Default Adam Morrison? Any team going to pick him up?

You guys think any team is gonna try to pick him up? He was beasting it in Serbia.

Quote:
The revival of Adam Morrison took another turn on Tuesday, when he was allowed out of his contract with Red Star Belgrade in Serbia to pursue the sort of promotion that seemed so unlikely just months ago.
According to a source close to Morrison -- who had no opt-out clause and was being paid approximately $350,000 on a one-year deal that began in October -- was let out as a "good faith" gesture. After averaging 15.5 points per game and showing some of the fiery style for which he was known in college, Morrison received significant interest from some Euroleague teams and is even confident he could return to the NBA.

I don't think so. He was solid for Red Star but I can't see him being able to consistently get his shot off and create offense in the NBA. He might be helpful as a spot up shooter, but there's a lot of guys that can do it better than him.

Apparently some good Spanish teams are interested in picking him up and that's probably a better destination for him.

I think a young team who needs a scoring punch should take a chance on him. My Wolves have enough guys who can score but play no d so I don't want him playing for us but maybe a team like the Bobcats. Go back to where it started. Who else do they have that can score on that team except there PG's?

Why not, Clippers need a shooter. Ammo can be cheap. Sterling like it that way.

Gomes at least can defend.
Morrison is completely worthless when his shot is off (and that's quite often ).
It's like playing 4 vs 5

Morrison can be a bench player but he isn't good enough to be a starter in the NBA.

adam morisson could prolly take wayne ellington's spot on the bench right now if he had to compete for it. what the hell is wayne ellington's purpose for even being on the wolves? him and pekovic are worthless.

Peković has been playing really well overseas.
He averages 15 points and 5 rebounds in 27 minutes in Euroleague.

I agree with you about Ellington, he is an undersized 2 guard that jacks up shots like crazy. He can shoot though and I think he is a solid 12th man, he can come in if someone else gets injured and play limited minutes.

Pekovic is a beast in the post. He is a very good scorer and always gets a great seal in the post. He struggles defensively though and he should go to a team who can mask his lack of defensive ability and can utilise his massive bulk and post skills. He doesn't fit on the Wolves, when he played together with Love it was the worst defensive frontcourt in the league.

That does not say a lot. . Remember Krstic is still relevant on that league.

Indy needs a Dunleavy replacement to curl off some screens and hit some spot ups when the offense stagnates, I'd take him for the minimum.
