Every year, multiple NBA teams hit the deadline looking for a shooter.
The New Orleans Pelicans know this and have reportedly but Anthony Morrow on the trade block, hoping to capitalize on his sharp shooting skills. It’s said the Pelicans are looking for a draft pick in exchange for Morrow – which doesn’t seem to be that unreasonable.
New Orleans has made Anthony Morrow available for a draft pick, league source says. Morrow has a $1.15M player option for next season.
The Pelicans obviously aren’t expecting a lottery pick for Morrow, but would likely be willing to accept a mid-to-late first round pick from a playoff team looking to add some perimeter depth for a postseason run. The Houston Rockets are said to be one team in search of a perimeter threat, but they’re also looking to acquire a wing who can defend – something Morrow isn’t exactly known for. An undrafted product out of Georgia Tech, Morrow is shooting 48% from behind the arc this season where he’s averaged 6.3 points per game. Morrow is just one of many Pelicans players allegedly on the block.
