The Thunder have found their shooter.
According to a league source, the Thunder will sign guard Anthony Morrow to a three-year, $10 million deal. The last season is a team option.
Morrow, 28, is a born shooter, hitting almost 43 percent from 3 for his career. In 76 games with the Pelicans last season, he averaged 8.4 points and hit 45.1 percent from deep.
The Thunder obviously needed more backcourt depth after losing Thabo Sefolosha to the Hawks in free agency, and while they’re likely to still rely on youth in players like Andre Roberson and Jeremy Lamb, Morrow adds a different dimension.
Morrow was always a top target for the Thunder, who were also chasing Pau Gasol. After missing out on that deal, they refocused on Morrow and quickly made the move to add him at a reasonable deal. (Consider: Jodie Meeks just got three years, $19 million.)
Morrow was also being pursued by the Clippers, Heat and Pelicans.
