Drafted 14th overall in the 2021 NBA Draft by the Warriors, Mody Moses… Moosey Mody… Mody Moses… MOSES MOODY brings a lot of potential to the Golden State Warriors, much like his fellow draftee Jonathan Kuminga, who was drafted 7th overall by Golden State.

With Stephen Curry, Andrew Wiggins, Draymond Green, and other key talents, the two Warriors’ rookies may not see the court too often early on in their respective careers, but Moses Moody definitely has a chance to impress early on because of his shooting skills. 

Moody spent one year at Arkansas, where he averaged 16.8 points, 5.8 rebounds, and shot 35.8% from three-point range on over 150 attempts. The most impressive part of Moody’s freshman season though was the fact that he made at least one three-point shot in 27 of the 32 total games he played in with the Razorbacks, including postseason games.

Entering the NBA, Moses Moody is definitely one of the better perimeter shooting threats and as a result, he could see a handful of minutes early on in his career. One league executive spoke to NBA Analysis Network and talked about not only how the young rookie will have to adjust his game, but who he sees when he watches Moody play. 

“Moses Moody has a really stable relationship with everyone involved with the Golden State Warriors organization and he is a very respectful kid. It is definitely going to take him some time to learn and adapt to his new role of not always having the ball in his hands, but he is going to be a spot-shooter during his rookie season. Danny Green and Kyle Korver are the two names that come to mind when thinking about what kind of player Moody can be for Golden State.”

Danny Green and Kyle Korver are definitely not bad players to be compared to and the Warriors over the years did express interest in signing both Green and Korver. Now, they have a guy who they can not only mold into a player like these two veterans, but Moses Moody is only 19-years-old.
