Freeman: Adam Morrison To Be Invited To Blazers Camp

Joe Freeman of The Oregonian reports on Twitter that free agent forward Adam Morrison will be invited to Portland Trail Blazers training camp on a one-year, non-guaranteed deal. Sam Amick of SI.com has also confirmed the terms of the deal. Morrison, 28, was the No. 3 pick in the 2006 NBA Draft. He busted out of the NBA following a serious knee injury and appeared in just 161 games for the Charlotte Bobcats and Los Angeles Lakers, holding career averages of 7.5 points and 2.1 rebounds per game. Since leaving the Lakers in 2010, he has played professionally in Russia and Turkey. Morrison was in Las Vegas for this year's Summer League, averaging 20.0 points and 5.0 rebounds per game for the Los Angeles Clippers. Chris Haynes of CSNNW.com has these quotes from Morrison's agent, Mark Bartelstein. ---------------------------- "I have spoken to a number of teams interested in Adam and it was because of his sensational performance at Summer League, Bartelstein told CSNNW.com. "I don't think there was a better offensive player out there. He opened a lot of people's eyes this summer." "He's never received a real opportunity since he got hurt, to prove that he can still play this game. Adam just wants a fair opportunity," Bartelstein said. That's all. He believes in himself and he's excited to be back in the league." ---------------------------- Over the weekend, it was reported that free agent big man Dallas Lauderdale could be a Blazers camp invite as well. The Blazers currently have 15 players under contract. Guard Elliot Williams is out for the season following surgery on his Achilles. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
