2012 NBA Mock Draft: Philadelphia 76ers Linked To Terrance Jones

The 2012 NBA Draft is nearing as the season will come to a close in the next few weeks. With that time comes the mock drafts, and very few are legitimate like the one over at

According to their mock, the Philadelphia 76ers are linked to Terrance Jones out of the University of Kentucky with the 15th pick of the first round.

The Sixers could use a long athletic forward to pair with Andre Iguodala (if they don't trade him). Jones is a 6-foot-9 power forward who would fit in great alongside the other pieces already in place. Elton Brand could be moved to the bench where he could be more effective playing less minutes.

Jones would immediately make the bench deeper and the starters better with his bevy of abilities on the inside.

Also in the second round, the Sixers were mocked to take Kostas Papanikolaou, a small forward from Greece and Nihad Djedovic, also a small forward who hails from Bosnia.
