2012 NBA Mock Draft: Moe Harkless, St. John's, Projected To Boston Celtics

In the latest 2012 NBA Mock Draft at SI, St. John's guard/forward Moe Harkless is projected to be selected by the Boston Celtics with the No. 22 pick.

Here's how SI's Sam Amick breaks down the selection:

"With Mickael Pietrus heading into free agency, the athletic, versatile Harkless could slide into the backup small forward spot behind Paul Pierce. The Big East Rookie of the Year averaged 15.3 points last season, but he shot just 44.5 percent overall and 20.2 percent from three-point range. His impact elsewhere entices front-office types who watched him average 8.6 rebounds, 1.4 blocks and 1.6 steals. Numerous executives told me he helped his cause at the combine." (via SI)

Harkless has also recently been linked in a mock draft to the Denver Nuggets who have the No. 20 pick in the first round.
