2012 NBA Mock Draft: Terrence Ross To Suns, Tony Wroten Slips To Second Round

The Washington Huskies didn't quite live up to expectations last season on the court, but they did feature numerous NBA prospects every time they took the floor. All experts believe Tony Wroten and Terrence Ross will be selected at the 2012 NBA Draft, but the latest mock draft from Draft Express sees different futures for the two players.

Ross will be taken by the Phoenix Suns with the No. 13 pick in the first round.

The Suns are in a serious transition phase, with many key roster pieces entering free agency, making it difficult to pinpoint just one area of need. Regardless of whether Steve Nash and Aaron Brooks return, their wing rotation could use a serious upgrade, which could make an athletic sharp-shooting prospect like Ross attractive here. Ross refused the Suns' overtures to visit and work out throughout the pre-draft process, but much like with Waiters in Golden State, it doesn't appear that that will prevent Phoenix from picking him here.

Despite being named the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year, Draft Express has Wroten slipping to the second round. Scouts have expressed issues with his lack of position and reported issues as a teammate, which could certainly scare away potential employers.

At the same time, Wroten has as much talent as just about anyone in his draft class and could be a huge steal in the second round should he slip that far. It'll definitely be an interesting story to watch for on Thursday night.

The 2012 NBA Draft is scheduled for June 28.
