14. Houston Rockets
Markieff Morris won’t let his brother Marcus be the only Morris in the 2011 NBA Draft, as Markieff is proving that while he may not have the same offensive talent as his brother, he’s got some talents of his own.
None of these is more prominent than the effect he has on the defensive end of the court.
If Marcus has the offensive talent, then Markieff is geared more towards the defensive end.
Athletic and on the longer side, Markieff is a great defender and has the ability to block shots and crash the boards. His offensive game is catching up to his brothers, but might not be there for a while.
He can however, finish well around the rim as well as defend in the paint.
The Rockets definitely miss Yao Ming’s presence under the rim, but drafting Markieff Morris can give them a level of defensive toughness around the basket that they don’t have with someone like Brad Miller.
