This guy been brought up? Very iHart lite in a 4's body.

Jonathan Mogbo (Power forward, San Francisco)

Draft night age: 22.6
Height: 6 ft 7 in
Wingspan: 7 ft 2 in
Weight: 220 lbs

Prez’s Sales Pitch: Mogbo is an athletic marvel with an NBA body that only a few years ago was sub-6 feet. In college he was a point-center and dunk machine; in the NBA he’ll likely play the 4 and rely on his guard-like movement and face-up handle and explosion. Though he didn’t shoot jumpers, all he has to do is get proficient from the corner and you’ve got a super-charged, super-smart big wing connector. He understands the game, and learning to chuck and defend perimeter players is easy enough in the G-League — the payoff would be well worth it.

Questions about their projection: Mogbo is too small to play the 5 in the NBA — full stop. His projection requires two pretty gigantic “ifs”: if he goes from never shooting to shooting well, and if he can be a strong defender at the 4. Though he played there some in college, the NBA is a whole new ballgame: one night you’re the china shop to Julius Randle’s bull in the paint, the next you’re trying to catch Paul George or keep him in front of you on the perimeter.

Important Stats:

14/10/4/1.6/0.8

11.1 BPM. A great number.

25 AST%. Insanely high for a big man.

14.5%/29.3% OREB%/DREB%. Elite numbers.

3.2 steal rate (STL%)

3.5 BLK%

That's pretty much what Precious is, no?

I think Precious is bigger and far less skilled with the ball. This guy gives Jae Crowder vibes.

Is Precious a point-center? I think that’s the separator.

Interesting dude

These mid major players are interesting. "Mogbo" name alone is fun!
Not going to break many school records when Bill Cartwright and Bill Russell are legacy!

If he’s there he has to be considered at 24/25 because he already looks the part of an nba role player. The shooting, off-ball movement and passing are impressive. He probably isn’t a good defender but no reason he can’t hold up good enough. Thibs would like his quick decision making and from what i understand he is very competitive.

Sam Vecenie (The Athletic) was on KFS and said something to the effect that he asked a good # of Big East players/coaches who was best player in conference and that the name with the most responses was this guy Scheierman.

Pretty solid given Kolek and Carter in Big East as well.

If Knicks could move up for Carter and also add Scheierman --- I'd be down for that.
