HoopsHype Anthony Morrow rumors
At 24-30, the Charlotte Bobcats are clinging to the final seed in the Eastern Conference playoff race, and are eager to make a move to maintain that postseason spot before Thursday’s trade deadline. The team has been to the playoffs just once in its 10-year history, and owner Michael Jordan has made a playoff berth the team’s top priority. One target that has emerged, league sources told Sporting News, is shooting guard Anthony Morrow, a player who interested the Bobcats before he signed in New Orleans last summer. Morrow leads the league in 3-point shooting, at 48.0 percent, which would boost a Charlotte roster short on shooters. The Bobcats are 17th in the NBA in 3-point percentage and 28th in 3-point attempts. Sporting News
