Sixers Continue Buying Scratch-offs; Sign Darius Morris
The Sixers were looking at a number of options to be the third point guard behind Michael Carter-Williams and the recently signed Tony Wroten. They’ve officially found their man in Darius Morris.
Morris, who spent last season with the Lakers, is another project guard in the Sixers’ growing experiment of throwing shit at the wall to see what sticks. He played in 48 games for the Lakers, averaging 14.2 minutes a game while shooting under 39% from the floor.
This is a very Sixers signing. Morris is a 22 year old project that needs to work on his shot and Brett Brown has conveniently formed a player development think tank with the additions of Chad Iske, Lloyd Pierce, and Greg Foster. Hand, meet glove.
On what’s being reported as a two year non-guaranteed deal, this is a good move for the Sixers as they search for a semblance of talent in the dregs of free agency. If he improves, they’ve found a quality bench player. If he doesn’t, I hate to say this, the Sixers might not win the title this year. Sorry to crush your dreams.
