Morris finished with 20 points (8-15 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), eight assists, six rebounds and one steal in 28 minutes during Monday's 90-83 summer league victory over the Bucks.
Morris continues to push his claims as the regular backup to Jamal Murray with another strong performance Monday. He has now scored in double-figures in all three summer league encounters whilst also demonstrating his ability to facilitate the offense with some nice assist numbers. His main rival is Devin Harris who, although himself being a seasoned veteran, offers little upside outside of scoring.
Morris managed 15 points (7-15 FG, 1-5 3Pt), four assists, two rebounds and one steal across 29 minutes during the Nuggets' 70-69 win over the Timberwolves in a Las Vegas Summer League contest Friday.
Morris' scoring total paced the Nuggets on the night, and his 46.7 percent success rate from the field was second only to Tyler Lydon's on the starting five. The 2017 second-round pick will try to make an impression this summer after seeing only three games of regular-season action during his rookie campaign.
Morris appeared in three games with Denver in 2017-18 and averaged 3.3 points and 2.3 assists per game.
Morris played most of the season with the Nuggets' G League team because he just wasn't able to get things going in the NBA. His best game was on Feb. 9 at Houston in which he scored 10 points and added six assists though. The former Iowa State star will be a free agent in July once his two-way contract with Denver officially expires.
Morris was assigned to the G-League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers on Friday.
Morris has struggled to find run at the NBA level, playing in just 25 total minutes, posting 10 points, seven assists, two rebounds and three steals. He's held a much more significant role in the G-League, where he's averaging 18.5 points, 6.7 assists, 4.7 rebounds 1.9 steals and 1.7 threes in 35.1 minutes.
