Anthony Morrow is coming to Oklahoma City. And the dude can shoot.
The free agent sharpshooter agreed to terms with the Thunder on Saturday, giving Oklahoma City a much-needed perimeter option. Here’s the reaction from around the web:
Only a couple people on the planet can shoot the ball like Anthony Morrow. That’s a steal for OKC in this market.

FWIW, every Pelicans player/coach I spoke with in January cited Morrow as one of the catalysts in the locker room. The adult in the room.

Jodie Meeks at three years $19 million, or Anthony Morrow at three years $10 million? Looks like the Thunder did well here.

Another player with inferior # s and no rep for D signed before Jimmer. I can’t be the only one fascinated by this… pic.twitter.com/0WULwPRqnl

One downside to Morrow: zero playoff experience. Not a deal breaker, but noteworthy. #Thunder

Anthony Morrow is a career 43% 3-point shooter, shot 45% from deep last year. Averaged 8.4 pts in 19 minutes. Instant offense for OKC.
