Report: Anthony Morrow agrees to two-year deal with Pelicans

By Royce Young | NBA writer

Fresh off revamping their backcourt, the Pelicans are adding one of the premier marksmen in the game.

Guard Anthony Morrow has agreed to terms on a two-year deal with the Pelicans for the veteran minimum, according to Yahoo Sports. The second year of the contract is a player option.

The Pelicans have already brought in Jrue Holiday in a trade and Tyreke Evans in a free agency sign-and-trade. Morrow is next, and while he's not marquee, he's a suitable role player who fills an apparent need for the team.

A career 42.4 percent 3-point shooter, Morrow has bounced around the last few seasons, spending time with the Warriors, Nets, Hawks and Mavs.

Morrow, 27, averaged 4.0 points while shooting almost 40 percent from 3 last season in 41 appearances with the Hawks and Mavericks.
