    Magic Sign Ken Johnson, Terence Morris


    September 28, 2005

    Orlando, FL – The Orlando Magic have signed free agents Ken Johnson and Terence Morris, President/CEO Bob Vander Weide announced today. Per team policy, terms of the deals are not disclosed.

    Johnson (6’11”, 240, 2/1/78) appeared in 34 games last season with Bourg en Bresse in France, averaging 11.2 ppg., 5.2 rpg. and 2.1 blkpg. Originally selected by Miami in the second round (49th overall) of the 2001 NBA Draft, Johnson played in 16 games with the Heat during the 2002-03 season, averaging 2.0 ppg. and 2.0 rpg. He has also played professionally with Huntsville of the D-League, as well as in Italy, France and the CBA.

    Johnson spent four seasons at Ohio State University. He finished his collegiate career as the fourth all-time shot blocker in NCAA history with 444, which also ranks as the best all-time in Big Ten and Ohio State history. Johnson also holds the top three single-season blocked shot totals in school history. He was named First Team All-Big Ten following his senior season (2000-01), after averaging 12.5 ppg., 7.3 rpg. and 4.0 blkpg., and was named Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year for the second straight season.

    Morris (6’9”, 221, 1/11/79) was originally selected by Atlanta in the second round (34th overall) of the 2001 NBA Draft. He has played in 117 career NBA regular season games with Houston, averaging 3.7 ppg. and 2.9 rpg. in 14.9 minpg.

    Morris spent four seasons at the University of Maryland. He earned Honorable Mention All-America recognition by The Associated Press in each of his final three seasons at Maryland, averaging 12.7 ppg. and 6.8 rpg. in 136 career games with the Terrapins. Morris left Maryland ranked second all-time in games played and blocked shots, fourth in rebounds, and eighth in points, steals and three-pointers. He was named to the All-ACC Third Team as a senior (2000-01), Second Team as a junior (1999-2000) and First Team as a sophomore (1998-99), becoming the fourth sophomore in school history to earn the honor. As a senior, Morris helped Maryland to its first Final Four appearance in school history.


    Orlando opens training camp on October 4 at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville. The Magic’s complete schedule is available through their official web site: orlandomagic.com.

    One of the few "should have left college early" cases in NBA history. He was a 1st round lock after his junior year at Maryland...

    Wow, 1st team All-ACC as a soph, then drops to 2nd team All-ACC as a Jr and finally 3rd team All-ACC as a Senior. I see a pattern there.

    I'd almost forgotten about him. What was his issue again besides the fact that we gave up a 1st rounder for him? He couldnt shoot? Play the game of basketball?

    He seemed like he had the potential to develop into an okay role player when he was with us. I was sort of sad to see him go.

    I remember FREDTERP and two or three other people being all over Terrence Morris like the legions of Boki fans. I can't believe we traded a 1st round pick for that jackass who couldn't shoot the 3 in college let alone the NBA.
