The Celtics are being very open minded when it comes to their roster next season and some team officials spent Tuesday watching a workout by former third overall pick Adam Morrison, who spent the past two seasons winning two NBA titles with the Los Angeles Lakers while on their bench.
Morrison is a free agent and looking for work, and the Celtics are seeking a shooting specialist to bring off the bench. Morrison has proven in his four NBA seasons that he is not talented enough to be a starter, but perhaps he is prepared for a more expanded role than the one he played with the Lakers. Morrison was active for one game during the NBA Finals and never found much playing time with Los Angeles as Phil Jackson opted for Sasha Vujacic as his gunner off the bench.
Morrison has played in just 161 games over four seasons — missing the entire 2007-08 season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee — and has averaged 7.5 points and is a career 33 percent 3-point shooter. The workout was apparently a one-man session so the Celtics were unable to gauge Morrison’s skills.
