Moody's fit on the San Antonio Spurs

Moses Moody projects to be a solid bench piece in year one -- someone who will offer defensive versatility and 3-point shooting. He might be best taking advantage of mismatches at the four while defending modern forwards at either position.

He's a player who could play in Austin to start the year, but by mid-season, I'd fully expect him to be a 15 minute-per-night player at minimum.

The key to Moody's upside will be the development of his game off the dribble. If he can create offense for himself and others, he has a chance to become one of the better two-way players in the game. You can't say he'll be an All-NBA talent, but he has a strong foundation for success.

tIn the starting lineup, he projects play either there or four alongside Derrick White and Dejounte Murray. Moody would instantly become the second-best shooter in their starting lineup, should San Antonio slide Devin Vassell to the three, Moody could also take over responsibilities of being the team's starting power forward in due time.

With the selection of Moses Moody, the Spurs would be receiving an immediate threat from deep and a versatile, long defender who can hound the opposition into bad shots and turnovers. By year three or year four, they could be looking at a six or seven-year starter at whichever position they decide to play him.
