2012 NBA Mock Draft: Andrew Nicholson, St. Bonaventure, Projected To Cavaliers

Andrew Nicholson will be looking to make the jump from St. Bonaventure to the NBA next season. The 2012 NBA Draft is less than two weeks away, and Jonathon Givony of Draft Express recently published a mock draft for Yahoo! Sports. He has Nicholson going in the first round, to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

"The Cavs seemingly need everything except a starting point guard at this stage, and adding some size to the frontcourt wouldn't be a bad idea. Nicholson is big enough to operate alongside Tristan Thompson and a good enough shooter to play with Anderson Varejao."

Another local player, Moe Harkless, from St. John's, is projected to go in the first round as well. Givony has him going three picks earlier to the Boston Celtics.
