2. Passing

Mobley also shows promise in his passing ability. As an NBA center, the most frequent passes that one is going to be asked to make are kick out passes to the perimeter when the defense collapses.

Mobley has exhibited that he is able to these passes on a consistent basis. More exciting though, is his ability to find cutters in the post.

For a Houston Rockets team specifically, Mobley’s passing would be a tremendous boost, as coach Stephen Silas emphasizes ball movement in his offensive philosophy, which is much different from his predecessor Mike D’Antoni.  The Rockets rank third in 3-point attempts, and having a skilled passing big man could do wonders for the Rockets’ long-range shooting efficiency, as he could find the open shooter when he’s in the post.

Whether they be coming from the perimeter, or are fellow big men diving to the rim, Mobley has the vision and timing to make easy shots for his teammates. At the next level, Mobley’s passing ability will be an asset to any team.
