NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski recently said that he believes the Cleveland Cavaliers may be focussing on University of Southern California big man Evan Mobley with the No. 3 pick in the 2021 NBA Draft.

“I think right now, there’s a sense of Jalen Green at No. 2 to Houston, Evan Mobley of USC, their big man to the Cavs at 3,” said Wojnarowski on a recent episode of his podcast, The Woj Pod.

During the 2020-21 season at USC, Mobley averaged 16.4 points, 8.7 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 2.9 blocks per game while shooting 57.8 percent from the field. He took home a handful of awards as one of the best players in the nation.

Mobley is considered one of the top prospects in the upcoming draft, and there is a very real chance that he will be available when the Cavaliers are on the clock with the third pick. There has been a lot of speculation about the direction that Cleveland will go with its selection, but all things considered, the 20-year-old would be a great addition.

It has been rumored that the Cavaliers like the idea of pairing Mobley next to fellow big man Jarrett Allen, who is set to become a restricted free agent this offseason. A combination of those two players could make for a lethal frontcourt, and it could become the identity of this Cavs team.

With the future of many of Cleveland’s stars in question, the draft will be a pivotal event in determining the direction of the organization.
