Β When the New Jersey Nets received Anthony Morrow's from the Golden State Warriors in a four team trade. They have a shooter who deadly from mid-range and from the perimeter, and it has nothing to do with the pace of the Don Nelson Warriors system. Morrow had great teammates to play with from Monta Ellis to Stephen Jackson to Stephen Curry and to plenty more racked up high-volume stats in Warriors fast and loose offensive "system," He only averaged 13.0 points per game in his final season with the Warriors, but he shot an absolutely tremendous 45.6% from three-point range. He was eight in the league in effective field goal percentage last season, and a still impressive 19th in shooting percentage. With Morrow scoring all around the field, Devin Harris, Brook Lopez, Travis Outlaw, and Troy Murphy all would benefit from his shooting. Morrow and Harris make a pretty nice looking backcourt for the Nets. Harris needed another scorer to take the pressure off him. This also will leave Lopez open more because of the double team on Morrow. Avery Johnson will make Morrow a All-Star because of the opportunity that there for him. Terrence Williams could also start with Morrow to make the Nets even stronger. People say Morrow is a solid citizen and lights out perimeter shooter. Trading Courtney Lee was a blessing for the Nets.
