Adam Morrison Worked Out for the Memphis Grizzlies

by June 26, 2012

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.”
