NBA Mock Draft 2012: Kentucky's Terrence Jones Could Fall To Timberwolves?

The Minnesota Timberwolves pick No. 18 in the NBA Draft on June 28th meaning they will have a dynamic draft board as they wait to see which players fall down the board to remain available when the Wolves pick.

Minnesota has plenty of young talent at every spot on the floor with some interesting decisions to make surrounding some of their young wing players who have not developed as quickly as hoped. The jury is still out on Derrick Williams after his rookie season showed flashes of great play but nothing consistent. Wesley Johnson is trending toward a full-fledged disappointment as another young, athletic big forward for the Wolves.

Could Minnesota take chance on another talented forward carrying question marks into the draft?

According to NBA.com's Mock Draft 1.0 by Scott Howard-Cooper, Minnesota may do just that with Kentucky's Terrence Jones picked to go to the Timberwolves at No. 18.

Jones, considered a possibility to go high in the lottery last season, has a lot of talent hidden in there somewhere. It's a reasonable risk this late.
