Evan Mobley
20-Year-Old CenterC
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Easily the most-talented big man in the draft, Mobley will step in as a starter for the Cavs from Day 1. While Cleveland retained Jarrett Allen in free agency, the two bigs represent the frontcourt of the future, with Mobley's floor-spacing ability likely to land him at the power forward spot for the foreseeable future. Right now, Mobley is more comfortable in the mid-range than from three (30% 3PT as a freshman at USC last season), but he has a smooth jumper that should improve as he develops. Playing alongside Allen could sap some of Mobley's upside as a rebounder, but he's a much better passer than Allen, and his 2.9 blocks per game at USC suggest that it could be his most-valuable stat category when it comes to fantasy basketball. Cleveland's sign-and-trade deal for Lauri Markkanen will complicate Mobley's development. The Cavs gave up Larry Nance for Markkanen and signed him to a four year deal, so clearly Cleveland is committed to both Markkanen and Mobley. How the minutes are divided amongst those two and Kevin Love at the four will be very interesting. Love has stated he has no interest in a buy out. Like all rookies, expect Mobley to go through some ups and downs, but he'll likely come off the board in the later-middle-rounds of most fantasy drafts. Read Past Outlooks

College/International Summary

Mobley was a force for the Trojans on both ends of the floor in his first and only season on campus. Offensively, he led the Pac-12 with 540 points scored while shooting a league-high 57.8 percent from the field. He also led the conference in rebounding (8.7 rpg) while blocking 95 total shots -- good for second in the entire country. Mobley reached double figures in all but two conference games and collected 10 double-doubles in league play alone. Effectively, it comes as no surprise that Mobley was given Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year honors, in addition to getting a first-team all-conference nod. In the postseason, Mobley helped carry the Trojans to the Elite Eight in a run that included a double-double in an upset against Kansas.

Taken No. 3 by Cleveland

July 29, 2021
Mobley was selected by the Cavaliers with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft.
ANALYSIS
The No. 3 pick was coveted by many teams hoping to select the seven-footer, but Cleveland ultimately elected to keep it. Mobley is a near-perfect fit with the Cavs, as the former USC Trojan will bring versatility on the perimeter while also providing a heavy inside presence. The 7-foot, 215-pound big man has intriguing offensive upside alongside his promising ability to defend at the rim. Mobley will likely enter the season competing for minutes with restricted-free-agent-to-be Jarrett Allen. In 33 games with USC during the 2020-21 season, Mobley averaged 16.4 points, 8.7 rebounds and 2.4 assists while shooting 57.8 percent from the floor.
