NBA Draft Gurus Discuss Darius Morris


Aran Smith of and Kristofer Habbas of NBA Draft Insider both agreed to answer a couple quick questions about Darius Morris’s draft status. I’m far from an expert on the NBA, I probably watched four regular season games this year, so figured it would make a bit of sense to defer to those that follow the draft.

Where do you have Darius listed in your current projections? He’s currently projected as an early second round pick. In the 30-40 range.
NBA Draft Insider: Morris is listed 39th overall today and as the 7th best point guard prospect in the draft. He is 34th in our current Mock Draft (going to Washington).

Walton reported interest from Michigan, Michigan State, Connecticut, Purdue and Notre Dame and mentioned that he feels a Michigan offer is coming soon.

Video: Monte Morris, Denzel Watts and Leo Edwards at King James Classic

This footage isn’t the greatest because of the level of competition, a running clock and ample rest for the Team Detroit starters, but it’s still enough to get a first look at Monte Morris, Denzel Watts and Leo Edwards. For more footage of Monte Morris, make sure to check out the video we posted last week.

Scouting: 2011 King James Classic

2013 point guard Derrick Walton

I was only able to stay at the King James Classic through pool play, and was victim to a couple of no-shows, so I spent the majority of my time focusing on a couple 2013 prospects from the state of Michigan. Full scouting reports of that group, including Derrick Walton, Steve Haney Jr., Monte Morris, Denzel Watts and Leo Edwards, after the jump. We will also have some videos posted later today.
