I have no problem with Mobley playing some time at the 3. Don’t really care that he’d be a defensive sieve there. I’d play him there just so he doesn’t get constantly leaned on and beat up and injured.
I'm just not convinced there even was a Durant comment to temper. If there's anything to temper it's jbk1234's thought that Mobley is best used as a back to the basket player. IMO, we should protect Evan physically and find out what the upper-limits are of his skill level are by trying him in different roles. Just because some people say he's a C doesn't mean he is a C. He wasn't even used as a C at USC, and I wouldn't let how he was used there limit how we try to develop him.
But nobody has suggested starting Mobley day 1 at a position he's never played ...
