Some team sources said if the Warriors select Drummond, he almost certainly will be used in a trade. Houston reportedly seeks Drummond as its project center, and the Rockets hold pick Nos. 12, 16 and 18. The Warriors would consider trading No. 7 for two of the Rockets' picks and would love to leave the first round after selecting North Carolina center Tyler Zeller and St. John's forward Moe Harkless.

Sources confirmed an ESPN.com report from Sunday night that Sacramento was among the teams talking with the Rockets, and it made perfect sense then that the Kings were suddenly bringing in a number of prospects expected to be taken later than their fifth pick. St. John's small forward Moe Harkless is among them, and the way in which he agreed to a Monday workout was revealing. Harkless worked out for Golden State (No. 7) on Sunday, and was then asked by the Kings to come by on Monday before leaving the region. The unique part, I was told, was that the workout was enough of an organizational priority that at least one member of the Maloof family that owns the team was among those team representatives doing the asking.

If they keep the pick, they really need help at center, point guard and small forward. Although Rivers doesn't fill any of those positions, I'm told the Hornets have been enamored with him. Tyler Zeller, Jeremy Lamb and Moe Harkless are other possibilities here. ESPN.com

One general manager, asked which player not getting a lot of attention and possibly destined for the second half of the first round, did not hesitate with an answer. "Moe Harkless." "Exactly who I was going to say," another GM said in a separate conversation, before adding, "Don't be surprised if he ends up in the lottery, though." NBA.com

Source says St. John's small forward Moe Harkless will work out in Sacramento (No. 5) on Monday after working out for Golden State (No. 7) today. The session wasn't initially scheduled, but the Kings are showing serious interest. Have to wonder if it's a sign that they're thinking about moving back to get a player like him. The Kings played former rookie of the year Tyreke Evans at the small forward spot last season, but he was not happy with the move and certainly would rather play in the backcourt as he heads into a contract year.

Ryan Blake, the senior director of NBA scouting operations, said five players whom the Mavs could consider at No. 17 include Washington shooting guard Terrence Ross, Mississippi State power forward Arnett Moultrie, St. John's small forward Moe Harkless, Illinois center Meyers Leonard and North Carolina point guard Kendall Marshall. Blake, however, believes Jones will be long gone before the Mavs make their first selection. Fort Worth Star-Telegram

St. John's Moe Harkless is the most intriguing prospect among the five-player group working out for the Warriors on Sunday. There was some talk about the group including Washington's Terrence Ross, but he wasn't on the list issued by the team. The other four are Kent Bazemore (ODU), Matt Gatens (Iowa), Augustus Gilchrist (S. Florida) and Drew Viney (LMU). Sulia

Dunlap spent part of this past season filling in as St. John’s head coach when Steve Lavin underwent treatment for prostate cancer. Harkless said Dunlap handled the duty seamlessly. “He’s one of the best basketball minds I know,” Harkless said. “He really knows the game well, and he’s really smart and really intense.” Oregonian
