Moses Moody Scouting Report

Scouting Reports

As the SEC Rookie of the year, Moses Moody had a stellar freshman season at Arkansas. On the year Moody averaged 16.8 PPG, 5.8 RPG, 1.6 APG, 1 SPG, 0.7 BPG, and 1.6 TOPG on shooting splits of 43/36/81. Below is his full scouting report:

Name: Moses Moody

Height/Weight: 6’6 / 211

Wingspan/ standing reach: 7’1 /8 8’9

Hand size: 10

Position: Wing

College: Arkansas

Tools: Length, shooting, defense


  • Projectable jump shot
  • Plays bigger than his size
  • Good rebounder
  • Good feel for the game
  • Long arms


  • Needs to reduce movement in jump shot base
  • Underwhelming first step
  • Lacks much separation ability off the dribble
  • Will need to continue adding strength
  • Mostly a below the rim finisher
  • Needs to improve left hand


Moses Moody is a two-way wing with high-end shooting upside and an ideal frame for a wing. Moody projects to be a 3&D prospect early on, with room to grow as a more complete offensive player. In order to take that next step in unlocking a more complete offensive package, Moody will need to get more comfortable and skilled at using his left hand, finishing at the rim, and learning more dribble moves in isolation. Right now, he has a slow first step with a basic handle, making it hard for him to get to the rim, with the exception of cuts and up-fakes out of spot-up attempts. Defensively, Moody’s length, recovery ability, and overall knowledge of the game help him remain a constant positive on the defensive end. Look for a team gearing up for a playoff run in 2022 to take Moody in the lottery.

Similar to: Mikal Bridges, Tony Snell, Justin Holiday

Projected draft range: 7-14

Expected role: 3&D starting wing

Unplayable if: Extremely improbable that he becomes unplayable, but if he had to be removed from a game, it would be because of an extremely poor shooting night. Moody’s floor is ridiculously high, shown by how hard it is to justify labelling him unplayable in any facet.

Exceeds expectations if: His ball handling comes along and he can separate well enough to hit shots reliably off the dribble. Additionally, in this scenario, his swing-skill of finishing at the rim goes in his favor.

Best Fits:

  • Golden State Warriors
  • Orlando Magic
  • New Orleans Pelicans
  • Sacramento Kings
  • Charlotte Hornets
