Marcus and Markieff Morris Enter the 2011 Draft

Posted by CoHoops DeAnte Mitchell
Both Thomas Robinson and Tyshawn Taylor assured Kansas fans that they would return to school and not enter the 2011 NBA draft.

That same assurance didn't occur with the twins. Both, Marcus and Markieff Morris have entered their name in the 2011 NBA draft.

Marcus Morris has been labeled as the most gifted twin and with so many other players returning to school, he could go very high in the lottery.

Scouts love his ability to play inside-out. Marcus has a great jump shot and excels in fast-paced offensive games; very high motor.

Same situation with his brother Markieff Morris. Markieff had a magnificent season where he averaged 13.6 points, 8.3 rebounds, 1.1 block and shot 58 percent from the field.

Markieff is a solid rebounder with a chance to be productive inside. Unlike his brother, Markieff has solid bulk and will be able to bang inside with NBA four's; although more weight should be added.

The twins are very efficient players and could have a successful career at the next level.
