2012 NBA Draft Results: Arnett Moultrie Selected By Heat With No. 27 Pick, Will Be Traded To Sixers

With the No. 27 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, the Miami Heat selected Arnett Moultrie from Mississippi State. The Heat will reportedly send him to the Philadelphia 76ers.

Moultrie is an active, athletic big man who has some skills but doesn't figure to be a great defender, rebounder or bruiser at the NBA level. The Sixers will reportedly send Miami a future first-round pick and the No. 45 in this draft to take Moultrie, who slots in behind Elton Brand (who may be waived via amnesty), Spencer Hawes (who is a free agent) and Thaddeus Young (who is sorta kinda a small forward).
