Monte Morris

A senior out of Iowa State, Monte Morris arrived in Chicago with a lot of the same labels attached to Jawun Evans. As one of the shortest players in the class, and lacking the added wingspan that Evans possesses, for many the questions were going to focus on what this near 22-year-old could offer as a pro.

Morris’ performance at the Combine could go toward simplifying that discussion significantly, though. A reliable and efficient distributor in college, it was the Michigan native’s shooting that shone the most in recent days.

Morris showed himself to be incredibly comfortable shooting off the dribble, and comfortably racked up the best percentages among the players who competed in those drills.

Having interviewed with at least seven teams, Morris noted how his conversations with multiple teams, including the Bucks, tended to stay away from specific basketball talk and instead focused on who he is as a person.

"“Just the background I come from, my mom and things like that,” Morris said regarding the questions the Bucks asked. “What did I do growing up, what do I do for hobbies; they know my basketball and my play. They asked me some questions about me and my teammates and what they would say about me and things like that.”"
