Reports: 76ers to sign guard Morris
The 76ers need some depth at point guard, so they're reportedly bringing in Darius Morris to help out.
In desperate need of point guard depth, the 76ers have turned to a former Laker.
According to multiple reports, the Sixers are finalizing an agreement with guard Darius Morris. According to Yahoo Sports, Morris' deal is for two years, but partially guaranteed, though with the Sixers depth issues, he's likely to make the roster.
The 76ers drafted Michael Carter-Williams and traded for Tony Wroten, but both are young, raw and unproven. Morris possibly could've returned to the Lakers but saw an opportunity for a bigger role in Philadelphia.
Morris spent last season mostly on the end of Mike D'Antoni's bench but was forced into action in Game 3 against the Spurs because of injuries. He scored 24 points with six assists in a blowout loss to the Spurs.
Morris, 22, averaged 4.0 points and 1.6 assists for the Lakers in 48 appearances last season.
