NBA Mock Draft: Marcus Morris Linked With Charlotte Bobcats

The latest NBA Mock Draft is out from SB Nation's Tom Ziller and Kansas star forward Marcus Morris is listed as a definite lottery choice, coming in at No. 9 with the Charlotte Bobcats selection. The downside to the mock is that Ziller's description has nothing to do with Morris' talent but rather realizing that the Bobcats haven't exactly displayed a penchant for choosing international players:

I'm not saying Michael Jordan avoids foreign-born players like he avoids good fashion, but the thought of Charlotte taking someone like Donatas Motiejunas just made me laugh out loud. Better stick with MADE IN THE U.S.A. products.

Good thing for the Bobcats, in this case, that Morris has definite potential at the pro level, so he should fare better than other selections made by Jordan in the lottery (i.e. Adam Morrison, Kwame Brown). After averaging 17.2 points and 7.6 rebounds a game at KU last season, Morris has been called a lottery level talent since early in the 2010-11 season. With the Bobcats, Morris' well-rounded game would work well after the team traded fan favorite Gerald Wallace earlier this season.
