High school career

Terence Morris played his high school basketball for Governor Thomas Johnson High School in Frederick, Maryland, leading the TJ Patriots to the Maryland Class 3A state title as a senior in 1997. He played under former TJ Patriots coach Tom Dickman, who until recently was the record holder for wins by a public school coach in Maryland with 592 wins in 29 seasons.

College career

A 6 ft 9½ in (2.07 m)[1] forward from the University of Maryland, College Park, Morris was hailed as one of the best prospects in all of college basketball after his sophomore season in 1998-99. But while the consensus of opinion was that he would have been a Top-5 pick in the NBA Draft had he left school after that year, Morris instead opted to return to Maryland for his junior and senior seasons, and his draft stock dropped after two less successful campaigns.

Professional career

NBA

Morris was eventually selected by the Atlanta Hawks with the 33rd pick of the 2001 NBA Draft, and his draft rights were immediately traded to the Houston Rockets, with whom he played two seasons (2001-2003). He then spent the 2003-04 season in the NBDL with the Columbus Riverdragons (now known as the Austin Toros), and signed with the Los Angeles Clippers in September, 2004, but was waived before the season started. He signed with the Orlando Magic in September, 2005. He earned a roster spot for the remainder of the season, but was again waived in February, 2006.

Europe

After being waived by the Los Angeles Clippers in 2004, he decided to move to Europe and signed with Apollon Patras of the Greek League. Morris began the 2006-07 season unaffiliated to a team, but in December 2006, he signed with the Israeli League club Hapoel Jerusalem until the end of the season. With Hapoel he won an Israeli State Cup. On June 13, 2007, he signed with the Euroleague club Maccabi Tel Aviv.[2]

On May 3, 2008, Morris won a place in the 2007-08 All-Euroleague First team as a result of his play and the fact that his team reached the Euroleague final. He then transferred to the Russian Super League club CSKA Moscow[3] and he reached another Euroleague competition final in the 2008-09 season. In 2009, he joined the Spanish ACB League club FC Barcelona.[4]
