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.

Blake, however, believes Jones will be long gone before the Mavs make their first selection. Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Big East Rookie of the Year Moe Harkless is heading to the NBA after just one season at St. John's, a source with knowledge of the situation confirmed last night.
