Scouting Report

OVERVIEW
Don't look at his stats when you try to evaluate if Roby can cash NBA paychecks. Instead, watch him play defense and realize one thing: This is a 6-8, 230-pound guy who can play all five positions defensively, and he has a 7-3 wingspan. There's a chance he never gets a play run for him in an NBA game, but there's also a chance he hangs around this league for a while.
During the NBA Draft Combine in Chicago, Roby brought an infectious energy, awareness and instincts to the court.
As a junior at Nebraska, Roby averaged 11.8 points and 6.9 rebounds per game, hitting 45.4 percent of his field goals and making 33.3 percent from the arc. The most important thing was he also blocked 1.9 shots per game and chipped in 1.3 steals. While the Cornhuskers underperformed and got coach Tim Miles fired, Roby made a good impression on scouts.
ANALYSIS
Blocking shots and jumping into passing lanes to steal the ball aren't the end of Roby's defensive repertoire. He stands out in his ability to hedge off pick and rolls, and switch defenders in a manner that confirms him as a player who can guard multiple positions in the NBA. His rebound rate is also pretty good, especially since he doesn't finish a lot of possessions under the bucket.
One thing Roby won't ever be known for is his offense. While he can hit shots and is capable of being a glue guy - making good passes, screening and using his end-to-end speed to push the transition game - it's unlikely he'll ever score more than what he did at Nebraska in 2018-19.
