Martin was a part of the small forward rotation at the very end of last season, playing decent defense and chipping in 6 points per game during the garbage time that was Washington's month of April. He's joined by Morrison, the oft-chronicled and seriously unsuccessful player, who continues to struggle with the awkward reality that he's better at hitting tough shots than open ones, without being good enough of a player to justify taking any tough ones. And considering that the only thing he's good at is scoring, this would be the reason why Adam Morrison's career thus far has been spectacularly underwhelming. The knee injury didn't help, but that's not what caused all this.
Adam Morrison - Workouts with basically every NBA team over the summer eventually culminated in a training camp contract with the Washington Wizards, yet that in turn eventually culminated on losing out on a roster spot to Cartier Martin. Morrison is unsigned, not in the D-League nor anywhere, and would probably do well to suck it up and go to the D-League. The prorated $25,000 salary is a far cry from the $5.5 million he earned last year, but if he treats it like summer league (and produces as if it was summer league as well), then that might represent his one chance at a ticket back. In spite of everything else, Morrison is not talentless.
Adam Morrison - Morrison is one of the biggest draft busts of all time. He can make tough shots, but because of how unbelievably unathletic he is, every shot is a tough shot. Morrison can't play defense, doesn't want to rebound or pass, and seems to make every shot harder for no obvious reason. On the rare occasions that he gets to play, he continues to take the kind of shots that he took in college, but without the justification for doing so any more. The resulting concoction is just not a good player. The only ability he has is one he shouldn't really be utilising.
Note: Non-US teams that the player
has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in
that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not
the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where
no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League
split in Japan.
