Adam Morrison won America’s heart while playing for college basketball’s perennial Cinderella, Gonzaga. Unfortunately, he has not had the same effect on NBA general managers, and he is now without basketball-related employment. With no NBA team in need — or want — of his services, Morrison is going back on his original statement that he would retire if he did not make the Trailblazers this season by turning his eyes back toward Europe. The former NCAA Player of the Year played in Serbia and Turkey last season after being cut by the Lakers after the 2009-10 season. “We are looking for a good Euroleague or Eurocup situation for [Adam],” said Brad Ames of Priority Sports Management, according to Sportando. “If we don’t have anything [from Europe] over the next few weeks, Adam will consider the D-League for call-up opportunities.” Morrison’s most productive season as a pro was his rookie year with the Bobcats. Morrison averaged 11.8 points and 2.9 rebounds in 29.8 minutes per game. He was traded to the Lakers  the following year for Vladimir Radmanovic. The Clippers signed Morrison to their summer league team this year, where he averaged 20 points, five rebounds and an assist in five games. The summer league led to a training camp invite with the Blazers, which ended with him being waived Oct. 27. Photo via Facebook/Adam Morrison
