Anthony Morrow agrees to 1-year, non-guaranteed deal with Blazers

Anthony Morrow agrees to 1-year, non-guaranteed deal with Blazers”

The Portland Trail Blazers are expected to sign free agent guard Anthony Morrow to a one-year deal, his agent Wallace Prather told Shams Charania of The Vertical. Briscoe and Goodwin were recently signed to training camp deals, as first reported by ESPN.

Briscoe, 21, is an undrafted rookie out of Kentucky.

Morrow is entering his 10th National Basketball Association season.

He last played with the Philadelphia 76ers in both the Las Vegas Summer League and the Salt Lake City Summer League.

The Blazers are a bit short on depth in the backcourt with Shabazz Napier and Pat Connaughton listed as backups to Damian Lillard and C.J.

The addition of Morrow gives Portland 18 players heading into training camp. He played in 49 games with the Oklahoma City Thunder and Chicago Bulls in 2016-17, averaging 5.5 points and shooting 38.9 percent from the field.

Morrow was in the eyes of many teams, including the Minnesota Timberwolves, who worked him out along with another five free agents earlier this month.

Morrow can potentially replace Allen Crabbe's shooting ability. Only Stephen Curry, Kyle Korver and Klay Thompson have matched Morrow's career efficiency (41.7%) and volume (8.0 attempts per 100 possessions) while playing even half as many minutes as Morrow.

For Morrow, Portland offers an opportunity to compete for a roster spot on a potential playoff team.
