PHILADELPHIA — The Philadelphia 76ers are finalizing an agreement with former Los Angeles Lakers point guard Darius Morris, according to a source close to the situation.
The contract is partially guaranteed for the 2013-14 season, but the 6-foot-4 Morris is expected to make the roster and play substantial minutes, the source confirmed.
Morris, 22, averaged 4.0 points and 1.6 assists in 14.2 minutes per game last season. The Lakers selected him out of Michigan with a second-round pick in 2011.
Morris is the third guard acquired by the Sixers since the organization shipped All-Star Jrue Holiday to the New Orleans Pelicans in exchange for center Nerlens Noel and a 2014 first-round pick during the draft. He joins first-round draft pick Michael Carter-Williams and former Memphis Grizzlies guard Tony Wroten.
Yahoo! Sports first reported the deal.
