Adam Morrison Worked Out for the Memphis Grizzlies

Adam Morrison is trying to get back into the NBA, and the former third overall draft pick is part of the group of free agents who recently worked out for the Memphis Grizzlies. Per the Commercial Appeal: “The Grizzlies looked Monday at the possibility of adding a two-time NBA champion to their roster as a free agent. [...] Adam Morrison, 27, spent the past two years playing in Europe and was considered an NBA bust after the Charlotte Bobcats made him the third overall pick in the 2006 draft. The 6-8 small forward last played in the NBA for the Los Angeles Lakers. He primarily sat on the bench during two straight title runs in 2009 and 2010. But the Griz wanted to see if Morrison recaptured the shooting ability that earned him that high lottery selection out of Gonzaga. Morrison never panned out for the Bobcats, having endured a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in 2007 and unyielding criticism for shooting 37 percent in four NBA seasons. Morrison was one of several former NBA players auditioning for the Grizzlies. The team declined to reveal the names of players participating in the free-agent camp, and declined to comment on the session. Morrison received an invitation after reportedly performing well at a free-agent camp put on by the Brooklyn Nets in May.”

    The next Larry Bird. Because they have a similar shooting stroke. What a joke.

    this might not be too bad a situation for Mr. Morrison – there are a whole bunch of guys on the Grizzly team that are similar in size and length as Mark Morrison, if worse comes to worse he would be a good practice squad player for Memphis

    I feel sorry for the guy but come on I think anybody with sense had to know that he wasnt gonna do well in the pros. He was NOT worthy of that 3rd pick, I was 15 years old at the time of that draft and even I knew that

    Would be cool if he got another chance in the league.
