Morrow agrees to offer sheet with Nets

Restricted free-agent guard Anthony Morrow(notes) has reached agreement on a three-year, $12 million offer sheet with the New Jersey Nets, league sources told Yahoo! Sports on Friday night.

The Golden State Warriors aren’t expected to match the offer, a league source said. Morrow has to take a physical Monday before he can sign the offer sheet. The Warriors will then have seven days to decide to match.

After missing out on several higher-profile free agents, including Carlos Boozer(notes) (Chicago) and Tyrus Thomas(notes) (Charlotte) in the past two days, the Nets made an aggressive pitch for Morrow, a sharpshooting and athletic guard. Morrow, 24, averaged 13 points for Golden State last season. Undrafted out of Georgia Tech in 2008, Morrow has made an impressive rise with the Warriors the past two seasons.

With the franchise in financial flux because of an impending sale and having just committed $80 million to forward David Lee(notes), the Warriors aren’t expected to spend to keep Morrow.
