NBA Comparison: Monte Morris

Strengths: Elite athleticism, can run and jump with the best pros … 42.5-inch max vertical jump … Very quick player… Fastest lane agility, shuttle run and 3/4 court run at the NBA Draft Combine … Decent 3-point shooter, 35.3% in three seasons … After getting 32.9 minutes this season, showed he can pass the rock with 5.8 assists per game … Showed improved scoring ability his junior season with 13.5 points per game … Good body control in the air … Decent finisher … Good free throw shooter at 81.7% on the career (83.5% last season)… Has good shot selection and knows where his teammates are on the court … Works hard on defense … Has decent size at 6’3… Unselfish player, distributes to his teammates fairly well… Had a near 3/1 a/to ratio at 5.8 ast to 2 to … Can bring lots of energy to a team with his speed and quickness … Has good shooting touch from many places on the floor …

Weaknesses: Will need to get stronger to fully utilize his athleticism at the next level … Could control his speed better in transition … Streaky shooter, needs to prove he can be consistent from NBA range … Looks great in workouts with his athleticism, but not sure if this translates to the court every game … May not be strong enough to scrap with NBA point guards … Will have difficulties switching onto bigger, stronger players off of screens … Though he was the point guard, did not run the Tennessee offense with Admiral Schofield and Grant Williams on the floor … Was not a consistent scorer, but also was not the team’s top scoring option … Despite his 6’3 (in shoes) height, does not have a great deal of length with just a 6’3.25 wingspan and 7’11 standing reach … Will turn 22 in November, making him older for a junior …

Outlook:
Shaping up to be a second round sleeper … The explosive Jordan Bone completed his third season at the University of Tennessee and excelled in the NBA Draft Combine … He was first in a number of categories, and just a shade off of the max vertical leader with a 42.5 jump to Jalen Lecque’s 43 inches … Due to his speed, jumping ability and overall athleticism, Bone went from likely returning to school for his senior season to a projected mid-second round pick in this year’s draft … His incredible athleticism could carry him to an NBA roster, but to make any sort of impact he will need to learn when to turn on the speed and when to sit back and run the offense like he did at Tennessee .. Overall, he has the potential to develop into a real game changer and possibly even start if he can shoot the ball consistently and become a complete point guard …

Notes: Measured 6′ 1.5” barefoot, 6′ 2.75” in shoes 179.0 lbs, 6′ 3.25” wingspan, 7′ 11” standing reach at the 2019 NBA Draft Combine …
