In the NBA, you need a strong outside shooter who can step into his shots to win titles. Ray Allen, Trevor Ariza, Derek Fisher, Bruce Bowen, Robert Horry, Rip Hamilton Steve Kerr have proven that corollary over the past decade and a half.
That strategy seems to be in play here, as a bunch of NBA playoff teams are looking to acquire one of the best shooters in the game today. Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski tweets this:
G-State restricted free agent Anthony Morrow has slew of interest, including Spurs, Celtics, Lakers, Blazers, Clips and Jazz, sources say.
It’s hard to say which place he would fit in the best if the 46 percent three point shooter (seriously, I look at that stat and shake my head in bewilderment) decided to look elsewhere. Boston probably works the best if Ray Allen departs (Utah too if Kyle Korver is gone), although L.A. and San Antonio could use a sharpshooter with Fisher aging and Roger Mason disappointing respectively.
