Before we started the interview, Markieff told us he wanted to go to the Suns. Well it looks like he got his wish. The Phoenix Suns selected him with the 13th pick, one pick ahead of his twin brother, Marcus. The 6’9” 241 lb power forward brings toughness to the Charmin soft Suns, who trot out Channing Frye as their premier big man. The Morris twins wreaked havoc on Big 12 opponents while with Kansas leading the Jayhawks to the Elite Eight while averaging 13 and 8 (Markieff) and 17 and 7 (Marcus), respectively.
Before his big day at the Prudential Center, we talked to Markieff at the Sean John Official NBA Pre-Draft Style Suite with Conversion Sports to see just how Complex he really is.
