2011 NBA Draft: Morris Twins Go Back-to-Back at Nos. 13 and 14 Overall
We’ll start with Markieff Morris who was selected by the Phoenix Suns at No. 13.
It was a solid pick as a team in the desperate need of rebounding and defense.
Markieff brings both and just that little bit of swagger that lacks in the Phoenix frontcourt.
You would think that Vince Carter would still possess it (even for offense), but times are changing in Arizona.
Even the Arizona Cardinals football team is becoming defensive oriented after drafting cornerback Patrick Peterson from LSU in late-April.
But I digress.
Markieff also adds relevant depth along with Hakim Warrick at power forward, so you can expect Channing Frye to receive more time at center.
Switching gears to brother Marcus, who was selected at No. 14 overall by the Houston Rockets.
It was an interesting selection as they already have Terrence Williams and Chase Budinger, but nonetheless, Marcus will be sufficient.
That said, he’ll most likely add some needed depth behind Luis Scola at power forward.
Chances are he bounces back and forth because neither Williams or Budinger are complete small forwards, while Marcus has that potential.
