Morris, 32, competed in the Danny Rumph Classic at LaSalle University in Philadelphia and showed off his skills as an 11-year veteran.
Morris hopes to avoid the disappointment of being limited to just 17 regular season games last season. After that, he endured a long absence from the court Receiver A cheap shot of Nikola Jokic of the Denver Nuggets.
During last year’s postseason, Morris played in one game in the series against the Philadelphia 76ers. That cameo consisted of just three minutes of action, with one rebound and one assist.
Morris never put up superior numbers during his NBA career. However, heat gives him a strong strength in the color and he is not shy to take the role of execution if necessary.
That image is something that allows Adebayo a chance to grow his game even more than last year’s development. Adebayo has transformed into a formidable defender who is a central part of the Heat’s lineup.
A healthy Morris going through the entire NBA season and staying for the postseason could make a difference for the Heat.
Last season, the Heat suffered a disappointing loss to the Boston Celtics in seven games, falling just one game short of the Eastern Conference Finals. Whether Morris can play a role in changing the outcome remains to be seen.
