The Heat are scheduled to speak with unrestricted free agent Anthony Morrow.
He's arguably the best 3-point shooter on the market, which is something the Heat could use now that Shane Battier is retired. Morrow picked up some extra playing time while the Pelicans were severely injured and showed he's capable of playing solid minutes. Still, he wouldn't be asked to play a featured role with the Heat.

Unrestricted free agent Anthony Morrow is getting interest from the Heat and Thunder.

The Magic were also interested in Morrow, but signing Ben Gordon hurts their chances. Morrow is one of the better 3-point shooters on the free agent market and would help either team's second unit. The Heat are believed to be the favorites for Morrow and a deal could be done in the near future.
Jul 3 - 3:59 PM

Free agent SG Anthony Morrow has reportedly drawn interest from 12 teams since free agency opened on Tuesday.

The Pistons were immediately linked to Morrow, but they're likely out of the running after signing Cartier Martin and Jodie Meeks. Morrow averaged only 8.4 points with the Pelicans last season and he's not a very versatile player, but he hit 1.2 triples on 45.1 percent shooting beyond the arc and his 3-point shooting should allow him to carve out a 20-minute role wherever he lands.
Jul 2 - 9:40 AM

Unrestricted free agent Anthony Morrow is set to meet with the Detroit Pistons.

Morrow is expected to meet with the Pistons "early" in the free agent process and would provide a solid shooter off the bench for Detroit after finishing fourth in the NBA in 3-point percentage last season. Morrow only played 18.8 minutes per game last season, but could be a cheap source of threes for fantasy owners if he finds himself in a situation where he's playing upwards of 25 minutes.
Jul 1 - 10:32 AM

The Pelicans confirmed that Anthony Morrow has opted out of his contract.

He will be an unrestricted free agent after he just received over the veteran minimum last year. Morrow was big for the depleted Pelicans team in April, averaging 15.1 points, 3.4 boards, 1.0 steals and 1.6 triples on 48.9 percent from the field. He should get plenty of interest with his career 3-point shooting percentage of 42.8.
Jun 20 - 9:22 AM

Pelicans' shooting guard Anthony Morrow plans to opt out of the final year of his contract.

Morrow is choosing to test the free agent market instead of playing for the $1.15M he is owed by the Pelicans next season. While his season averages aren't very impressive, his 3-point shooting provides valuable floor spacing that every team needs. He shot 45.1 percent from the 3-point line last season, good enough for third in the NBA among players with at least 150 attempts.
May 29 - 5:01 PM

Anthony Morrow made another start on Saturday and had 20 points, six rebounds, five assists, two steals, a block and two 3-pointers in a loss to Houston.

That's a very Tyreke-like line, as Tyreke Evans sat out this one to rest his sore knee. Evans was available to play, but never made it into the game tonight.
Apr 12 - 11:19 PM

Anthony Morrow is expected to come off the bench once again in Friday's game against the Thunder.

Eric Gordon (knee surgery) is out for the season, but coach Monty Williams is trying to get some defense into his lineup. Therefore, he's expected to roll with Brian Roberts, Tyreke Evans, Darius Miller, Al-Farouq Aminu and Greg Stiemsma once again. However, that shouldn't bother Morrow speculators. As a reserve for the last five games, he is averaging 19.4 points, 3.0 rebounds, 2.4 3-pointers and 1.0 steals in 29.7 minutes.
Apr 11 - 9:55 AM

Anthony Morrow came off the bench to lead the Pelicans with 17 points on Sunday, adding two 3-pointers, four rebounds and two assists in 33 minutes.

Morrow is shooting 54 percent from the field over his past eight games, and 90 percent at the free throw line. With 18.4 points and 2.4 threes per game during that span, and no sign of Eric Gordon (knee) returning, there are plenty of reasons to keep Morrow locked in active fantasy lineups.
Apr 6 - 11:49 PM

Anthony Morrow got hot during Friday's loss to the Jazz, making 9-of-11 from the field for 26 points with four boards, one steal and three 3-pointers.

He went to the locker room for what appears to be a very minor problem. There is no mention as to what happened, so he's likely fine. Morrow has really stepped it up over his last five, averaging 18.4 points, 0.6 steals and 2.4 triples in 27.8 minutes. He could flirt with this type of production and is certainly on the radar while Eric Gordon (knee) is on the shelf.
Apr 5 - 12:56 AM

Anthony Morrow scored 23 points off the bench in Monday's loss to the Kings, hitting 9-of-13 shots (including four threes) with three rebounds and two steals in 28 minutes.

Morrow had a 20-point game on Friday and just six points on Saturday, so he's a crapshoot at this time but he's worth a look as the Pelicans roll without Eric Gordon (knee).
Apr 1 - 1:55 AM

Anthony Morrow played just 18 minutes vs. the Spurs on Saturday with six points and no 3-pointers.

The return of Brian Roberts really hurt Morrow tonight and things should only get worse once Eric Gordon (knee) returns. He had a good run, but Morrow can be let loose almost everywhere.
Mar 30 - 12:03 AM

Anthony Morrow had a great shooting night on Friday, going 7-of-11 from the field and 3-of-4 from downtown to finish with 20 points in a win vs. the Jazz.

Morrow added three 3-pointers but didn't provide any other peripheral stats in his 34 minutes. He has enjoyed a bit of a resurgence with Eric Gordon (knee) injured and is now averaging 19.3 points and 2.7 triples in 32.3 minutes over the past three games. He didn't lose any minutes due to Austin Rivers' return from illness, so Morrow should continue to be a safe source of points and 3-pointers for as long as Gordon is out.
Mar 28 - 11:29 PM

Anthony Morrow turned in his best game of the season on Wednesday with 27 points on 9-of-17 from the field with five boards, one block and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

It's the first time he's topped 25 points since Feb. 3, 2012 and hitting seven two-pointers is very uncommon. He averaged just 1.6 two-point makes this season before tonight and he hadn't taken a dozen shots from inside the arc since 2012. Morrow probably won't be playing time much once the cavalry comes back, but he's still worth a look as a spot-start over the weekend until Eric Gordon (knee) and Austin Rivers (illness) get the all clear.
Mar 27 - 12:21 AM

Anthony Morrow will start against the Clippers on Wednesday night.

He'll be in the shooting guard spot and figures to get all the run he can handle. When Morrow is on the bench, Luke Babbitt might slide over to shooting guard because that's really the only play coach Monty Williams has. Morrow makes for a sneaky plug-and-play guy tonight.
