Juwan Morgan Rumors
James Edwards III: Pistons pre-draft participants today: Bryce Brown, G, Auburn. Jon Elmore, G, Marshall. Donta Hall, F, Alabama. Juwan Morgan, F, Indiana. Matur Maker, F, Australia. Nick Ward, F, Michigan State.
After our own Alex Kennedy spoke with his Indiana teammate Romeo Langford, we caught up with Morgan about his own journey to the NBA. How have you been preparing for the NBA draft so far this offseason? Juwan Morgan: It’s been a lot of work on movement. I’m trying to create space and knock down shots while moving and make plays off the roll. I want to set a screen, get on the wing and be able to drive. I want different moves in the arsenal to create for myself and for my teammates. After every workout, I try to make as many shots as possible. I’ve been working out with Joey Burton out of Indianapolis.
What were some of the biggest lessons you learned while you played for Indiana? JM: I learned how to work hard. When I was in high school, I was the best player on the court. But it was different in college. I was going against guys who wanted to do this for the rest of their lives. It was a different type of path and I was introduced to a new kind of work ethic. I also learned to be a pro at everything that I did. I took care of my body. I was punctual. Yogi Ferrell and OG Anunoby super helpful with that.
Jeff Rabjohns: Indiana forward Juwan Morgan has worked out for the Suns, Bulls, Pacers, Jazz, Grizzlies & Timberwolves. He is scheduled to work out for the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday and Detroit Pistons on Friday, he tells Peegs.com. #iubb
