Anthony Morrow, a sixth-year shooting guard who spent last season with the New Orleans Pelicans, is looking to opt out of his contract and test the free agency waters this summer, according to a report by HoopsHype’s Jorge Sierra. Depending on what they do in the Draft, the Denver Nuggets might be interested in bringing him out west.
Morrow is coming off a strong season in which he was one of the top three-point shooters in the league, averaging 45.1% while connecting on 88 out of 195 attempts from behind the arc. The percentage represented his best performance from deep since his first two seasons in the league with the Golden State Warriors between 2008 and 2010.
Morrow stands 6′ 5″ and has lined up at both the shooting guard and small forward positions, so he provides prospective teams with some options when it comes to getting him on the court. He’s average at best on the defensive end of the court and he doesn’t really fill up the stat sheet beyond his potential to occasionally post a big scoring night, but seeing as no player on the current Nuggets roster shot better than 38% from three-point land last year, Morrow could definitely fill the three-point specialist need for the team.
What do you think, Nuggets fans? Is Anthony Morrow a player you would like to see the Nuggets pursue this offseason or do you think his game is too one-dimensional to warrant opening up the coffers for his services? Share you thoughts in the comments below or get at me on Twitter @TheSEShepherd.
