College: Notre Dame
Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted
Decent low post scorer
Adequate shooter for a big man, has stretch big potential
Adequate playmaker for his size
Very good rebounder
Needs to improve his outside shot
Can struggle against length and athleticism
Can struggle to guard quicker players
Only an average athlete at best
A bit undersized to play inside
John Mooney is a tough, physical big man that can score in the post, and he also can knock down mid-range jumpers to get scores from inside the arc. He also is a very good rebounder, and he will come away with many boards in games. On the downside, he doesn’t possess elite physical tools, and he can tend to struggle more when matched up against taller, more athletic opponents. Right now, he may be a borderline second round candidate for the 2020 NBA Draft.
