I do like Moody in real life even if it's more of an 8-12 range pick. He just needs to stick to what he's good at. I know you guys probably watched more games than me but every time I saw him, he's just trying to do more than he's comfortable with since the team depends on him for points. He has the skills to be a 3&D Mikal Bridges type off the bat with some good coaching in his ear. Needs to reign it in and let others create his shot for him.I cannot stand Moses Moody as lottery option maybe 12 or later on potential but he is too raw to be a top 10 pick in this draft. In last years a year earlier in the rebuild having not drafted Okoro maybe. Too many better options imo
I more so picked him based on my playing style in the video game over who I'd want real-life Koby to pull the trigger on. I'm thinking Moody's spot-up shooting and improved size/defense make more sense in the starting lineup between Garland and Okoro. Sexton becomes the Lou Will sparkplug playing 30 mins a game off the bench. It's a lot to ask of Garland to create for Moody and Okoro, but in 2k it will work well. At least one of them is a decent spot-up shooter.
If I took Barnes, we've got Love/Nance/Prince and Barnes all needing minutes at the 4. I suppose I could deal Love but can't bring myself to do it since no team would want him in real life. So a little short-term bias as well due to the fact I doubt I play out 4 seasons to watch Scottie learn to shoot it.
