WASHINGTON -- Former lottery pick Adam Morrison has been waived by the Washington Wizards, less than a month after signing with the team.

The Wizards also have waived center Sean Marks, and Thursday's moves allow the team to cut its roster to 15 players.

Morrison averaged five points and two rebounds in five preseason games with Washington. He was drafted with the No. 3 overall pick by the Charlotte Bobcats in 2006 after starring in college at Gonzaga.

The 6-foot-8 forward has played in four NBA seasons, two with Charlotte and two with the Los Angeles Lakers, with career averages of 7.5 points and 2.1 rebounds.

Marks has played for five teams since entering the league in 1998. He didn't appear in any games for the Wizards this preseason.

I thought he would be a decent pro..was wrong I guess.I cant remember a top 3 pick ever not being resigned after a rookie contract,that didnt have a completely blown out knee or something. He cant even make the Wizards this year?

At least Kwame had some O.K years and played as a decent roll player,JJ Redick was in the same boat as Morrison and has turned it around in Orlando

Two rings just sitting on the bench seems like a good career to me.
Back to reality, he should go play some euro ball.
Oh there's a guy that goes to the same college as me that looks like him during his college years beard and all.

blazers should sign him he could of had a good career just nobody can play him right i think he could revive his college days i wouldnt call him a bust yet

played on the bobcats was hurt alot
sat on the lakers bench didnt play
wizards have no room on there team

i think blazers should pick him up he would do good in a half court offense instead of a full court press team he needs to have his feet planted to be effective and every time i seen him shoot it was a quick off the pass shot

Brilliant observation. The guy made more than $10 million in the past five years, but you're right, those rings are definitely getting pawned.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

I think the expectations far exceed his ability. However if he were in the right situation on a team like the Knicks where defense isn't even considered he could contribute 10-12 minutes and probably average 4 points and 2 rebounds. Occasionally he'd break out and score 12-15 points, but don't expect it every night. He's a 2 time champion, and he CHEERED his butt off for those rings, so he can always fall back as a Laker Girl.

He really never had a fair shot. Injured after a decent rookie year, than is traded to the best team in the NBA where he hardly saw the court. Under different circumstances he could have turned out to be a solid role player, now it's going to take a lot of work to make something of himself.

I wish him all the best.

Because of who he was picked ahead of, he's gotta be up there. Jordan has struck out in the draft year after year after year.

For the 345,122,498th time, Jordan is not the sole decision maker in Charlotte. Personnel moves are made by a committee of general manager Rod Higgins, head coach Larry Brown, and head of basketball operations, Michael Jordan.

It's a system of checks and balances, no one person gets their way every time.

The Lakers should sign him up and keep him on the bench for good luck. Otherwise, he may actually have to sell his rings to make a living.

One of the biggest busts of the decade. Darko and Kwame were busts, but they still had and still are having much better careers (I know, despite the championship caliber bench-warming).

If he's not #1 or #2 in busts of the decade, he should be top 3, IMO.

Haha, Wow. I remember this one fellow from back in my days in a collegiate setting (why, yes, I have been to college). While roaming the hallowed halls and smocking some recreational drugs, I came across a gentleman with his eyes fixated onto his computer screen. It appeared the finer arts such as calculus were perplexing him so. I could tell all he was thinking was “*****, get out of my way” (like sir Ludacris so eloquent put it haha indeed).

So with this in mind, I take my seat in his adjacent chair. Now, I assume you all know how you can put wallpapers onto ones computer. Well let me tell you, this chap had a wallpaper of this very Adam Morrison crying. Oh the laughs we had at his expense.

Gentlemen, he was crying! Crying of all things!

Then he showed me this great creation he had made in Photoshop of a tissue box and this photo. It was absolutely exquisite how he had made it look as though Mr. Morrison was in need of these tissues.

So, biggest disappointment in the history of this great sport? I would dare to say yes.

Kwame Brown was worse...

Pervis Ellison was worse...

Olowokandi was worse...

Bowie was worse...

LaRue Martin was worse....

Kent Benson was worse...

Dennis Hopson was worse...


Considering how weak the 06 draft class was, it's not suprising...

The three notables that were drafted after him were Roy, Gay, and Rondo...

Outside of those three, the entire draft was, essentially, a bust...
