    Not athletic, but extremely skilled SF that can post up against smaller 3's ... think Melo or Pierce.

    Rockets see him ultimately as a 3 according to Feigen

    He defended many 3's in college, and had no issues.

    So happy with Morris. Glad the Suns picked the wrong twin. Seems like they always get the lesser of the brothers

    Morey CLEARLY underestimated our biggest need, which is size at the center/Pf position. It baffles me how other teams keep getting more athletic and we stay undersized.

    He's too big for a 3, not athletic enough for the 3 spot, and doesn't have the quick step as a 3.

    Lebron,Carmelo,Iggy,Danny G,Paul Pierce,Carlos Boozer, etc...... He's going to go against these guys!!!!

    Remember that in the playoffs means better players.. It's not like we are going to play the Raptors every time.

    Right, but some of those guys were traded to get very good assets-- ex. Martin, Dragic and our pick this year at 23

    IF he is to stay in Houston I think he will play the 3.

    Morey has the ability to draft great Trade baits...

    Good to see someone here that knows what they're talking about. Called it and I love the pick. Welcome to the H. He wasn't nominated for player of the year for nothing.
