    We dont need a wing player/SF, and even if we did, there are better options.

    Are you the same goose that was suggesting him on Doug Smiths blog? I would rather Joey Graham myself as well

    on a rental, sure.

    cant go wrong with guys who have a massive chip on their shoulders. you dont necessarily have to give him minutes on the floor, but his competitiveness during practice will definitely push the rotation players to perform better.

    even if worse comes to worst you have to play him, he still has a dedaly shooting stroke and big enough to stand in people's way. and he has 6 fouls.

    i wrote in the other morrison thread in "Let's NBA" that i would love to see morrison succeed somewhere... he's been shit on so much... the movie fan in me would like to see it turn around and let him have a "Rudy" moment

    but dear god... not HERE.

    I'm in the minority, but yes please. Got something to prove and is giving it his all right now. I wouldn't mind a short team deal. If it doesn't work out than he's tradeable.
    Peace. Positivity. Prosperity.

    Why would he be tradable except as cap filler?

    Do the Raptors have their 11th and 12th men yet? I doubt he'll make much impact wherever he goes but he doesn't really fit into the defensive thing that Casey has been working towards. He would give the Raps some shooting, which Joey Graham never did and never will.

    Meh.

    I'd be fine with him as our 3rd string wing player

    I'd sub him in twice a game and have him launch threes until his misses, and sub him out.

    He's an unreal shooter, and i'd love for him to make a comeback

    Nooooo. Adam Morrison is the very last person I'd want on this team as a wing player. There are players 10x better for the same price. He's not in the NBA for a reason.

    Cringe. He perpetuates the "white ballers cant jump" mantra. When MJ writes his autobio he should devote a chapter to why he picked him 3rd overall. Then he compounded that booboo by later trading for the other dud who went 4th (Thomas). What an exec.

    LOL no thanks. This would be as bad as asking Andray Blatche to join the team.

    lol no. I'd rather have Sonny Weems back. at least we saw sparks of brilliance from him at times. you're all forgetting this is just summer league.

    I dunno I could see him as a low risk/high reward type player. He's a guy that actually has a excellent offensive game. His post game comments about wanting redemption were interesting, he never laid blame with anyone else. I'd certainly take a flyer on him.

    Remember, all I asked was whether he was worth an invite, nothing guaranteed. He was never going to live up to being a top pick, but he has the potential to fill a role as a shooter deep off the bench. Plus, the stashe.

    Do I wish the best for him? Yes.
    Should we offer him a spot? No.
    It's just a question of what we need. We don't need Adam Morrison.

    Lets face it Morrison's knee problems have ruined his career so far. I'm hearing that his knee's look good in Las Vegas though. This guy can sling it as good as Steph Curry, its just a matter of having his knees. I would roll the dice on him for sure, why not? I think he could be a slayer in TO and if he stepped it up somewhat, the fans would absolutely love him. If you deny this then your just looking for attention he fits the TO fan mould for sure.

    I said no in the beginning, but after a thread I saw of him - I believe it was Joey_Hesketh who was the original poster - he seems to have passion and wants to get better at the game.

    His story his intriguing, and I have to admit, he was really good in Vegas/Orlando.

    If it's for a minimum contract, than I'll say maybe. I mean we do need shooters, and we need guys to fill up the bench..

    Pretty sure the Clippers are signing him, so this thread is moot.
