    He's the CLEAR #2 pick. 19 yrs old ..a buzzer beater from leading USC to the Final. Let him grow and develop....turn into a man.
    Evan has game changing elite defense ...on the interior, and can switch on the perimeter. I know folks are worried about his offense, but he'll be working with Dream and CD. Dream's never had a pupil so closely in tune with his own strengths....and, this level of talent.
    This is a home run for our franchise.

    Carroll Dawson is 84, he is not working out players this year. Maybe next year.

    I'm aware that CD's 84, but he has so much knowledge to impart. He will play SOME role in this kid's development.

    Trade Wood for another top pick this year if you draft Mobley. No need to draw out the rebuild with redundant players.

    Honestly though… I like guys like this. Because he’s not lying or boosting himself. He’s genuinely being true about his skill set lol.

    Has Dream helped any of his students improve a lot? Serious question.

    Lmao. Mobley was also, what, 18 in that video?

    Mobley may very well be the second best prospect in the class and with good reason. The name of the game is drafting the best player available at the 2 slot, especially with where our organization is. I would hate to pick someone else out of fit. Take the best prospect and move on. Let Mobley...get this...mature into his game. Championship isn’t build overnight or in a year. We have our pick next year too. I would love to add Mobley even if he makes it tangentially awkward with Wood. Hell, the two may play great off each other. Give the kid time to develop, he could be a great one.
