Yet another point guard possibility...


With the liklihood of not drafting Irving ;-( and the real possibility of Rubio not coming over this year, I for one do not wan the wolves to go into next season with a point guard sitatuation similar to what we had this year.  Focusing on the draft, we've talked about the options.  Knight, Walker, Fredette, etc.  Another possibility we need to consider is Darius Morris (http://www.nbadraft.net/darius-morris-pure-point-guard).  He is a guy that wouldn't be a reach at #20.  He certainly has the size, ball handling, IQ, and intangibles to be a fine PG in the league.  He's not like any other point guard in the draft that is being considered in round 1.  All of the others seem to be scorers first or maybe combo PG's (with the exception of Irving who is the complete package IMO).  The one thing that Morris has is guile.  The dude's hoops IQ is off the charts.  He reminds me of Andre Miller in that respect.  Read the article if you haven't yet.  I have seen him play quite a bit, so I like what I see and I can see the potential that people talk about. 

Again, I would say this would be plan C or D for the point guard position, but you have to be ready for plans C through Z, which I don't think Kahn has ever planned for.  If all other possibilities fall through, and we draft at 3 or 4, we could afford to draft BPA available and not have to worry about reaching, and then nab Morris at 20.  You could take a Kanter, Williams, Biyombo, Burks with the top pick and then nab Morris later on.  It seems like the point guards drafted in the first round the last few years have been pretty successful, and the level of success hasn't necessarily been directly correlated to the exact position they've been drafted at.  In other words, we've seen PG's drafted in the teens and 20's turn out to be just as good if not better than those drafted sooner.  Maybe Morris could follow suit.  Thoughts?
