But as boisterous as his arrival in New Jersey has been, Mr. Morrow's journey to this stage in his career has been anything but. After being named "Mr. Basketball" in North Carolina in 2004, he struggled to distinguish himself in four seasons at Georgia Tech. "I saw him a couple times in college and he didn't really light it up," said Mr. Kerr, who was the general manager of the Phoenix Suns when Morrow was preparing for the 2008 NBA Draft. "He got a little lost on his team. It just didn't seem like he really blossomed there. Then he got lost in the shuffle as far as the scouts are concerned."
