Cavs draft C Evan Mobley
The Cavs capped off a wild day by drafting Evan Mobley, which sure, wasn’t a surprise, but was still a wild way to end the day regardless. You could easily argue that the Cesar Hernandez trade was the least shocking or least impactful thing about today but no one expected the drafting of Evan Mobley to have such competition.
Terry Francona stepping down for the year, and the Cavs fleecing the Timberwolves for Ricky Rubio? That’s some real challenge for “Biggest News Story of the Day”.
The Cavs did get a good one in Mobley, that’s for sure. There was plenty of debate over who should’ve gone in 2020, with many not being happy with the Isaac Okoro pick, but that isn’t the case in 2021.
Sure, there are some disappointed that the Cavs went with Mobley, and while guys like Jalen Suggs and Josh Giddey were interesting prospects, not many were disappointed in the selection. Many even claim that Mobley is a “generational talent”, though he still has a lot of work to do offensively before he can really carry that mantra.
The Cavs season is setting itself up nicely and things may finally come together for Cleveland. The team needs to figure out what they want to do with Collin Sexton, however, and decide if Jarrett Allen is worth bringing back now that they have Mobley; who some claim is as good as Allen is currently.
A wild accusation for sure, but one that may be accurate.
