Adam Morrison Not Retiring From Basketball

After impressing in summer league action in July, Adam Morrison received a camp invite from the Trail Blazers this fall, earning a chance to land a spot on the team's regular-season roster. Before the preseason got underway, Morrison indicated that he expected to retire if he was cut by the Blazers. However, even though he was in fact waived by Portland before the season got underway, Morrison's playing career may not be over just yet.

Morrison's agent at Priority Sports, Brad Ames, tells David Pick of Sportando that his client is open to joining a team overseas. According to Ames, he and Morrison are "looking for a good Euroleague or Eurocup situation" for the former third overall pick.

Morrison, who hasn't appeared in an NBA regular season game since the 2009/10 season, seemed reluctant to continue his career overseas when he discussed retirement last month, noting that "I did the Europe thing and it just wasn't for me." Still, at age 28, it sounds as if he's not ready to give up on his playing career and the possibility of an NBA comeback quite yet.

"Adam is open to whatever is the best move for his career, but he belongs in the NBA and that's his goal," Ames told Pick. "If we don't have anything (from Europe) over the next few weeks, Adam will consider the D-League for call-up opportunities."
