Wizards keeping an eye on Monte Morris

- by

Josh Robbins: At least several teams expect the Washington Wizards to enter draft day intent on trading for a veteran point guard, league sources said. One name to keep an eye on, sources tell @davidaldridgedc and me, is Denver’s Monte Morris.

What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Just because there’s a lot of interest league-wide in Monte Morris does not mean the #Nuggets are moving him. Source told me this morning it’s “highly unlikely” he’s getting traded tonight. – 12:42 PM
Harrison Wind @HarrisonWind
Prospects that I’m told are in play for Denver at 21: Tari Eason (if he slides), MarJon Beauchamp, Dalen Terry, Blake Wesley. Also, the Monte Morris trade talk is very real, but only if it ends with the Nuggets upgrading their roster. Calvin Booth will be aggressive today. – 12:18 PM

Re: Monte Morris
Washington could be trying to grab a backup point guard. Their interest in him doesn’t necessarily mean they’d want him to start. What if the price is KCP? You’d still have other assets to possibly package for something bigger. – 10:13 AM

Look, all I will say is this:
If the Nuggets do in fact draft a point guard like Nembhard or a combo guard like Wesley, they better be getting a hell of a package for Monte Morris.
It strikes me as a poor use of resources unless Monte’s the conduit to a strong defender. – 11:55 AM

Other veteran ball-handlers said to be available for trade, in addition to the aforementioned Murray and Russell, are Utah Jazz point guard Mike Conley, Charlotte’s Terry Rozier, Pelicans point guard Devonte’ Graham, along with Nuggets table-setter Monte Morris. -via Bleacher Report / June 23, 2022
That means change is likely coming. Once Jamal Murray returns next season, Denver will have three capable point guards in Murray, Monte Morris and Bones Hyland. Morris, according to a league source, has generated significant trade interest and is among the most coveted players on the Nuggets. -via Denver Post / June 18, 2022
