EvenMoney’s NBA Draft 2011 – Top 10 Power Forwards, #5

#5 – Markieff Morris

At this point in the rankings for PFs, it becomes more a matter of preference and where each player distinguishes himself. For Markieff Morris, that comes on both defense, where he gives you a bit of everything: rebounding, steals and blocks. He then tops it off, with decent long range shooting – 42% from three-point land.

Markieff’s skill-set and average college production translates into a cog in a well-oiled machine. He will do well if drafted later in the first round and on a veteran club looking for player ready to contribute.

Still not convinced? Ponder the stats below and press play!

Markieff Morris


 Out of 138 players:
·        Markieff Morris would be a first round pick in only 1 of the 4 metrics, partly because he was not a focal point offensively and had enough talent around him to carry the load.
·        He is a very safe pick in the late teens / early 20’s.
·        Considered as a whole (BPM), as well as for each specialty (PCM for Production; DIR for Defense; and TPA (Talent/Skill-set).
