The Nets will sign 6'5" shooting guard Anthony Morrow, a restricted free agent, to an offer sheet worth $12 million over three years. Although both sides have agreed on the terms, Morrow won't sign the sheet until Monday, perhaps to give the Nets time to do a sign-and-trade with Golden State and avoid the seven day waiting period.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski, who broke the story Friday night, Golden State is financially pressed and is not expected to match. Marcus Thompson II, who covers the Warriors, thinks it's unlikely as well but the Warriors might be tempted to match. Warrior GM Larry Riley told a reporter Friday they'll consider matching, but didn't commit.
In a tweet posted after the news broke, Morrow wrote, "I'm extremely thankful to be in this position."
In his two years in the league, Morrow has shot 47 percent from the field and 46 percent from 3-point range. He led the league in 3-point percentage as a rookie and ranked fifth last season, averaging 13 points per game for Golden State. Morrow will be 25 years old in September.
