NBA Draft

Moses Moody

Scouting Report

Moody is a compelling prospect with a lot of upside after playing one season at Arkansas.
Moody, who turned 19 on May 31, averaged a team-best 16.8 points for a Razorbacks' squad that went 25-7 and reached the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament.
The 6-foot-6 small forward shot 35.8 percent from 3-point range and has plenty of time to improve his accuracy. He will help a team immensely if his role revolves around '3 and D.'
Moody can get to the hoop and when he gets fouled, he takes advantage as he made 81.2 percent of his free throws. His 151 made free throws last season are the most by a freshman in Arkansas history.
Moody averaged 5.8 rebounds during a season in which he was the SEC Freshman of the Year and he should be an asset on the boards for an NBA team.
He also plays solid defense and accumulated 33 steals and 21 blocks. He is best suited to guard small forwards or shooting guards.
Moody figures to be an immediate help on defense, even if his offense takes a little bit of time to develop.
Though he is shy on experience, Moody's skill-set is intriguing.
Positives: He'll enter the league as a 19-year-old and be viewed as a prospect that can be developed into a long-time starter. Moody might not be a high scorer right off the bat but he should instantly provide solid defensive minutes.
Negatives: He doesn't do a lot of scoring around the rim so that part of his game will need to improve over time. Improving his 3-point shooting early in his career will be key.
