The first round of the 2021 NBA Draft kicks off tonight July 29 at 8:00 pm ET, and soon we will find out where USC center Evan Mobley will be playing basketball next season.
While previous reports stated that the Detroit Pistons, who have the No. 1 overall pick were not fully committed to Oklahoma State's Cade Cunningham, a recent report by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski revealed that their feelings have changed.
In a series of tweets Wojnarowski writes:
Trade offers to move up the board -- including to No. 1 -- continue to come, so there's always the possibility that a proposal could blow the Pistons away. But if they're taking the pick for themselves at No. 1 tonight, they're taking Cade Cunningham, sources tell ESPN.
Wojnarowski believes Mobley could have a solid shot at landing as the No. 3 overall pick, which would send him to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Mobley was voted Pac-12 Player of the Year last season after averaging 16.4 points, 8.7 rebounds, 2.9 blocks and 2.4 assists in 33 games played.
