Morris isn’t a deadeye shooter by any means, but he can score in bunches, and stretches the floor pretty well for a 6’10” forward.

Morris has a solid shooting stroke, and has effectively knocked down shots since back in his days as a Kansas Jayhawk. A 40.4 percent three-point shooter in college, the 25-year-old has made shots from behind the arc at a 32.8 percent clip since coming to the NBA.

That’s not elite by any means, but Morris’ ability to score from across the floor to accompany that makes him not only an intriguing prospect, but a valuable NBA asset for any team.

Last season in Phoenix (not even his best shooting season), Morris shot 61 percent from within three feet, 43.6 percent from 3-10 feet, 50.2 percent from 10-16 feet, and 39.7 percent from 16 feet to the three-point line. That accounted for an impressive scoring average of 15.3 points per game.
