Darius Morris has agreed to a partially guaranteed contract with the Philadelphia 76ers, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports: Los Angeles Lakers free-agent guard Darius Morris is finalizing an agreement with the Philadelphia 76ers, league sources told Yahoo Sports. Morris, 22, will sign a partially guaranteed contract for the 2013-14 season, but is expected to make the 76ers’ roster and play meaningful backcourt minutes this season. Despite showing promise last season and becoming one of Mike D’Antoni‘s favorite players, the Los Angeles Lakers never seemed all that interested in retaining the services of their second-year guard. The Lakers didn’t extend a qualifying offer to Morris when the off-season got underway – they also declined to do so with Andrew Goudelock and Devin Ebanks; Goudelock is now in Russia and Ebanks is currently working out for various NBA teams – though Mitch Kupchak said there was a place for Morris on the Lakers’ Summer League team, albeit with no guarantee of a contract after the annual event in Las Vegas. Coincidentally, Morris had one of his best games of the regular season in Philadelphia when he scored 15 points in 18 minutes. Morris also started for the Lakers in the playoffs due to the team’s injury struggles; he had 24 points and dished out 6 assists in a Game 3 loss versus the San Antonio Spurs. .bottom-of-post-responsive { width: 300px; height: 250px; } @media(min-width: 500px) { .bottom-of-post-responsive { width: 300px; height: 250px; } } @media(min-width: 800px) { .bottom-of-post-responsive { width: 336px; height: 280px; } }
