Saying Adam Morrison’s basketball career peaked in college is an understatement. He was a star at Gonzaga, co-player of the year, and it earned him the third overall pick in the 2006 Draft to the Charlotte Bobcats.
Since then, it’s only been bad news. Morrison sat out the 2007-08 season with an injury then he got traded to the Los Angeles Lakers where he barely ever saw the floor while they won two NBA championships. He was released after the 2009-10 season, signed with the Washington Wizards, and was cut from their team before the next season even started. He’s been playing overseas ever since.
Now he’s back, giving it another try. Morrison is playing for the Brooklyn Nets in the Orlando Summer League, hoping to impress their coaches or the coaches or scouts of another NBA team. He clearly wants another chance to prove himself.
"I like playing the game," said Morrison. "I still have a love for the game. And that's why I'm still coming out here every day do...
BEST OF MAXIM
It’s been clear for a while that Andray Blatche wasn’t going to develop into the player the Washington Wizards hoped he would be. He started showing some promise a couple years ago, but after this season, his stock has bottomed out.
The Wizards have the option of using their one-time amnesty on Blatche and getting his $7 million off their payroll for next year. Blatche would...

In a rather uneventful game that was littered with sloppy and inconsistent basketball, the Hawks blew out the Wizards 102-82 in the team's first summer league game of 2012. I know the score doesn't matter, I know these games don't count, so let's get to the real reason why we found ourselves watching: Bradley Beal. The kid started off hot. He showed off his great...
Bradley Beal Day is Here
The Washington Wizards get their first action of the Vegas Summer League today, as they play the Atlanta Hawks summer team at 4:00 PM (EST) at the Thomas & Mack center.
For many Wizards fans, this will be their first opportunity to watch 3rd overall pick Bradley Beal in action. The much anticipated debut of the sweet shooting guard will definitely...
Since the Washington Wizards are currently only $2 million under the salary cap the team does not possess the ability to shop for a high profile free agent in the summer of 2012. This means that outside of the small moves Washington makes to fill out their roster the Wizards won’t be involved in any [...]
One of the major headlines coming out of Wizards nation the past few days has been the buzz surrounding the team’s impending decision to sever ties with Andray Blatche.
Now I don’t work in the front office, nor do I have exclusive insight to what’s being discussed in Ernie’s office, but I’d be quite surprised if the status of Blatche remains in question for...
