Anthony Morrow Ready To Contribute


Nice article from Jim Eichenhofer

quote:

...When Morrow explored his options in free agency this summer, one objective was to find a place where he’d have a chance to earn a rotation spot, something he’d done in each of his first four NBA seasons. After discussions with Williams and Pelicans GM Dell Demps, Morrow believed New Orleans was an excellent fit.

“I saw that they had a vision and a plan for me,” Morrow said. “I haven’t really had that since I left New Jersey. It was tough going through those things, where you’re not a part of something you feel like you should be part of – when you’re working hard, but not getting an opportunity. Now I feel like it’s a clean slate and I’m on a very good team. I feel like we have a legit chance to make the playoffs.”

“He’s a guy who probably hasn’t gotten a fair shake the past couple years,” Williams said. “But he can flat-out shoot. He loves the gym, which is something we value. He’s got some toughness about him, and will knock down big shots. He’s going to be fighting for minutes at that backup (shooting guard) spot. We’re looking for a big-time battle between he and Austin (Rivers), and some of our other wings.”

...“He’s a great guy and a great addition,” Anderson said of Morrow. “He can really light it up. He’s a guy that can come in the game and make a huge impact. Obviously, the more shooters on a team the better. I think we can really balance off each other well. To add another scorer, another outside presence, kind of takes some of the pressure off of me.”

...“When you’ve got guys who can get to the rim like Jrue, Tyreke, Eric (Gordon) and Austin, who can not only finish, but also draw attention, it’s going to open up a lot,” Morrow said. “It’s going to complement my game and Ryan’s game. I think we’re going to complement those guys as well, with what we can do. It’s going to be nothing but good things for the team overall.”

For all the talk about Tyreke closing out games at SF, sometimes Morrow and Anderson on the floor together might be a better idea. Each side of the floor could have a creator and elite floor spacer.

One of the NBA’s premier perimeter shooters, Morrow ranks fifth among 400-plus active players in career three-point percentage (.424).

I remember this guy in college. Had no he would be a double digit scorer in the league. It would now remind me of how much his college coach had to live off of elite talent just to keep his job.

He should be a nice, cheap, role player for us.

I guess that depends on how much small ball we play, but Monty says he's fighting Rivers for minutes so take from that what you will.
