Adam Morrison signs with Blazers
ESPN.com news services
Former Gonzaga star Adam Morrison has signed a one-year deal for the league minimum with the Portland Trail Blazers, according to his agent.
The forward played in Turkey last season, averaging 11.8 points in just 22 minutes per game.
Drafted third overall by Charlotte in 2006, Morrison spent 2½ seasons with the Bobcats before being traded to the Los Angeles Lakers midway through the 2008-09 season.
Morrison was on the Lakers' roster for two championships after being dealt to L.A. with Shannon Brown for Vladimir Radmanovic, but the 27-year-old has not been a rotation player since suffering a serious knee injury that cost him the entire 2007-08 season.
