Here’s Marcus Morris Sr.’s response to being asked what skill sets Cleveland Cavaliers big man Evan Mobley has that can take him to the next level following an impressive Eastern Conference Semifinals vs. the Boston Celtics (averaged 21.4 PPG/9.4 RPG/3.2 APG/1.0 BPG/0.8 SPG/62.7% FG/28.6% 3-PT/73.3% FT in the series loss).

(via Cleveland Cavaliers):

“His versatility. Being able to defend really all five positions, being able to score it in the mid-post, on the post, and be able to stretch the defense. I think obviously watching him play the 5… I really like him at the 5. I think that it showed his entire game being able to get it off the glass, push it, set the pick-and-roll, ISO from the top. I think he’s really grown and it was a great opportunity. Obviously we don’t want injuries, but as a player for him… J.A. [Jarrett Allen] going down and being able to step into a bigger role and be able to really show everything he can do.”
