New Home For Pseudo-First Rounder

When the Knicks signed Randolph Morris late in the 2006-07 season, then-president Isiah Thomas said that Morris was the equivalent of a first-round pick and that the Knicks' 2007 pick would just be gravy.

That worked out well.  After a total of 225 minutes in 23 games as a Knick over a season and change, Morris is officially gone without much of an effort to retain him on the Knicks' part.

As reported by RealGM:

The Atlanta Hawks have signed free agent center Randolph Morris to a contract, it was announced today by General Manager Rick Sund. Per team policy, terms of the agreement were not disclosed. The AJC reported that it would be a two-year deal.

Perhaps Mike Woodson will be able to make more of the former Kentucky Wildcat than Thomas did.

At 6-foot-10 and 266 pounds, Morris no doubt has plenty of size, and the fact remains that observers never really got all that much of a chance to see what he had to offer in his limited time playing in New York.  It appears that he has some issues with finesse and touch around the rim, but the guy has some nice footwork and the potential to be a good defensive player.  Losing a bit of weight and increasing some quickness might not kill him, but he could make something out of the skill set and physique he currently has.

Let's hope he at least gets more of a chance at some run in Hotlanta.
