Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Boston Celtics have had free agent forward Adam Morrison work out for the team. Morrison worked out for the Celtics staff on Tuesday, and apparently was planning on doing so again Wednesday. The 3rd overall pick in the 2006 draft, Morrison has had a lackluster NBA career to say the least. Morrison has averaged 7.5 points and just over 2 rebounds for his career, and his addition to the Celtics would be nothing more than a developmental project.
Although this doesn’t sound too promising, it seems to be a low-risk move for Boston in practically every way if contract talks actually begin to heat up. Another body on the team to give the aging Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett rest won’t hurt.
On top of that, the contract will most likely be pocket change for the Celtics, so if it all pans out in the negative direction, in the end there would be nothing gained, and nothing really lost. Morrison was great when he was in college, and still shows some of that talent from time to time. Again, it’d be a low-risk project.
