutes per game as a freshman.

With so many options on the table, there should be a whole mess of names being projected to go to the Wolves when it's all said and done. There's no decision of 'Anthony Davis to the Hornets' ease at 18th overall.
