(“More people should cry,” Morrison said. “And when I get to the NBA, more people will cry.” Yeah, like fans of the team thinking about picking Morrison up.)
No need to worry about Adam Morrison, guys. He’s been working out for the Celtics and hopes to score a training camp invite, but there’s no chance in hell he’ll actually make the team. Right? RIGHT??? (Yahoo!)
Still searching for another shooter, the Boston Celtics have Adam Morrison working out for their front-office and coaching staffs this week at the team’s practice facility, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
Morrison worked out on Tuesday and planned to do so again on Wednesday, sources said.
The Celtics aren’t close to deciding if they’ll make any kind of make-good contract offer for training camp.
Believe me, I’m all for the token white guy who waves a towel at the end of the bench. Just not if it’s Adam Morrison. I would rather sign Diana Taurasi and see what she could do against the big boys. And that’s almost in all honesty.
P.S. – Filed under the “if you care about assistant coaches” department, the Celtics are also prepared to hire Roy Rogers to replace Clifford Ray. Rogers actually had a nine-game cup of coffee with the Celtics during the 1997-1998 campaign, averaging a whopping 0.8 points, 0.6 rebounds and 0.1 assists.
He was then a throw-in in the Chauncey Billups for Kenny Anderson trade, a trade that worked oh so well for the Celtics. Most recently, Rogers was an assistant coach for the New Jersey Nets, who obviously would have lost a lot more than 70 games last season had Rogers not been around to give wonderful advice.
