Morrison, in the right draft and right situation had a shot to be more than a useful player.
He was drafted in a bad spot and way too high. McDermott, if he goes in the middle of the draft to late draft, where the expectations won't be as high, has a chance to be an average to above average player which in turn becomes an asset.
He reminds me a bit of Gordon Hayward in that respect.
I bring up LaVine as a guy who can be got because I do think that a team drafting in 8/9/10/11 (where I think he goes) might be willing to trade and I think Ujiri could try to trade for a late lottery pick there by perhaps dangling a guy like Ross plus a pick. Yeah, I'm that high on him ...
