Adam Morrison and Al Thornton, two former lottery picks who played overseas this season, are among the 20+ free agents who will participate in the Nets' first free agent camp later this month, league sources tell NetsDaily. The camp, runs from May 21 to 23. It will include several former NBA draft picks, international players and D-Leaguers.
Morrison, 27, split his time between Serbia and Turkey this season. He hasn't played in the NBA since 2010 when he was cut by the Wizards in training camp following two seasons --and two rings-- with the Lakers. A 6'9" small forward, he was almost signed to a 10-day contract by the Nets in 2011 but severely sprained his ankle. He was taken by the Bobcats at #3 in 2006.
Thornton, 28, played in Puerto Rico, where he dominated the league. In his last NBA stint, Thornton played in 71 games in 2010-11 for the Wizards and Warriors. The 6'8" power forward averaged 7.4 points and 3.0 rebounds in 19 minutes per game. He was taken at #14 in the 2007 Draft by the Clippers and was named to the All-Rookie First Team.
