2011 NBA Mock Draft: Philadelphia 76ers Select Markieff Morris
Wouldn't it be fitting for the Morris twins to be picked back-to-back? Markieff had a few less points per game than his brother at 13, but also had an additional rebound per—in five less minutes.
It would seem Markieff has a better build for the NBA game at well, measuring in at 6'10", 245 pounds. Markieff doesn't have the same skills as Marcus on the offensive end and his hands are less assured leading to more turnovers, but the potential is still there.
Unlike most of the other big men in this draft, Markieff Morris is a better defensive player than an offensive player at this point in his career. He gets good position on rebounds and moves his feet to stay with all the best big men in college.
Morris has a jump shot, and in the NBA his offense will only improve. The 76ers already have Elton Brand, but it wouldn't hurt them to provide him with a breather every now and then. Morris could give them depth and more size to a lineup that already had some success making the playoffs this season.
