Vorkunov: Nets G Anthony Morrow To Honor Drazen Petrovic

Mike Vorkunov of NJ.com reports that New Jersey Nets guard Anthony Morrow will wear the jersey of former Nets and Portland Trail Blazers guard Drazen Petrovic during this weekend's Three-Point Contest. ------------------------------- Petrovic was a Net for two-plus years, from midway through the 1990-91 season until 1993, and left a large impression on the franchise. He died in a car crash at 28 years old that summer. His No. 3 jersey is one of five retired by the organization after he spent his only two full seasons with the team averaging more than 20 points-per-game in each. "I just remember -- I don't remember a whole lot -- but I remember he could shoot real, real good," Morrow said. ------------------------------- Former Blazers guard Rudy Fernandez honored former Blazers guard Fernando Martin in a similar way during the 2009 Slam Dunk Contest. Martin also died tragically in a car accident. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
