Ja Morant said he was not sure which teams he might visit - his agency, Tandem Sports, is still planning that, and Morant might not need to work out at all. "If my agency decides that I will work out with a team," he said, "it will probably be the top three. But I guess soon we'll see."
Some of that came from his time spent with Chris Paul at the CP3 camp last summer. That's where he better learned how to play off ball screens, a staple of being a point guard in the NBA. "I loved how Chris Paul was hands-on with everybody," Morant said, "and what I learned the most was handling the ball-screen situations. I know at Murray we run a lot of ball screens. So we watched film. He showed us how he attacked screens, what he was trying to read on the floor, and that's what I took most from that camp."
