Expert Analysis
"Moiso has all the skills to be a solid pro. He is a long and lean lefthander with good athleticism and a soft touch. He has range to at least 20 feet, and can run very well. Moiso is a very good shotblocker and can rebound the ball when he feels the spirit moving within him. His downside is simple -- Moiso does not yet understand how to dominate or control a college game, so how could he be expected to make the transition and be a great player on the NBA level? He can't be expected to do it, but he's in the draft, and the only real question for teams to ask is 'is there a better player available?'."-- ESPN's Jay Bilas
