After four unremarkable NBA seasons, 2006 co-college player of the year at Gonzaga and third overall NBA Draft Pick Adam Morrison disappeared. Now he’s back. And as Adam Morrison as ever. Morrison is trying out for the Brooklyn Nets at the Nets’ free agent camp. Here he is talking to the local press: Photo from NBA.com's Adam Zagoria (@AdamZagoria) via Twitter Morrison’s trademark bushy do is gone, as is his mustache. But there is nonetheless something very Adam Morrison about his new look. While it may appear as though Morrison recently emerged from two years living in the wild, his only companion a wolf named Hugo, he was last seen this spring playing with Turkish club Beşiktaş Milangaz. (Beşiktaş Milangaz is the team that retired Deron Williams’s number after Williams played 15 games with the club during the lockout.) Morrison spent three months with the team before leaving because of a lack of playing time. Prior to his stint with Beşiktaş Milangaz, Morrison played 8 games last fall for Red Star Belgrade in Serbia, averaging 15.5 points per game. Morrison played his first two NBA seasons in Charlotte, averaging 11.8 points per game as a rookie and being named to the Second All-Rookie Team. Over the next three years (including two seasons with the Lakers) he saw limited minutes, thanks to a knee injury and a declining field-goal percentage. He averaged only 2.4 points per game during his last NBA season with the Lakers. You probably remember him wearing street clothes and sitting on the bench during the Lakers’ 2009 and 2010 championship runs. [Insert tired joke about Adam Morrison having two more rings than LeBron James.] Adam Zagoria, NBA.com writer, did a nice piece on Morrison’s comeback attempt for his blog.
