First: Isaiah Mobley
Mobley has the best chance to get a standard contract out of anyone in this group of two-way players. He’s a capable floor spacer as a power forward, and even though he isn’t as good of a defender as his brother, Evan, he’s still a solid defensive big man.
The 6-foot-8 Isaiah Mobley is still really talented.
He attempted 3.9 free throws per game, and shot 73.0 percent from the line, in the G League last season. His 3.8 assists per game was also promising, showing that he’s capable of being a quality passing big man.
The 35.3 percent from beyond the arc isn’t awful, but it’s more than respectable for a big man of his ilk. His three-point shot should be even better this season, and that could be a reason why he could get more minutes for the Cavaliers.
His 1.1 blocks was solid, too, and with Mobley’s 7-foot-3 wingspan and timing, it wouldn’t seem unreasonable for him to potentially get some backup 5 minutes with the Cavaliers, or at least splitting some time at the 4 and 5.
All in all, these two-way players were top-notch signings, given the context of what Cleveland is getting from those guys, or could be. All of them should get some run in the NBA, as well as playing a lot in the G League.
It wouldn’t be suprising if any three of these guys will get a standard contract, depending if they play really well. As of now, we just get to watch the Las Vegas Summer League and enjoy the games to see if the Cavs can keep their winning ways going, after their 101-97 victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Friday.
