Mojave King is an athletic, skilled swingman that can make shots in a variety of ways. He is a talented shooter that excels at knocking down shots off the catch and can also run off screens, and he also is an unselfish player that can set up scores for his teammates. He will need to improve his defense, and he may need to show that he can effectively run the point at higher levels.
He didn’t play much in the NBL during the 2020-21 season in Australia, and he struggled to shoot or play well in limited playing time. After struggling to get consistent playing time in the NBL, King put up solid numbers last year in the New Zealand NBL. Recently, King decided to sign with the G-League Ignite to play in the NBA G-League. Currently, he projects to be a second round prospect in the 2023 draft.
