Free agent PG Darius Morris has worked out for the Lakers, Grizzlies and Pistons.
He's also expected to work out for the Jazz. Morris has four years of NBA experience with career averages of 3.3 points and 1.4 assists, but he made a lot of strides in the D-League this season with averages of 23.3 points, 6.4 assists, 4.3 rebounds, 1.9 steals and 2.3 3-pointers. He's 26 years old and will be looking to latch on with a Summer League team in the hopes of receiving a training camp invite. Thu, Jun 8, 2017 12:16:00 PM

Darius Morris suffered a leg injury and will be out for three months.

That should put the kibosh on his chances to join an NBA team this season. Morris was close to getting an overseas deal, but that will likely still happen at some point.

Nets waive G Darius Morris.

He'll have a tough time getting a deal with another team. Morris didn't play more than 10 minutes in any March or April game last season.

Darius Morris (illness) returned to practice on Saturday.

It looks like he will be ready for Game 1 on Sunday, but he won't see more than a few minutes as long as Jarrett Jack and Deron Williams are healthy. We should have another update after shootaround.

Darius Morris (flu) did not practice on Friday.

We're going to be considering Morris questionable for Game 1 on Sunday, but he's a negligible part of the Nets' rotation, so there aren't any fantasy implications if he's unavailable.

Darius Morris played 19 minutes against the Pistons on Saturday with 10 points, two rebounds, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers during a 98-93 loss.

The Nets want to limit Jarrett Jack's minutes and that could lead to Morris playing in the high teens. With Deron Williams out indefinitely, Morris could have some low-end value in deep leagues.

Darius Morris could step into the rotation for Friday's game against the 76ers.

Coach Lionel Hollins said that he didn't want to overwork current starter Jarrett Jack with Deron Williams (ribs) sidelined, so Morris will have a chance to step into the rotation Friday. However, with career averages of 3.5 points and not much else, there's not much reason to get excited about Morris. Leave him on the wire.

The Nets have signed G Darius Morris.

Morris boasts career-averages of 3.7 points, 1.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game, and he'll struggle to find minutes playing behind Deron Williams and Jarret Jack. Leave him on the wire.

Blazers waive G Diante Garrett and G Darius Morris.

Neither had much of a chance to make the team. Garrett and Morris are likely headed to the D-League.

Darius Morris has signed a non-guaranteed contract to join the Portland Trailblazers training camp.

Morris was reportedly close to signing with Crvena Zvezda of the Euroleague, but will now get a shot to earn a spot with the Blazers. He has been bouncing around the NBA on various 10 day contracts and stints with the D-League and will likely take his talents overseas if he cannot latch on to an NBA team.

Crvena Zvezda of the Euroleague is reportedly in talks to sign Darius Morris.

The deal is reportedly close to happening and would be for $450,000 next season. The 23-year-old has played with the Lakers, Clippers, 76ers, and Grizzlies over three NBA seasons and would hope to use his time in Serbia as a springboard towards a return to the NBA.

Darius Morris has been acquired by the Rio Grande Valley of the D-League.

Morris had been playing with the Memphis Grizzlies as recently as February, but failed to hook on with the team for a second 10-day contract once Mike Conley returned to action. Morris wasn't much of a fantasy option when he was with the Grizzlies, so it goes without saying that his fantasy value is non-existent outside of D-League fantasy leagues.

Grizzlies sign PG Darius Morris.

Morris will be playing on a 10-day contract, providing some depth at PG behind Nick Calathes until Mike Conley (ankle) is ready to return. He's not worth fantasy owners' attention outside of the deepest leagues.
Mon, Feb 3, 2014 12:21:00 PM

Darius Morris will be signed to a second 10-day deal on Thursday.

He signed his first 10-day deal on the first day NBA teams can offer that type of deal and he'll get another look. Morris played just six minutes on Wednesday, so he might not last beyond the second 10-day. NBA teams would need to offer a guaranteed deal after two 10-day contracts.

The Clippers sign G Darius Morris.

Teams can sign players to 10-day deals starting today and LA didn't waste any time. The Clippers have been using Darren Collison and Jamal Crawford at point guard with nobody behind them, so Morris will provide some emergency depth.
