Some much-needed sharpshooting has officially arrived in Oklahoma City.

The Thunder finally announced the expected signing of Anthony Morrow on Wednesday afternoon, a deal that is worth $10 million over three years, with the final season nonguaranteed.

Morrow is a career 43 percent 3-point shooter who shot 45 percent from deep last season in New Orleans. OKC didn’t have a player above 40 percent from three in 2013-14.

“Anthony Morrow has demonstrated that he is amongst the most consistent and efficient three point shooters in the NBA over his career, and we are pleased to welcome him to Oklahoma City and the Thunder organization,” Presti said. “With his body of work, we feel Anthony is a unique addition to a diverse roster, while also possessing the toughness and selflessness that we are consistently seeking in Thunder players.”
