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.

Restricted free-agent center Mason Plumlee has agreed to a three-year, $41 million deal to return to the Denver Nuggets, league sources told ESPN.

Agent Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports and Denver president of basketball operations Tim Connelly reached agreement on the deal late Sunday night, league sources said.

With the deal, Denver was able to avoid Plumlee signing a $4.6 million qualifying offer for the 2017-18 season — which would’ve allowed him to become an unrestricted free agent next summer.
