This is an excellent end of season review from Markus by his ultimate boss. Looks like he will be on the team for multiple years .

It really helps  MU on the recruiting front to have another guy in the Association .

Agreed it will help recruiting. Goes to show that if you stick with Wojo for 4 years you'll likely end up in with All-Conference honors and in the NBA.

Markus seeing a bit of action in the past few days and is finally on the scoreboard for the season. That said, numbers are rough: 2-11 on threes, 3-17 overall shooting. It's a limited sample but tough to get more minutes based on that performance.

I wonder if Markus' time with the Nuggets (and the league) is coming to an end?

PJ Dozier just tore his ACL, so probably not.

Mike Malone likes him and knows what he can do.  He’s exploded for points numerous times last year and did so again in the preseason.  Coming in cold for small minutes and being out of rhythm/not scoring as a result isn’t the best indicator and is an anamoly

This.

It's not that Markus is playing only sporadic minutes because of his stats. It's that his stats are suffering because he's playing only sporadic minutes.

Dozier just got hurt. Markus probably will play a little more. If he hits a couple 3s, he'll play more.

He's a little guy who can make his mark by hitting 3s, by hustling, by drawing charges, etc. And Malone likes his character and intelligence. Pretty sure he's always gonna be an end-of-bench type guy in the NBA, but that's OK. There are worse ways to make a living!

I agree, and have long held that it's REALLY hard to assess a TALENTED player's value if they only get 2-4 minute stints of action, in which if they don't produce/have a turnover, it's bench city.   8-)

Markus's challenge in the NBA will be if he can hold his own on D and not get abused on that end.  Markus can score effectively at the NBA level if he can play 30 minutes a night.

I have a very hard time imagining that MH will ever play 30 minutes a night.

I agree.  Was saying that his offensive game could support 30 minutes per night, but that he'd get abused on the other end of the court to where it won't happen (30 minute per night player)

Malone uses Howard just about right.

I can't imagine many if any coaches in the NBA giving Markus more of a run.

8pts, in 5 mins tonight, 3-3.  if you prorate that to 48 mins he gets like 72?

That performance is why the worries about him getting dropped cause of a cold stretch are silly.  Again, he’s shown many times that he can score effectively in bunches, including in the playoffs.  When he’s getting limited run, it can be deceiving.  But if he goes 1/4, 1/5, 0/2, and 3/3 in couple minutes over 4 games.  It looks like 3 bad games and a great one.  But in reality it’s just the natural streakiness of a scoring guard stretched out

Very happy for Markus, as I am of all of our former Marquette guys who are now in the NBA, Europe and other pro leagues.

Markus worked extraordinarily hard for our alma mater's basketball team, led us to 3 NCAAT appearances in 4 years, and was (and continues to be) a great representative of our university. I hope he sticks around the NBA for many years, and I believe that singular much-in-demand skill he possesses will let him make money playing basketball for a long time.
