NBA Trade Rumors: Timberwolves Inquire About Nets' Anthony Morrow, According To Report

The Minnesota Timberwolves have inquired with the New Jersey Nets about the availability of guard Anthony Morrow, according to Darren Wolfson of KSTP-TV in Minnesota. The Nets, however, have told Minnesota that they do not intend to move Morrow.

Originally undrafted out of Georgia Tech in 2008, Morrow latched on with the Golden State Warriors and spent his first two pro seasons there. As a rookie in 2008 - 2009, Morrow led the NBA in three-point shooting percentage at 47.8%, and he recently participated in the 2012 NBA Three Point Contest, which was won by Kevin Love.

Morrow, who has the second highest three point shooting percentage in NBA history, was traded before the 2010 - 2011 season by the Warriors to New Jersey for a future second round pick. He is averaging 13.0 points per game this season, and shooting 40.2% from beyond the arc.

The Timberwolves are shooting just 32.2% from three-point range this season, 23rd in the NBA.
