Anthony Jarrad Morrow (born September 27, 1985) is an American professional basketball player who currently plays for the New Orleans Pelicans of the National Basketball Association (NBA). The 6 ft 5 in (1.96 m), 210 lb (95 kg; 15 st) shooting guard played college basketball at the Georgia Institute of Technology. He went undrafted in the 2008 NBA draft but was later signed by the Golden State Warriors and is now considered one of the best pure shooters in the NBA.
In his first NBA start, he scored 37 points on 15-for-20 shooting against the Los Angeles Clippers—the most points ever scored in a game by an undrafted player in his rookie season—and grabbed 11 rebounds. Morrow finished the 2008–09 season as the first rookie and first Warrior ever to lead the league in three-point field goal shooting, going 86-for-184 for a .467 percentage.
Morrow re-joined the Warriors for the 2009 NBA Summer League, where he scored 47 points for the Warriors in a game against the New Orleans Hornets – setting the record for the most points scored by an individual in a game at the NBA Summer League.
On February 3, 2012, Morrow scored a career high 42 points in a loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves.
