NBA Mock Draft 2012: Kyle O'Quinn Projected To Be Picked By Miami Heat At No. 27

While the Miami Heat are now one win away from their second NBA championship, the NBA Draft is fast approaching next Thursday. The Heat, while looking like the best team in NBA at times, could always use a little more help in the front court.

Tom Ziller of SB Nation released his most recent mock draft on Wednesday. In that mock he said that the Miami Heat would select Norfolk St. Spartans center Kyle O'Quinn with the No. 27 overall draft pick.


Miami is clearly trolling Boston here.

O'Quinn was a four year player for the Spartans, averaging 15.9 points and 10.4 rebounds per game his senior year. The 6'10", 240 pound center scored 26 points and grabbed 14 rebounds in Norfolk State's upset of the Missouri Tigers in the NCAA Tournament last March. He also averaged 57.3 percent from the field his senior season and shot almost 70 percent from the foul line.

If the Heat draft him, they should be getting a player that will work hard every day to show that he can be a great player in the NBA.
