Ja Morant

Temetrius Jamel "Ja" Morant is an American professional basketball player for the Memphis Grizzlies of the National Basketball Association. He played college basketball for the Murray State Racers, where he was a consensus first-team All-American as a sophomore in 2019. He was selected by the Grizzlies with the second overall pick in the 2019 NBA draft. The Dalzell, South Carolina native and son of former basketball player Tee Morant was only lightly recruited by NCAA Division I programs and unranked by recruiting services; this was despite having been named All-Region Most Valuable Player three times and earning All-State honors at Crestwood High and School in Sumter, South Carolina. However, he made an immediate impact at Murray State, earning first-team all-conference honors in the Ohio Valley Conference as a freshman. Morant had a breakout sophomore season, which saw him win OVC Player of the Year and lead the NCAA in assists.
