One of the most impressive ball-handlers in terms of a combination of vision and instincts to come out of the NBA Draft in recent years. Throws players open. Leads his teammates like an elite football Quarterback. Uses both hands well to deliver passes on the money.
A dynamic threat in the open court that should only become more dangerous with more spacing at the next level. Does a fantastic job of shifting gears and has the instincts to know when to attack openings in the defense. Unselfish passing ability and quick handles make him terrifying for opposing defenses.
Freakish athleticism from the point guard position. Attacks downhill with a mission to cause serious harm to any rim or defender in his way. Plays the game with the "edge" that you would want from a floor general. Possesses sports car like speed to blow by defenders in any situation. Does a good job of taking on contact, but will need to add to his frame to adjust to bigger defenders in the NBA.
Will need to fine-tune his shooting mechanics to become a more dependable scorer from multiple levels. Needs to develop his ability to shoot off the bounce. Funky mechanics featuring a slow release will need a shooting coach to tweak his form.
Gets caught ball watching from time to time. Some might wonder if he's disinterested on the defensive side of the ball, specifically away from the ball. Needs to lock in, prone to become a back door target. Might be because of his heavy workload offensively at Murray State.
Achilles heel is his overall frame. Morant has all the tools teams covet from a modern era point guard. His frame will be the only thing holding him back. Teams will target him in switching situations, forcing him to guard bulkier players. Could use the added mass to improve his ability to take on contact in the lane as well.
