In Focus: Adam Morrison

Adam Morrison, the third pick in the 2006 draft, has likely played his last NBA game after being waived by the Trail Blazers on Saturday. The Gonzaga alum was a second-team All-Rookie selection after averaging 11.8 points in 78 games for the Bobcats in 2006-07, but his career went downhill quickly. He missed his sophomore season recovering from ACL surgery and was traded to the Lakers in February 2009. Though he won two championships in Los Angeles, he seldom played. He was with the Wizards in training camp in 2010 before playing in Europe. He hoped to make the Blazers but was one of five players cut on Saturday.
