A close friend of mine, who's a huge college/NBA fan and whose basketball opinion I trust, has been hyping up Harkless for months. He loves his game and raw ability and thinks his potential is through the roof, but that it'll take a bit for things to come together. Accordingly, he says Harkless would easily be a top-10 -- maybe even top-5 -- pick in next year's draft if he stayed another season in college. Putting up 15 points and close to 9 rebounds per game (including 30 and 13 against Duke) on 44.5% shooting as a freshman is quite impressive. Lots of upside with this kid.

Also like that the Sixers were able to capitalize on Moultrie's slide and snag him from the Heat. Great value, especially considering the future first rounder traded away is lottery protected for the next three seasons.
