Evan Mobley Rumors

Q) The Cavs appear likely to land another top 5 pick in this summer’s draft. If you’re Cleveland, which prospects fit best with their current roster? A) Matt Babcock: “Our big board at basketballnews.com has our top 5 players being Cade Cunningham, Evan Mobley, Jalen Suggs, Jalen Green, and Jonathan Kuminga. Jalen Suggs is probably the only player that I see as a guy that wouldn’t be a great fit, as he’s an on ball, true point guard. The other players would all fit in my mind. However, Cade Cunningham and Evan Mobley would absolutely be at the top of my wish list if I were the Cavs.”
And yet still, despite a freshman season that has gone as well as nearly any other in the last decade of college basketball, it’s not uncommon to hear from NBA evaluators who think he is capable of more. “He’s more passive than I like from a top-three pick,” one assistant general manager whose team will not have a chance at securing Mobley on draft night told The Athletic. “He’s extraordinarily gifted. He’s a top-three pick because of those gifts. There’s just something there where I feel like he can take over every game at the college level, and he doesn’t.”
