2012 NBA Draft: Celtics Linked To Tony Wroten and Arnett Moultrie

In the latest edition of SB Nation's 2012 NBA Mock Draft by Tom Ziller, the Boston Celtics pick up a pair of talented players in Tony Wroten and Arnett Moultrie with the 21st and 22nd picks in the first round.

Wroten is a guard out of the University of Washington who has a ton of upside. The youngster is a good passer who can get in the lane and subsequently to the line. However, he's not a very accurate free-throw shooter and doesn't have any touch from the outside, a la Rajon Rondo. Wroten is a very raw player who might take a few years to develop.

Moultrie would be a steal if he fell all the way to Boston. The Mississippi State forward is a powerful big man at 6-foot-11 but just 233 pounds. When he fills his frame out, Moultrie might be a dominant presence with his balance and quickness. While he's a good rebounder, he also needs to improve on shooting from the line.

Overall though, this would be a great haul for Doc Rivers and the Celtics.
