Last season, Marcus Morris was one of the newest Pistons, arriving along with Reggie Bullock after a trade with the Phoenix Suns for a second-round pick. He was mostly quiet and reserved, seemingly with a wall up, part of the rugged and tough-as-nails personality the Philadelphia native so readily claims.

“After a year, he’s more comfortable and knows people, so he can develop a little bit of trust. Hopefully, he realizes how respected he is here — and I don’t think he has felt that level of respect everywhere he’s been. That allows him to rise up today,” coach Stan Van Gundy said.
