2012 NBA Draft: Sixers Trade For Arnett Moultrie

I wonder if that went in.

UPDATE [11:18]: The future first that the Sixers traded is lottery-protected until 2015. If the Heat don't get a pick by 2015, they'll get a second rounder from the Sixers in the following two drafts, according to Chad Ford.

The Philadelphia 76ers have traded a future first rounder and the 45th overall pick to the Miami Heat for Arnett Moultrie, from Mississippi State – the 27th pick in the 2012 NBA Draft.

Arnett Moultrie worked out for the Sixers, and ranked 10th on my 'top 35 Sixers workouts' list. Here's what I had to say about him:

Moultrie's an interesting guy. There have been questions about effort and consistency throughout his three-year college career, but he has an intriguing skillset - one that would fit with the Sixers nicely. (His 38 inch vertical is pretty explosive, especially from a big man).

The Sixers need a big man who can protect the rim, rebound and finish at the basket. 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.

Moultrie went ranked 19 on our Official Liberty Ballers Draft Board, and unranked on our Community Big Board. Draft Express has his 'best case' scenario as Kris Humphries and worst case as Jason Thompson.

Here's a nice scouting video on Moultrie. Grade the pick below.
