"But Mejri has some explosion and mobility going to the rim and this could translate on any given play. His movement seems pretty good and his mobility is quite intriguing for a player who stands over seven-feet tall. If Mejri, in fact, makes the Dallas Mavericks roster, shot blocking would be an area where he could possibly make his biggest impact."
