The Sixers selected Moe (Maurice) Harkless with the 15th overall pick. They also traded a future first rounder and the 45th pick in this year's draft, to the Miami Heat, for the rights to Arnett Moultrie. I briefly wrote about both players when the Sixers worked them out:
Harkless projects as a good wing defender in the NBA, a good rebounder, and a terror in transition, but it remains to be seen whether he will develop any type of offensive game.
Unfortunately – despite athleticism suggesting he should – Moultrie is an underwhelming shot-blocker and defensive rebounder. However; he's a very good offensive rebounder and can finish at the basket via cuts, offensive rebounds and alley-oops – things Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner would immediately benefit from.
