More on the Draft

  • The Cavaliers appear to favor Mobley if he is still available at No. 3, per Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com. They seem believe he can fit in next to center Jarrett Allen, as Mobley is expected to be able to play both in the pivot and at power forward, sort of like a newer version of Chris Bosh.
  • Mike Schmitz of ESPN wrote that Florida State forward Scottie Barnes could be climbing the charts and is a player to watch for the Raptors with the No. 4 overall pick. Barnes could be jumping ahead of the likes of Suggs and Kuminga.
  • In case you missed it, Cunningham has already met with the Pistons, owner of the No. 1 overall pick. It’s been reported that the Pistons are the only team with which he will meet.
