Draft Notes

Arterio Morris is a supremely athletic big lead guard/combo guard. The former Texas player is now at Kansas and projects as a possible first rounder in a year or two.

Morris has the type of speed, burst and quick twitch athleticism that reminds a bit of Oladipo. He’s got a solid build with good strength and all the physical tools to be a problem at the next levels of play.

Morris isn’t a pure point guard but he can facilitate the offense. However, he’s at his best looking to score the ball and is a really tough cover, thanks to his 3 level scoring ability, lightening quick first step and ability to known down the outside shot. He’s a nightmare in transition and puts a lot of people on posters, with his sudden bursts to the rim.

A slick ball handler who can dance with the rock and shake defenders, Morris can get into the lane pretty much at will vs 1on1 defense.

Defensively he can cover either guard position. He’s an alert defender who understands team defense, jumps passing lanes well and has quick hands.

Morris is a competitor who plays with a good motor, fire and swagger.
