Georgetown’s Mohammed intrigues NBA scouts with mix of power, potential

Aminu Mohammed is one of the Big East’s top individual talents. He just so happens to play for the team at the bottom of the conference. No matter. Mohammed has put himself on track to be selected in the NBA draft if he decides to be a one-and-done. The versatile Mohammad appears in several mock drafts based on the combination of his current productivity at Georgetown and his high ceiling.

With two weeks until the NBA’s trade deadline on Feb. 10, the Wizards are far removed from the hot 10-3 start that caught the league by surprise
