Sports Network: Blazers Take Harrison Barnes, Perry Jones In Mock Draft

103

The Sports Network has released a 2012 NBA Mock Draft, which has the Portland Trail Blazers selecting UNC forward Harrison Barnes with the No. 6 pick and Baylor forward Perry Jones with the No. 11 pick. ------------------------------- 6. - Portland Trail Blazers - Harrison Barnes (North Carolina), small forward (6-8, 220) - Billy King is a nice man but he got fleeced by Portland for this pick and the Blazers will likely go with Barnes, a natural NBA small forward who can team with LaMarcus Aldridge in Rip City. Harrison is a good spot-up jump shooter who could excel in the often forgotten about mid-range game and flash out to the three-point line. ... 11. - Portland Trail Blazers - Perry Jones (Baylor), power forward (6-10, 240) - Early on Jones was considered a possible No. 1 overall pick so the skills are there but he never produced consistently at Baylor, scaring a number of teams off. He's certainly worth a flyer here, however, as a team's second lottery pick. "We need winners," Blazers swingman Wesley Matthews said. "People who are tough. People who don't like losing. Players who, if they lose a shooting drill, they lose their minds. Guys that play with a lot of heart and are unselfish. Guys that will sacrifice personal stuff for the team." ------------------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
