Memphis Grizzlies’ rookie point guard Ja Morant will make a huge impact on the 2019-20 NBA season.
Memphis drafted Temetrius Jamel “Ja” Morant second overall out of Murray State in the 2019 NBA Draft. He’s one point guard who can do it all – create his own shot, shoot from the three-point area, and find the open man.
The Grizzlies have so much confidence in Morant’s abilities.
Hard evidence: they traded veteran point guard Mike Conley, Jr. to the Utah Jazz just two weeks after they drafted Morant.
The rookie averaged 17.5 points, 3.5 assists, and 5.0 rebounds through his first three NBA games.
This is a good sign for Memphis head coach Taylor Jenkins and Co. If Morant can keep this up, he should help the team return to the playoffs.
Let’s check out some of the best Morant’s rookie cards to date.
