Anthony Morrow wants to finish his career with Oklahoma City Thunder

New, comments

Anthony Morrow is finishing this Thunder injury-plagued season strong, and he wants to stay in OKC for the long term.

Anthony Morrow has been one of the few bright spots in a cursed Thunder season. He was the Thunder's lone off-season signing, much to the delight of the OKC faithful (and to the derision of some who hoped for more).

After starting his season slowly, bottoming out in January when his 3-point shooting percentage dipped to 28% for the month, Morrow began his transformation into "Sniper A-Mo." Since then, Mororw's 3-point shooting has not dipped below 50% and includes multiple games where he made 6 three's on the night.

On this note, if Morrow's Instagram is to be believed, he is convinced he has found a home in OKC:

Morrow is currently signed through 2 more seasons, and given his age (29) and the position he plays, it is not difficult to see him getting at least one more multi-year contract in his career.

More importantly, Morrow seems to recognize something that is important for NBA players of his ilk - if shooting 3's is "your thing," the absolute best thing you can do is partner yourself with an elite shot creator to watch your own career skyrocket. Ray Allen prolonged his amazing career by playing with LeBron James in Miami, and J.J. Redick has transformed into one of the deadliest shooters in the game by playing with Chris Paul.

By playing along side Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, Morrow apparently sees his own future solidifying as well.
