The New Orleans Pelicans put Anthony Morrow on the block a few days ago and the Charlotte Bobcats appear to have interest, this according to SportingNews.

Morrow has been long coveted by the Charlotte front office and could be a candidate to be moved in the coming hours.

One target that has emerged, league sources told Sporting News, is shooting guard Anthony Morrow, a player who interested the Bobcats before he signed in New Orleans last summer. Morrow leads the league in 3-point shooting, at 48.0 percent, which would boost a Charlotte roster short on shooters.

Morrow has a contractual option at season end, though there appears to be some confusion if it’s a player or team option.

Regardless, he’ll only be due $1.1 million dollars – not exactly breaking the bank for a player who currently leads the league in three-point shooting.

It’s been said the Pelicans are hoping to package Morrow with Austin Rivers, but that is not mentioned in the SportingNews piece.

New Orleans is looking for a draft pick in exchange for Morrow.
