2011 NBA Mock Draft: Rockets Take Tobias Harris In Latest SB Nation Mock

Continuing SB Nation's trend of thinking that small forward is a worthy weakness worth shoring up, the Rockets use their No. 14 overall pick on Tennessee's Tobias Harris in SB Nation's latest mock draft. Harris averaged 15.3 points and 7.3 rebounds for the the Volunteers last season, and is projected almost universally as a mid-first round selection. Here's what SB Nation had to say about him:

14. Houston Rockets: Tobias Harris, F, Tennessee

Chad Ford recently gave Harris a bar of gold we like to call the "Shane Battier comparison." It's maybe the best draft boost a player can get these days. Why? Everyone wants a Battier, yet no one knows where to find one. Brains, capacity for knowledge and composure are the most difficult things to measure when a prospect is posting up a chair. It's only a matter of time until GMs start breaking out Risk! during player workouts.

Well that's just silly. Everyone knows all you need to acquire Shane Battier is a future protected first round pick and Hasheem Thabeet.
