Ford: Blazers Take Harrison Barnes, Tyler Zeller In Latest Mock Draft

Chad Ford of ESPN.com projects that the Portland Trail Blazers will select UNC forward Harrison Barnes and UNC center Tyler Zeller in his latest 2012 NBA Mock Draft. --------------------------------- No. 6: The Blazers grabbed this pick from the Nets as part of the Gerald Wallace trade. It's top 3 protected so if the Nets win one of the top three spots in the lottery, the pick will revert back to New Jersey/Brooklyn. The Blazers need help at both backcourt positions and at center. Not sure that Barnes really qualifies as a 2-guard and, in some ways, he duplicates what the team has in Nic Batum. But Portland needs shooters and players who can score the basketball and Barnes is terrific at that. No. 11: The Blazers don't have much of anything in the middle. Although Zeller doesn't project to be a star, he is big, runs the floor well and has a soft touch around the basket. --------------------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
