2011 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Marcus Morris


Position: Power Forward

Size: 6-9, 235

School: Kansas, Junior


Strengths:
  • Physicality
  • Mid-range game
  • Use of jab step to create space for jumper when faced up to basket
  • Range out to the three-point line
  • Effective in pick-and-roll/pick-and-pop situations
  • Turnaround jumper over either shoulder
  • Good touch around the basket
  • Absorbing contact when finishing
  • Doesn't force shots for the most part; takes what is given to him
  • Power driver with quickness and strength to get to the rim
  • Pick-and-roll defender



    Weaknesses:
  • Not much of a threat taking defenders off the dribble in one-on-one situations
  • Ball handling
  • Won't be able to overpower power forwards at the next level
  • Explosiveness at the rim
  • Length
  • Free throw shooting

    Summary: Bill Self called Marcus Morris the best all-around player he has coached since he has been at Kansas. Morris has taken his game to the next level becoming the go-to player for the Jayhawks this season. He is a sure-fire first-round pick who could potentially work his way into the late lottery.

    Player Comparison: Ryan Gomes. Gomes was an inside/outside threat at Providence who made the transition to primarily the small forward position at the next level. Morris is of a similar mold as he plays the four or five at Kansas, but might end up being a three in the NBA. Both players have range on their jump shots but are also physical enough to make things happen in the post.
