2012 NBA Mock Draft: Miami Heat Could Select Tyshawn Taylor

Thomas Robinson isn't the only Kansas Jayhawks player who will hear his name called the night of the 2012 NBA Draft. Tyshawn Taylor is also going to receive his share of the credit for the Jayhawks run to the NCAA title game, and the Miami Heat may enjoy his talents at the next level, according to the latest mock draft from Yahoo! Sports' Jonathan Givony.

He writes, "While Mario Chalmers had a solid year and is locked in long-term, Miami still doesn't have great backcourt depth behind him and Dwayne Wade. Mike Miller perpetually struggles with injuries and rookie Norris Cole regressed later in the season. Tyshawn Taylor has the size to defend either guard position and should be able to space the floor with his 3-point range."

The Heat could certainly use a lot of depth since they've been exposed at multiple points throughout not only this season but in the playoffs as well. The core is as talented as any in NBA history but adding a guard like Taylor would definitely bolster a position of need.
