Anthony Morrow has been invited to take part in the 3-point shooting contest, joining teammates Deron Williams, who will be a member of the Eastern Conference squad for the All-Star game, and rookie MarShon Brooks, who was selected to play in the rookie-sophomore game.
“I’m really excited, man — ecstatic,’’ Morrow said in a telephone interview this afternoon. “This morning my agent called me and told me they’re going to invite me. I’m really excited, and thankful for the opportunity.’’ After a slow start to the season, Morrow is hitting 42 percent from 3-point range.
