Draft Notes

Isaiah Mobley has been joined by his brother Evan at USC where the two will play side by side again, at least for a year, before declaring for the NBA draft. Isaiah is not as elite as his brother but he’s still on the NBA radar and has all the pieces in place to have a productive second season for the Trojans.

He’s a nimble 6-10 forward who can do a little bit of everything on the court. He’s a fluid and shows great body control and agility in a big lanky frame. Although he’s not the most explosive vertical leaper he does have some quick twitch and burst.

Mobley can score in the paint, although this won’t be his primary role at the next level. He’s got a face up game and can hit shots off the dribble, hit the turnaround jumper and can pull up from 18 feet and beyond. Perfecting the corner 3 and becoming and overall great 3pt shooter will his keys to success at the next level.

He’s a natural talent who makes it look easy.

Isaiah has a good frame but lacks strength and gets moved around too easily. He’s not an intimidator in the paint or a standout defender. He needs to get a lot stronger for the next level.
