Pelicans add Morris to training camp roster

Free agent guard Darius Morris is reportedly headed to camp with the Pelicans

The New Orleans Pelicans have been seeking an additional point guard and apparently they have found one — at least for now. 

According to Scott Kushner of the New Orleans Advocate, the Pelicans have signed veteran Darius Morris to a training camp contract.

Morris was among a field that Kushner earlier reported was under consideration. Along with Morris, it included free agents Ty Lawson, Tyrone Wallace and Erick Green.

Wallace, a restricted free agent combo guard from the Los Angeles Clippers, was also recently signed to a deal (reportedly for two years and $3.1 million) by the Pelicans. It is not yet known if the Clippers will match.

Morris, 27, played college ball at Michigan and professionally for the Los Angeles Lakers, Philadelphia 76ers, Los Angeles Clippers, Memphis Grizzlies and Brooklyn Nets. He has also spent time in the G-League.

He last played in the NBA with the Nets in the 2014-15 season. He played the previous two seasons with the G-League’s Rio Grande Valley Vipers.

Morris has compiled NBA career averages of 3.3 points and 1.4 assists in 132 career games.
