Monte Morris the favorite to start at PG?August 04, 2022 | 08:37 AM

Josh Robbins of The Athletic said he believes that the Wizards traded for Monte Morris with the expectation that he will be the starting point guard. Analysis: Robbins said Delon Wright will have an opportunity to compete for the job, but Morris has the edge after a strong season in Denver filling in for the injured Jamal Murray. Wizards coach Wes Unseld Jr. also has some familiarity with Monte from his Denver days and was thrilled with the trade. "He's one of those throwback-type point guards," Unseld said. "He's looking to make plays first. He's very capable of creating his own shot. He's expanded his 3-point range as he's matured in this league." The winner of this PG battle between Monte and Delon should have an easy path to late-round value.
