RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2016-17

Following the trade of his twin brother Marcus to the Pistons last July, the combustible Morris didn’t shy away from making it known that he wanted out of Phoenix. Despite his two-way talent and relatively affordable four-year, $32 million contract, the Suns were similarly motivated to move Morris, but couldn’t find an offer they liked in the offseason, an understandable scenario given the forward’s off-court baggage. Morris eventually backed away from his trade demands and joined the Suns for training camp, but it didn’t take long for him to stir up trouble. Through the first few months of the season, Morris saw his role in then-coach Jeff Hornacek’s rotation decline, and even failed to see the court during a four-game stretch despite being healthy. Morris’ contentious relationship with Hornacek came to a head in a Dec. 23 contest, when he threw a towel at the coach in frustration after being subbed out of the game. After serving a two-game suspension, Morris and Hornacek were able to publicly patch up their differences, but it was no secret the Suns were still motivated to trade the forward following yet another instance of insubordinate behavior. Perhaps as a means of showcasing him to other teams, the Suns reinserted Morris into the starting lineup for five games prior to the All-Star break, and he responded with his best production of the season, averaging 20.6 points, 7.6 rebounds, 4.6 assists, 1.4 blocks and 1.0 steal in 34.9 minutes per game. That strong stretch of play finally allowed the Suns to find a trade partner, with the 27-year-old being sent to the Wizards on Feb. 18 in exchange for a protected first-round pick. Morris would go on to appear in 27 games with the Wizards, starting 21 of them and averaging 12.4 points, 5.9 boards and 1.4 assists while shooting 46.7 percent from the field. Now a member of an organization that seems committed to him as their starting power forward, Morris should be in for a relatively drama-free campaign, but from a fantasy perspective, his value probably takes a hit in Washington, where he’ll often rank as a fourth or fifth option on the offensive end while sharing the court with John Wall, Bradley Beal, Marcin Gortat and Otto Porter.

2015-16

After an encouraging 2013-14 campaign in which he posted career-highs across the board, Morris took his game to a new level last season, averaging 15.3 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 2.3 assists in 32 minutes per game while shooting 47 percent from the floor. Morris started all 82 games for the first time in his career, though he's been one of the league's more durable players since entering the league in 2011, as he's missed only one game over the last three seasons. At 6-10, Morris has the size to bully smaller defenders inside, but he showed an increased desire to operate in the mid-range and perimeter last season. Per Basketball-Reference, more than 60 percent of Morris' field goal attempts came from beyond 10 feet, with a career-high 25 percent coming from the mid-range. As a result, Morris got to the line less frequently, attempting 2.8 free throws per game, down from 4.0 per game in 2013-14. His percentage also took a slight dip, sinking from 79 percent in 2013-14 to 76 percent last season. As of late-August, Morris remains a member of the Suns, but there's a good chance that could change. Extremely displeased by the organization's decision to trade his twin brother Marcus to Detroit this offseason, Morris lashed out at the organization, expressing his desire to be moved before the start of the season. Morris told reporters that he will show up for training camp, but he insisted that he's "going to be out" before the season gets underway. Whether the Suns will comply with Morris' demands remains to be seen, but if they opt to keep Morris around, the situation figures to become even more tumultuous.

2014-15

Morris is entering his fourth season in the NBA, all of which have been with the Suns. In 2013-14, Morris enjoyed a career season, averaging 13.8 points, 6.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.6 blocks, and 0.8 steals in 23 minutes per game. He shot 49 percent from the field on 10.4 shots, 32 percent from three on 1.3 shots, and 79 percent from the free-throw line on 4.0 shots per game. With a starting gig all but guaranteed, Morris is a sure bet to continue seeing similar playing time this season. He averages solid points totals and chips in decent rebounding numbers but does little else to warrant fantasy consideration. Without Channing Frye on the roster, it's possible that Morris sees a slight increase in minutes and with it an increase in scoring and rebounding. The more likely scenario is that he maintains his role, with Anthony Tolliver, T.J. Warren, and others absorbing Frye's minutes. It remains to be seen whether Morris can replicate last season's production, but he's one of the more versatile, high-upside wing options in 2014-15.

2013-14

Morris showed modest statistical improvement last season, mostly a result of a slight increase in playing time. He stretched the floor as a 6-10 forward and managed to make better than 33 percent of his threes for a second straight season. A sagging field goal percentage and lack of shot-blocking ability saps his value.

2012-13

Morris seems to have a skillet that can help most NBA teams. He can shoot, defend and rebound at a high level. For whatever reason he did not get much playing time this year, and with the addition of Scola, it's likely that he just got bumped from bench player to bench warmer.

2011-12

Morris is an intriguing rookie coming out of Kansas. He has legitimate size for a power forward (6’10, 245), and could even see some minutes at center. He was a monster on the glass at Kansas, and has legitimate three-point range. If both Lopez and Warrick continue to underwhelm, Morris could find himself some playing time and is a talented enough big to have fantasy value.
