- Drafting Evan Mobley
Due to their terrible performance in the last season, the Cleveland Cavaliers got a chance to have a good shot at the NBA Lottery, which determines the draft order of the teams in the NBA Draft.
Cavs got the 3rd overall pick in this year’s draft and it was the best thing that could have happened to them as they went on to draft Evan Mobley from USC who has been instrumental to their success story this season.
His debut in the league demonstrated that he was tailor-made for this stage, which is why he is the front-runner to win this season’s rookie of the year award, ahead of players such as Cade Cunningham and Scottie Barnes. Evan Mobley has transformed the defense of the Cleveland Cavaliers to the next level and his pairing with Jarrett Allen was really crucial for their success this season. Often regarded as ‘The Twin Towers’, Mobley and Allen are very important for the Cavs going forward into the future.
