2012 NBA Draft Results: Maurice Harkless Selected By Sixers With No. 15 Pick

With the No. 15 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, the Philadelphia 76ers selected Maurice Harkless from St. John's.

Harkless is a small forward prospect, but he played center last season at St. John's due to size deficiencies for the Red Storm. He drew raves as a scorer despite his lack of a jump shot. He's also got the size and physicality to become a strong NBA defender, provided he maintains his good lateral quickness (a key in guarding the modern NBA small forward). As with so many players of similar ilk, his ability to stretch his range out to the three-point line will be critical to his offensive success. It worked for Kawhi Leonard in San Antonio.
