Difference is Grizzlies are super solid defensively team wise. Kings suck booty overall.
Also guard defenders outside of truly elite ones like CP3 and beyond have impact that can move the needle they are not of great wing defender value and not even close to a great big mans defensive value.
Your buying Fox’s offense here.
Yeah, I'm not one of those people that gets influenced by what guys in different organizations have done. I just look solely at their skillsets and talents and then try to project what they can do for me. Morant landed in Memphis, a much more solid organization than Sacramento. Judging players off pure talent, I think Fox is just outright better.
Shooting: Neither can shoot. Fox is attempting more threes but shooting poor percentage. Both are subpar free throw shooters in the low 70s. Wash.
Defense: No brainer. Fox was the better defender in both college and the NBA. Morant is currently a sieve.
Shotcreating: Fox, no question. Morant can run the pick and roll and get to the rim at a decent degree, but Fox is one of the best slashers at the position.
Passing: Both have been equal distributors at the NBA level but Morant was a passing phenom in college. He's going to eventually be a 40% distributor at the NBA level. Morant gets the nod.
Overall, Fox is better, though. He's just in a crappier organization.
