Report: Anthony Morrow agrees to 1-year, non-guaranteed deal with Blazers

Shams Charania of The Vertical first reported the Morrow agreement via Twitter on Friday.

He averaged to 12.6 points, 2.5 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 0.5 steals, and 0.1 blocks per game with the Nets.

The 31-year-old went on to have a terrific rookie campaign, averaging 10.1 points and three rebounds in 22.6 minutes per outing.

The Blazers are a bit short on depth in the backcourt with Shabazz Napier and Pat Connaughton listed as backups to Damian Lillard and C.J.

Now, Portland is adding a seasoned veteran to the competition for its 15th standard regular-season roster spot - Anthony Morrow. McCollum, respectively. Their roster is at 14 at the moment (training camp roster is at 18 now), so signing a guard like Briscoe to a training camp deal makes sense. Morrow spent the 2016-17 campaign split between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Chicago Bulls. Morrow, who played his collegiate basketball at Georgia Tech, went undrafted in 2008 but landed with the Golden State Warriors as a free agent after an impressive showing in the NBA Summer League.

Wilcox signed a two-way contract with the Trail Blazers. Crabbe was the second-most efficient 3-point shooter last season, so signing a floor-spacer like Morrow to replace him is a sensible move for Rip City.

In addition, it's unclear if any of the aforementioned players are given the opportunity to remain with the team past the preseason.
