Anthony Morrow, Nets Agree to 3 Years, $12M

The Warriors aren’t expected to match the offer. From Adrian Wojnarowski: “Restricted free-agent guard Anthony Morrow has reached agreement on a three-year, $12 million offer sheet with the New Jersey Nets, league sources told Yahoo! Sports on Friday night. The Golden State Warriors aren’t expected to match the offer, a league source said. Morrow has to take a physical Monday before he can sign the offer sheet. The Warriors will then have seven days to decide to match.”

    Nets finally get a recruit! They have a long way to go but a Billionaire owner that is willing to invest and is proud of the NBA and the challenge to build a once fallen team will do huge things for the Nets! Bring back the glory days of 02 and 03.

    All that cap space has gone towards Outlaw and Morrow so far….

    the Warriors are officially imploding….how would Nellie let this happen????? trade Randolph, now Morrow???? whats next Steph Curry???? YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME!!!!!! ughhhh…..anyways, been an on and off Warrirors fan since 2005…I’m off the bandwagon now….the Nets are absolutely making pristinely meticulous basketball decisions all across the board, they absolutely must be applauded for the job they’ve done this off-season, incredibel…..why Nellie WHY????

    dma Morrow and Outlaw haven’t even taken up 1/4 of that cap space dude, this is called building a team from the ground up. Great coaches, great young players….the squad is moving in one direction and that is up! and with that cap space still available they’ll be the only team drippin wet in the middle of the drought that will be next year’s CBA

  • C-Lo_The_Great

    FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!! A CONTRACT THAT MAKES SENSE !!!!!!!!

    prediction: the Nets will occupy a seed higher than 8 going into the 2010-2011 playoffs….bet money

  • rich

    u must be getting ur betting advice from charles barkley

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Nets are gonna love him.

  • http://slamonline.com The Black Rick Kamla

    money where the mouth is @rich, money where the mouth is, and before being negative think about what your saying. They are quickly developing one of the deepest rosters of talent in the East (in the NBA), and they’ve got 2 of the best coaches in the NBA on staff, everything is looking up for them. There are only about 5 ‘locks’ to come out of the East (Boston, Miami, Orlando, Chicago, Altanta). I wouldn’t be in the least surprised by a #6 seed…..anyways @rich put the money where the mouth is

  • rich

    they gonna b higher than millwauke?( sorry about the spelling, its even more scarce than toronto) ill give u 8th seed because felton is leaving the cats, favors is gonna need at least half this season before he starts playin well, and if nething can motivate harris, its the classic sam mitchell swift kick in the ass

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    ^ What is this myth that Toronto is “scarce?” Toronto is one of the biggest cities that has as NBA team. This is not debatable…

  • http://slamonline.com The Black Rick Kamla

    @rich okay you say Milwaukee, but which other team finishes ahead of the Nets?

  • http://slamonline.com The Black Rick Kamla

    @Teddy, huh?? must be posting under wrong article. Agreed Toronto is easily one of the biggest cities in the NBA, but its market is more international and less US oriented, and living there is a cultural adjustment that many young NBA players just aren’t terribly fond of making

  • WangChung

    Not a Nets fan, but you have to admire the way this team is rebuilding. Getting talented youngsters at $4-7 mil/yr. contracts should leave them room to sign a superstar sometime before the trade deadline. These savvy Russkies are showing us how it’s done.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    @ Black Rick Kamla:
    International? In terms of who, Canada? Toronto is NOT a cultural adjustment, it’s just that most players don’t know much about Toronto or Canada in general. No offense, but I’ve lived in both Canada (Toronto, and multiple places elsewhere) and the US (New York) and they aren’t that different. Quebec and a few other places maybe, but definitely not Toronto. Toronto is a great market, and definitely one of the best in the NBA in terms of size, bar New York, LA, and Chicago.

  • WangChung

    Teddy-the-Bear does have a point. I’d certainly rather ball in T-Dot than someplace like Minny or CLE. Tho Vince forced his way to a big market and T-mac chose sunnier pastures, so there’s still something to be said about playing/living in T-Dot.

    1. Orlando Magic
    2. Boston Celtics
    3. Miami Heat
    4. Chicago Bulls.
    5. Newark Nets (+ Murrow, Outlaw, Petro and Kirilenko is on his way I’m sure.
    6. Atlanta Hwaks
    7. Cleveland Cavs
    8. New York Knicks/Charlotte Hornets/Milwaukee Bucks

    This makes sense considering he offers the perfect compliment when sharing time with t-will, No defense or penetration with morrow to no range with twill. I hate to say it b/c I really like Williams and his game but at this point it makes more sense to start morrow and spread the floor for Harris with Twill coming off the bench and running the floor tearing sh*t up.

  • vanillagorrila

    And Canada has some outrageous taxes with freezing winters even worse than sota or milwaukee. But mainly its the taxes that scare off free agents. Nobody making millions per year cares about good social services, they only see an even bigger chunk of their paycheck going to country/province that for most of them they only live in part-time.

    Teddy, market being less US oriented…meaning whatever is happening in Toronto, which is quite a bit, is rarely known by us back stateside.

  • JoeMaMa

    Toronto is one of the biggest markets in North America, with a high standard of living, low crime, and unfortunately falls victim to the “great white north” stereotype. It’s no colder than NYC. I shake my head at players not wanting to come to my city; their loss. The nightlife, culture, friendly people, great fan support.
    Oh, and this is a big bargain for the Nets. They get a young, proven shooter for NBA-sized peanuts. Everyone needs shooters.
