What They’re Saying
Versatile two-way big with a clear path to being an elite defender and the long-term potential to be a go-to scorer.
Mobley is impressively mobile, athletic and coordinated for a 7-footer. His quick footwork makes him perfect for the defenses in today’s NBA, more than capable of switching pick-and-rolls on the perimeter, keeping faster guards in front of him. His 7-foot-4 wingspan attributes to him being the best shot blocker in college basketball last season, as his 2.9 blocks per game led the Pac-12 and his 95 total blocks were second-most in the entire NCAA.
But it’s more than just his physical gifts that make him a great rim protector; Mobley’s instincts and timing are off the charts, excelling as a help defender or last line of protection at the basket. His versatility and feel for the game are all any NBA team could ask for in a big man.
Offensively, he’s a scoring threat from anywhere inside the arc and thrives as a screener in pick-and-rolls, giving opposing defenses plenty to worry about with his plethora of ways he can beat you.
