St. John's forward Moe Harkless is working out at the IMG Basketball Academy ahead of the 2012 NBA Draft.

Harkless spoke with HoopsWorld about what he's working on, and what misconceptions teams have about his game.

"I've been working on my body, getting my ball-handling a lot tigheer, and getting a lot of reps as far as shooting," Harkless told HoopsWorld. "A lot of people think I can't really shoot the ball . . . I can shoot the ball really well, and I can dribble the ball better than people expect."

Harkless, who declared for the draft after one year at St. John's, also spoke a lot about what he feels he brings to the table: versatility.

"I'm trying to show [teams] how versatile I am," Harkless said. "I can do pretty much anything out there on the floor. I can defend multiple positions and play multiple positions, and I think once people see that, they'll be real interested."

As a freshman, Harkless averaged 15.3 points and 8.6 rebounds per game.
