Philadelphia 76ers waive former Lakers Kwame Brown, Darius Morris
On Wednesday, the Philadelphia 76ers waived two former Lakers.
According to Yahoo Sports, the Sixers released Kwame Brown and Darius Morris.
Brown, a former No. 1 overall pick of the Washington Wizards, played 2 1/2 seasons with the Lakers before a blockbuster trade sent him to the Memphis Grizzlies for Pau Gasol.
The 6-foot-11 Brown didn’t make an appearance for the Sixers this season. Last year he played 22 games, averaging 1.9 points and 3.4 rebounds a night.
The Lakers drafted Morris with the 41st overall pick in 2011. After two seasons, the Lakers chose not to make Morris a qualifying offer, allowing him to leave as an unrestricted free agent.
Morris played 12 games for the Sixers, averaging 6.9 points and 2.6 assists on 43.3% shooting from the field and 41.7% from three-point range.
All things Lakers, all the time.
