Grizzlies Taking a Look at Adam Morrison
The Grizzlies looked Monday at the possibility of adding a two-time NBA champion to their roster as a free agent.
But don’t let the resume fool you.
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.
