Morris was let go by the Bucks on Sunday, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Morris hasn't appeared in a game for Milwaukee since Dec. 14, and he'll be on the lookout for a new home after parting ways with the Bucks. He's averaging just 2.5 points in four contests this season.
Morris (coach's decision) didn't leave the bench in Monday's 110-107 loss at Charlotte.
That's three straight DNP's for Morris, who's on a one-year two-way contract with the Bucks. He's only appeared in two games with the parent club and might be due for a trip to the G League Wisconsin Herd for a boost in playing time.
Morris, who agreed to join an Italian team earlier in the week, has opted out of his contract to sign a two-way deal with Milwaukee, freelance reporter David Pick reports.
Morris saw limited action in the NBA during his rookie campaign last season, totaling 98 minutes for Atlanta. During his senior year at Molloy College, he posted 19.9 points per game on 55.0 percent shooting and was selected to the ECC All-First Team. Not only was he an efficient scorer, the guard also accumulated 45 steals in 29 contests. Now, he'll have a chance to showcase that ability with the Bucks' G-League affiliate, the Wisconsin Herd. As is the nature of two-way contracts, Morris will be able to spend as many as 45 days at the NBA level, should the team choose to call him up.
Morris, after playing just 98 minutes for Atlanta during his rookie campaign, will opt to take his talents to Italy, where he's likely to see more run. The Molloy College product saw 16.3 minutes per appearance for the Hawks, averaging 4.7 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.2 assists. During his senior year of college, Morris was awarded ECC All-First Team and posted 19.9 points per game on 55.0 percent shooting. He was also a significant contributor on defense, swiping 45 steals across 29 contests.
Morris (ankle) was waived by the Hawks on Thursday, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Morris latched on with the Hawks late last year, signing a pair of 10-day contracts before inking a deal for the rest of the season. However, a lingering left ankle sprain costed him the final 15 games of the season, so Morris never really got a chance to earn consistent run. In need of some additional roster spots, the Hawks are now set to waive Morris, who will likely go unclaimed and become an unrestricted free agent. It's unclear what sort of interest he'll find elsewhere in the NBA, but it wouldn't be surprising if Morris started the 2018-19 campaign in the G-League.
