Lakers rumors: Anthony Morrow contacted by Lakers, according to report

USA TODAY Sports

The Lakers continue reaching out to three-point specialists.

The Los Angeles Lakers have contacted swingman Anthony Morrow, according to Alex Kennedy of HOOPSWORLD. Other teams that have reached out to Morrow include the San Antonio Spurs, Phoenix Suns, Houston Rockets and New York Knicks.

Morrow is a career 42 percent three-point shooter despite having a down year with the Dallas Mavericks in 2012-2013. After being traded by the Atlanta Hawks, Morrow shot a career-low 20 percent from beyond the arc in the 17 games he played with the Mavericks. In his rookie season with the Golden State Warriors he shot a career-high 46 percent from deep.

A five-year veteran, Morrow has shot over 40 percent from long-range in three of his seasons in the NBA.

The Lakers have reached out to multiple perimeter shooters and reportedly made an "exploratory offer" to Chris Copeland of the New York Knicks who shot 42 percent from three-point range last season. With an emphasis on perimeter shooting, the Lakers are clearly looking to make moves that will improve their floor spacing.

Morrow could be a step in the right direction in their search for a three-point specialist, and it also doesn't hurt that Dwight Howard once named Morrow in his list of players he'd like to play with.
