The Portland Trail Blazers and free agent shooting guard Anthony Morrow have agreed to a one-year, non-guaranteed deal, agent Wallace Prather told Basketball Insiders. The Vertical was first to report the agreement.

Morrow, a career 42 percent shooter from beyond the arc, will compete with Archie Goodwin, Isaiah Briscoe, and C.J. Wilcox for the final roster spot with the Trail Blazers.

The addition of Morrow gives Portland 18 players heading into training camp.

Wilcox signed a two-way contract with the Trail Blazers. Briscoe and Goodwin were recently signed to training camp deals, as first reported by ESPN.

Several teams expressed interest in Morrow, including the Minnesota Timberwolves, Milwaukee Bucks, New Orleans Pelicans, Chicago Bulls and others.

For Morrow, Portland offers an opportunity to compete for a roster spot on a potential playoff team. Portland ranked sixth in 3-pointers made per game (10.4) and seventh in 3-point percentage per game (37.4) in the league last season.

Morrow can potentially replace Allen Crabbe’s shooting ability. Crabbe was traded to the Brooklyn Nets earlier this summer.

Cavaliers guard Kevin Porter Jr. is expected to be traded or released following an outburst Friday in the Cavs locker room, The Athletic has learned from several sources with direct knowledge of the events.

Porter, 20, who has not played this season due to personal issues, grew angry when he entered the locker room and realized the team gave his old locker to Taurean Prince, who was acquired in a blockbuster trade Wednesday.

Sources said Porter, whose locker was moved to the wall where the younger, end-of-bench players reside, began yelling and at one point threw food.
