Former Gonzaga University star Adam Morrison of Mead has accepted a training camp invitation with the Washington Wizards, according to a Washington Post blogger Michael Lee, who quotes two league sources.
Morrison, who spent the last two seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers, worked out for several teams in Las Vegas, including the Wizards, and an individual workout with Wizards coach Flip Saunders.
“I haven’t played basically in two years, so I’m just looking for a place to get some quality minutes and try to get back in that rhythm again,” Morrison said in Las Vegas.
Morrison worked out for the Boston Celtics last week, but selected the Wizards because he hopes to find that rhythm in Saunders’s offense, according to a league source quoted by Lee. The same source said Morrison worked out at Verizon Center on Tuesday.
The Wizards have just 12 players under contract and president Ernie Grunfeld has mentioned that two or three roster spots could be available in training camp.
Training camp begins on Sept. 28.
