Brooklyn Nets to work out Adam Morrison during summer league

Wednesday July 4th, 2012

Adam Morrison, the No. 3 overall pick by the Charlotte Bobcats in the 2006 NBA Draft, will work out with the Brooklyn Nets during the summer league, according to a tweet on Tuesday from Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports.

Morrison could be an inexpensive, low-risk signing for the Nets, who find themselves highly improved but committed to large contracts with Joe Johnson, Gerald Wallace and possibly Deron Williams and Dwight Howard.

A standout player at Gonzaga, Morrison has been one of the more disappointing picks in draft history. He spent time with the Bobcats and Lakers, winning a championship in Los Angeles in 2009 and '10, his last season in the NBA.

He played sparingly throughout his short-lived NBA career, averaging seven point and two rebounds in 20 minutes per game. He last played in Turkey in April 2012.
