Probably because he's

Probably because he's ball-dominant and he can't shoot. But at the same time he's not Tyreke Evans so that won't fly. Morris is a work in progress as a player who has to make some adjustments to his game, and his stock is where it was when he declared for the draft.

Dont put to much into the

Dont put to much into the mock draft. Most of the teams are putting out lies so they can get the guy they want. You will find that after the first couple of picks the mok drafts picks will be wrong. Look at past mock drafts before the draft then look what actually happened. I think alot of people think what they see in the mock drafts is what's gonna happen

I'm not a fan of Morris. I've seen limited footage of him, but he looks really slow. He won't be able to score and dish like his did at Michigan, and no NBA team will allow him to be as ball-dominant as he was in college.

He didn't have impressive tools for workout situation.

His strenght is his passing, but without playing in games, it's probably tough for him to show his strength during workouts.

He can't shoot. He should of

He can't shoot. He should of stayed in college. I'm a Michigan fan (please don't give me negatives for that) watched majority of thier games, his points came off layoffs and broken plays. He has upsize but should of stayed in college.

Sounds like Andre Miller in college and about 70percent of college point guards year in and year out

Simple

He isn't that good. He wasn't even the PG with the brightest future on his college team.

He's good enough to get

He's good enough to get drafted into the NBA so thats pretty good. Plus he hasn't dropped( stop treating these mock drafts liek it is the actual draft, stop being brainwashed)

He's a much less talented

He's a much less talented Andre Miller/Marcus Williams type and will definitely struggle with the overall speed and overall talent level in the nba. Probably shoulda stayed in school at least another year, but I'm still not sure about him as a prospect in general. Watched some of his games again recently and he was just really underwhelming. Just really didn't stand out and wow me as a surefire nba prospect.
