Morris (6’9”, 245) has appeared in 715 games (376 starts) across 11 seasons with Miami (2021-22), L.A. Lakers (2020-21), Detroit (2019-20), Oklahoma City (2019), Washington (2016-19) and Phoenix (2011-16), recording averages of 10.9 points on 44.6 percent shooting from the field, 34.1 percent shooting from 3-point range and 77.7 percent shooting from the free-throw line, 5.2 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 24.8 minutes per contest.

Per the New York Post, “the Nets now have four of their maximum 20 training camp spots left open: All three Exhibit 10 deals, as well as one of their two-way contracts (undrafted rookie Alondes Williams got the other). Restricted free agent David Duke Jr. had initially rejected their two-way offer in hopes of landing a standard deal, but the signing of Morris to the final standard spot ended that possibility.”

Morris, who is 33 years old, was limited to just 17 games played last season with the Heat due to injury, posting averages of 7.6 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 17.6 minutes per game. Prior to his injury-shortened campaign in 2021-22, Morris was 10th in the league in games played (698) from his rookie season in 2011-12 through the 2020-21 season.

Morris has made six playoff appearances in his career, including helping to lead the Lakers to the 2020 NBA Championship.

The Philadelphia native has seen action in 51 playoff games (22 starts), registering averages of 7.2 points on 42.1 percent shooting from the field, 36.9 percent shooting from distance and 80.0 percent shooting from the free-throw line, 4.1 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 20.4 minutes per game.

Morris was selected with the 13th pick in the first round of the 2011 NBA Draft by the Suns after spending three years (2008-11) at the University of Kansas, where he was named All-Big 12 Second Team as a junior.
