Chris Haynes of CSNNW.com reports that Portland Trail Blazers training camp invite Adam Morrison is considering retirement if he gets cut during camp.

"I'm going to finish school and start coaching (If he didn't make the Trail Blazers roster)...I did the Europe thing and it just wasn't for me," Morrison told CSNNW.com. "Not saying the (Europe) culture or anything like that, (or) the people, it just wasn't for me. So, yeah, if it doesn't work out, I'm willing to look myself in the mirror and say, 'I gave it a honest shot' and turn the page. Do something else."

Morrison is in camp on a non-guaranteed training camp contract.

The Blazers have 19 players in camp with 15 players on guaranteed contracts. Four players will need to be cut so that the Blazers can get down to the 15-man roster maximum.

On Monday, Blazers coach Terry Stotts gave this assessment of Morrison's chances of sticking with the team.

Adam Morrison, everybody up here in the Northwest knows him. He has a legitimate chance to make the roster. We'll go through camp and see what happens at the end of October. The other three guys are filling out our camp. We brought them here because they are talented young guys. The likelihood of them making the team right now would be difficult. We have a certain number of guaranteed contracts but there's also the possibility, since we have the Idaho Stampede now, there's a possibility that now they are in our camp, we have their rights -- except for Coby Karl, his rights are somewhere else. For Dallas [Lauderdale] and Demonte [Harper] they have a chance to get better for this month and possibly continue their career with Idaho.

Deteriorated him? Diabetes has nothing to do with his inability to play basketball. He was diagnosed at age 13, and destroying others, as one of the best players in the nation, while he was at Gonzaga.

Morrison just can't play defense...at all. He also doesn't have any athleticism, and he's strictly a shooter coming off the dribble. None of that is because of his diabetes (I should know), but because the talent level is five times better in the pros, and it's not for him.

In fact, Morrison is said to have his blood sugars under control now, and a few years ago, far better than he did when he was in high school...and is considered a pretty damn good diabetic, just as Jay Cutler is (and you should be, if you have the money to afford the best specialists and nutritionists).

I'm not that great of a diabetic, and I can still play ball without it interfering.
