As a life-long Wolverines fan I was greatly saddened to hear that Darius Morris had officially decided to leave school and enter the NBA draft. The Maize and Blue could have really been a contender if he stayed. My one consolation is that the Wolves should be in an ideal position to draft him.
Don't believe the reports about how this guy may go undrafted or late in the second round. 20 year old 6'4" PGs who are assist machines don't slide that far. Seriously, this guy is perfect to play behind Rubio. He plays under control, sees the floor extremely well, scores well from inside, and always looks to make a pass first. The only knocks against him are his speed, which is adequate but not John Wall, and his jump shot. I'm not too worried about the jump shot because he seems to have good enough technique that this will improve, but more importantly he knows when to shoot it. His 3-ball range should come with time.
He has huge upside and was a a great leader for the Wolverines this year. If we can sign Rubio, draft and trade Irving for an all star SG, and draft Morris as a back up, our guard play should be immensely improved.
