New Orleans Pelicans general manager Dell Demps continues to work the free agent market, adding a place for sharpshooting veteran Anthony Morrow on the roster.

Morrow, 27, is a 6’5 shooting guard  and six year veteran who played his best seasons in Golden State. He led the league in three-point percentage (46.7%) his rookie season in Oakland. Morrow played a few years in New Jersey, and spent last season with the Atlanta Hawks, before a February trade sent him to the Dallas Mavericks. He saw time in half of the 82 game season.

Morrow can bring his 3 point shooting to the Pelican lineup, but not much else. He struggles in halfcourt offensive sets, can’t create for himself off the dribble, and is a liability on defense. Demps, Monty Williams, and the rest of the Pelicans staff is aware of this, making it likely that Morrow will only be used in a specialty shooting role, spotting up for shots on the wing and in the corner.

According to Yahoo! writer Marc Spears, Morrow’s contract is a two-year deal at the veteran’s minimum, with the second year including a player option.
