Morris played in 48 games last year, mostly due to injuries to starter Steve Nash and back-up Steve Blake. With just a 4.0 point per game average on 38.8% shooting, the guard out of Michigan didn’t get a renewed contract from the Lakers, making him a free agent. After speculation the 76ers were considering former Laker guard Chris Duhon, they instead went to Morris, whose contract is only partially guaranteed.
