    Marcus Morris is a more complete player in the game of basketball as judged by coach Bill Self who also described Marcus as the most complete player he has coached (includes Deron Williams). Watching Marcus these past three years it seems evident that he is more of a three than a two but can play either. Marcus still needs work to play in the NBA. But he is a better defender by far than Boozer and has a much better attitude. Marcus has also been a man of his word.

    Does this mean I think the Jazz should draft Marcus? No, there are a number of options offering upside in particular areas that they will consider to determine their picks. It only means Marcus will be an strong asset to the team that drafts him.

    Morris could be a decent rotation player on the right team, but the last thing the Jazz need is another guy who thinks he's better than he is and is pouting over shot attempts.

    Agreed, draft Kanter if you like him, not because it's cover to take Jimmer at 12. If that's the way you feel, take Kanter, trade him to Washington for the 6th & 18th picks and then take Jimmer at 6 so Sacramento can't take him at 7 possibly.

    Kanter could be very solid or Koufos 2.0. Really is a fascinating draft. Most of these guys will be forgotten quickly after Thursday night; handful will be productive role players; Irving will probably be above average starter; but you know there's going to be 1 or 2 that are going to be very pleasant surprises, and in three years it'll be "Why didn't the Jazz draft X & Y at 3 & 12???"

    Morris is as much a quesion mark as anyone else in the draft. I am a Ute fan and I love Jimmer. I just quseion how he will do with the Jazz. Jimmer wont be at 12. I get tired of seeing these people who think we should get Kanter only so we can get Jimmer at 12. Not smart. If you dont learn from history your doomed to repeat it. I'm afraid with the bad knees and lack of experience Kanter is another Dufus Festertag. The last really productive center the Jazz had was Mark Eaton who they got him in the 4th round back before they changed it to 2 bigger rounds. Stop taking chances with big men.
    Look how many picks have been wasted on big men. I am tired of it. At least KOC cant draft High School kiddies to play SG anymore. I wish there was a great player at SG which the Jazz have needed ever since KOC took over.

    In his TV interview last night the Morris twin looked oddly familiar. He sounded like Boozer, he looked like Boozer, I hope he doesn't act like Boozer or he has no chance here. He's a tweener. We need a big, or a good wing and outside shooting. JV, EK, J'ma, Marshon Brooks.

    The last thing the Jazz need is a guy with little to no offense.

    You can't teach size. Go Kanter at 3, Jimmer at 12. Kanter, Favors, and Jefferson would be an amazing frontcourt, and Jimmer would really help to spread the floor.
