Darius Aaron Morris (born January 3, 1991) is a backup point guard for the Los Angeles Lakers. Morris played two years at the University of Michigan before entering the 2011 NBA Draft.

College Years

Upon completing his sophomore season, Morris set the school mark for most assists in a season. He also led the Big Ten in assists and earned Third Team All-Big Ten honors.

Professional NBA Career

The Lakers selected Morris in the second round of the 2011 NBA Draft with the 41st overall pick. In his rookie season, Morris played sparingly; logging just 8.54 minutes per contest over 19 games.

With the addition of Chris Duhon alongside Steve Blake, who is the primary backup point guard for the Lakers, Morris will likely continue to receive minimal playing time. However, his long-term development could be significant for the future of the Lakers, who would like to eventually get below the luxury cap level to avoid the escalating tax penalties instituted by the new Collective Bargaining Agreement.
