Darius Morris signs with 76ers

After a season that saw him play extended games and minutes for the Lakers, point guard Darius Morris found a new home for 2013-14. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, Morris is finalizing a partially guaranteed deal with the Philadelphia 76ers.

 

 

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.
