While Wes Unseld Jr. and Washington could be in for a transformative offseason, the backcourt of Russell Westbrook and Bradley Beal remains intact. As long as they have those two, their lack of interior depth, especially after the Thomas Bryant injury, needs to be addressed by adding someone like Jackson.
Jackson averaged five blocks per 40 minutes, meaning that he has confirmed beyond a shadow of a doubt he is a premium specimen at the center position. He’s a non-factor outside of the paint, but he’ll finally give the Wizards a rebounder and rim protector for their quest to return to the postseason.
Moody is the truest example of a “3-and-D” player this class has to offer, as his ability to uncork a barrage of shots from beyond the arc is paired with the athletic ability to push the tempo and hit pull-up shots in transition. He’ll have plenty of wide-open looks as a tertiary gunner next year.
The Thunder may not give Moody a starting role right away, and they might not be ready to compete just yet, but Moody has All-Star potential thanks to his offensive game, and he could be the perfect third star for this team if they get him to add some weight. Oklahoma City is building a very nice future, and Moody will be a major part of it.
