2012 NBA Mock Draft: Rockets Select Tyler Zeller, Arnett Moultrie

The Houston Rockets are one of those fringe teams that just seem to be a player or two away from true contention. With the 14th and 16th picks in the NBA Draft, they may not find those pieces but they can grab some young talent to add to an already deep roster of solid players.

ESPN's Chad Ford has the Rockets using pick no. 14 on North Carolina's Tyler Zeller and pick no. 16 on Mississippi State's Arnett Moultrie.

Here is what Ford had to say about Zeller and Moultrie:

The Rockets' biggest need is in the middle, and Zeller should be a solid option. Scouts don't think Zeller is going to be an All-Star someday, but he's big, runs the floor very well and has a great touch around the basket.

Moultrie can stretch the floor and really rebound. With the Rockets in desperate need of size, pairing Moultrie with Zeller could give them a good mix of bigs.
