Former Gonzaga Star Adam Morrison Trying To Earn Celtics Camp Invite

Adam Morrison has had a forgettable NBA career since the Charlotte Bobcats made him the third overall pick in the 2006 Draft. Though he won two championships with the L.A. Lakers after Charlotte traded him there, he did so on the deepest part of their bench, and never made a meaningful contribution.

But all those factors haven't prevented the Celtics from expressing an interest in him. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports that Morrison worked out for Boston yesterday and will do so again today. It's important to note that, according to Wojnarowski, "the Celtics aren’t close" to making a decision on Morrison, but that he could at least join them for training camp when it opens at the end of the month.

Morrison, a 6-foot-8 forward, owns career averages of 7.5 points and 2.1 rebounds, a far cry from the 28.1 points and 5.5 boards he posted in his final season at Gonzaga. Worse, he's converted an ice-cold 37.3 percent of his shots from the field at the NBA level. Wojnarowski says Boston is interested in Morrison because it is "searching for another shooter," but if Morrison's NBA resume is any indication, GM Danny Ainge would do well to look elsewhere.
