2012 NBA Mock Draft: Terrence Ross To Minnesota Timberwolves, Tony Wroten To Charlotte Bobcats

Two Washington Huskies will be highly sought after in the 2012 NBA Draft. Where will they end up?

Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress released his latest mock for Yahoo, and it has the two Huskies being picked midway through the draft. Ross goes to the Minnesota Timberwolves midway through the first round with the 18th pick and will provide Minnesota with much needed offensive versatility from the wing as a spot up shooter and versatile perimeter defender.

More on Ross here.

After eight straight years of missing the playoffs, and with general manager David Kahn entering the final year of his contract, Minnesota will need to make some moves this summer to improve its roster and finally break its postseason drought. The Timberwolves are especially weak at the wing positions, where they could use some additional scoring to take the heat off Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio.

Terrence Ross has excellent size for the wing at 6-foot-7 and a picture-perfect stroke to go with it. His athleticism would make him a favorite for lob passes from the likes of both Love and Rubio, making this a no-brainer selection if he falls this far.

Later in this mock, the Bobcats take Wroten with the first pick in the second round. Since Charlotte is still years away from contending for anything, it makes sense to take a project like Wroten who can hopefully develop into a franchise point guard down the line.
