The Rockets selected Kansas forward Marcus Morris with the 14th pick in the NBA draft Thursday night. The 6-foot-9 Morris was drafted immediately after his twin older brother, Markieff, was taken by Phoenix at No. 13. Marcus Morris was named the Big 12 player of the year after averaging 17.2 points and 7.6 rebounds in 38 games for the Jayhawks in the 2010-11 season. The Rockets missed the playoffs and ended up with the 14th overall pick for the second straight season. Houston also has the 23rd and 38th overall picks in the draft. With Morris, Houston added some size with the future of Yao Ming in doubt. The top overall pick in 2002, the 7-foot-6 Yao has been plagued with foot and leg injuries in recent years, and played in only five games in the past two seasons. The 235-pound Morris says he's open to slimming down and moving to a small forward spot, if that's what the Rockets need from him. "I think I can just get in there and fit wherever they want me to play," Morris said.
