STAR UNDERDOG

NBA ROLE: SCORING, HYBRID FORWARD

 

Marcus, the younger (Morris Twin), is a versatile, ‘matchup problem’ forward; unbeknownst to some, Marcus is a very talented faceup threat – features a wide array of jabbers, mid-post faders, turnarounds, step backs and is quick enough to get by you, strong enough to finish through you; uses his strength & size to an advantage – loves setting up near the elbow or lower block before punishing smaller defenders in the lane; learning how to transfer his energy on defense, has gotten better 1v1; aggressive from downtown (makes difficult, leaning looks on the regular), shot at a 37% clip from outside in '17-'18; can fall in love with deep jumpers; needs to work on post-up playmaking; signed w/ Knicks: consistent offensive threat for Coach Fizdale
