The Thunder has agreed to terms with free agent guard Anthony Morrow, a sharpshooting guard who should bolster the team’s depth on the wing.
The deal is worth up to $10 million over three years, but the Thunder has a history of maintaining flexibility on the back end of contracts, making it likely that Morrow’s final year is non-guaranteed.
Morrow, 28, fills a pressing need for the Thunder with his shooting ability. He’s a career 42.8 percent shooter from 3-point range and connected on 45.1 percent from that distance in 76 games last season with New Orleans.
Morrow also has played with Dallas, Atlanta, New Jersey and Golden State.
In his six NBA seasons, Morrow has never shot less than 37.1 percent from behind the 3-point line. His consistency throughout his career ultimately is what made him so attractive to the Thunder.
Morrow also has enjoyed incredible success as a shooter despite having never played with talents such as Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant. With those two garnering the bulk of attention from defenses, Morrow could have more open looks than he’s ever had in his career.
