Morrow is open to the idea of playing overseas and would love to join Williams in Turkey if the opportunity presents itself. “I would definitely consider it,” Morrow said. “I wouldn’t rule that out. I think I speak for a lot of guys when I say we just want to play basketball. At the end of the day, that’s what it’s about. I love this game so much. If the right offer came from a team overseas, and it happened to be Deron’s team, I would love to go over there and play.” HoopsWorld

Nets guard Anthony Morrow has been chilling in Atlanta during the lockout, but was back in New Jersey Wednesday night to attend a charity event, and the 6-5 Morrow said so far he's doing okay. He's working out everyday and playing pickup games against other NBA players just about everyday. He's also played in Pro-Am leagues in Atlanta and Charlotte, his hometown, and he took part in a Labor Day Weekend celebrity game with rapper Ludacris and teen pop sensation Justin Bieber. "That was a lot of fun,'' Morrow said of the celebrity game -- the annual LudaDay Game in Atlanta. "KD (Kevin Durant) came out, Brandon Jennings, Chris Paul, 'Melo (Carmelo Anthony), CJ Watson, Chris Singleton, John Wall, I think Kemba (Walker) was there, Josh Selby and (rappers) Oochie Wally and Teyana Taylor.''
