Los Angeles, (GaeaTimes.com)- Anthony Morrow has decided to leave his former team Golden State Warriors and join New Jersey Nets for the next three seasons. The player will reportedly sign a deal with New Jersey Nets worth $12 millions on Monday if everything falls into place. However, the reports are not confirmed yet as neither the player, nor New Jersey Nets officials have confirmed anything about the same.
Anthony Morrow, the shooting guard who went drafted out of the Georgia Institute of Technology in the 2008 National Basketball Association draft, later signed by the Golden State Warriors proved himself to be the best pure shooters in the NBA. However, after missing out on the several good free agents like Carlos Boozer, Tyrus Thomas who signed contract with other teams, New jersey Nets could not afford to leave Anthony Morrow and the team made an aggressive pitch for him, like sharpshooting and athletic guard. It seems that given the financial situation of Golden State Warriors, the team will not probably afford to spend money to keep Anthony Morrow in their team.
Anthony Morrow, 24, secured 13 points for Golden State Warriors in their last season. The reports claim that he has reached the final agreement with New Jersey Nets and will sign the final written agreement on Monday, July 12. 2010. However, the Golden State Warriors will have only seven days to decide if they will be able to afford Anthony Morrow in their team. The sharp shooting free agent who in the 13th game of the 2009-2010 NBA season got his deserved recognition when he set his new career high with 6 three point and came victorious over the Dallas Mavericks.
