According to Yahoo Sports, the Philadelphia 76ers are apparently planning to add a former Los Angeles Lakers guard Darius Morris to their backcourt, but have guarded himself nicely by only signing him to a partially guaranteed contract.
Morris started 19 games for the Lakers last season, averaged fourpoints and 1.6 assists in 14.2 minutes per game.
After leaving the University of Michigan following his sophomore season, Morris was a second-round pick of the Lakers in 2011.
Morris reportedly turned down a chance to return to the Lakers for his third season for a bigger role with the rebuilding of the 76ers.
The 6'4 guard is still just 22, younger than some of this year's draft picks, and has twoyears already in the league. He is expected to make the 76ers' roster and play meaningful backcourt minutes.
With the 76ers, Morris will likely function as the backup point guard for the Sixers, as there's no reason for them to limit Michael Carter- Williams minutes during his rookie season. Morris and Wroten will battle it out for the second-unit job throughout the 2013-14 campaign.
