NBA Draft News: Markieff Morris In Play For Pistons At No. 8, Says Report

Markieff Morris could be in play for the Detroit Pistons at No. 8 in Thursday's 2011 NBA Draft, according to reports. Vincent Goodwill of the Detroit News reports that Markieff, considered the lesser prospect of Kansas' Morris twins, may have played himself into consideration for No. 8 in a workout Tuesday in Detroit. ESPN's Chad Ford also reports that the Pistons will consider Morris among others at No. 8.

Markieff has been rated lower than his twin brother Marcus Morris in every top NBA Mock Draft for the entire draft season. It will be a major upset if he is drafted ahead of Marcus, who stood out as a better scorer and more polished offensive player for the Jayhawks.

Ford reports that the Pistons will also consider Kawhi Leonard, Kemba Walker, Bismack Biyombo and Tristan Thompson with their pick. The only position where the Pistons seem to be set for the future is center, where 2010 No. 7 pick Greg Monroe is slotted.
