Morris played just 98 minutes for the Hawks but flashed defensive potential during that brief stint. After Morris had played just two games for the Hawks ex-coach Mike Budenholzer praised him for his lateral quickness and toughness on defense.
When Morris signed with the Hawks, he said play-making and driving to the basket were his strengths along with his defense. Morris attempted more than half of his 22 two-pointers at the rim and made six of 12 tries in that range. However, Morris’ poor three-point shooting in college and the G League followed him to the NBA, where he made 2 of 10 tries, and he committed six turnovers along with seven assists.
