2012 NBA Mock Draft: SB Nation's Latest Mock Has Harrison Barnes Going To Cleveland

It's getting to the point now where you can essentially, when predicting mock draft selections for the Cleveland Cavaliers' fourth overall selection, just put the names Bradley Beal and Harrison Barnes into a hat and pick one. In fact, go do that now, you'll have a 50 percent chance of getting it right when you open any random mock draft.

So, no guesses who Tom Ziller's latest 2012 NBA Mock Draft has going to the Cavs at fourth overall. If you picked Harrison Barnes out of the hat, you've got it absolutely right:

According to Sacramento-based James Ham, Barnes was supposed to work out for the Kings on Friday. He canceled. He visited the Cavaliers on Saturday. HMM. My guess is that the Cavaliers told Barnes' camp that they'd take him if he was on the board.

Once again, this is likely to change as seemingly every day, a new report comes out saying that the Cavs are leaning one way or the other in here. It's going to be great when they take Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and troll us all on draft day, eh?
