Adam Morrison is headed home.
After an abbreviated NBA career, which included two NBA titles with the Lakers (2009 and 2010), Morrison will join the staff of Gonzaga Bulldogs Coach Mark Few.
"He'll be a student assistant," said Few to CBSSports.com. "It'll be great. The players really respect him."
Morrison played three years at Gonzaga, averaging 28.1 points a game as a junior. He'll be taking classes while coaching on the side.
The 6-foot-8 forward struggled in the NBA after a tremendous college career. He was drafted by the Charlotte Bobcats in 2006 with the third overall pick but in 2007 suffered a torn ACL (knee) in a preseason game against the Lakers.
Morrison averaged 2.4 points a game with the Lakers through the 2009/10 season. He made two playoff appearances, scoring eight points in a total of eight minutes.
Despite attempts in recent years to crack rosters in Washington and Portland, Morrison hasn't played a regular-season NBA game since leaving the Lakers in 2010.
