Anthony Jarrad Morrow (born September 27, 1985 in Charlotte, North Carolina), nicknamed A-Mo, is an American professional basketball player for the New Jersey Nets of the National Basketball Association (NBA). The 6 ft 5 in (1.96 m), 210 lb (95 kg; 15 st) shooting guard went undrafted out of the Georgia Institute of Technology in the 2008 NBA Draft, but was later signed by the Golden State Warriors and is now considered one of the best pure shooters in the NBA.

On July 25, 2008, Morrow was signed by the Golden State Warriors after going undrafted in the 2008 NBA Draft. In his first NBA start, he scored 37 points on 15-for-20 shooting against the Los Angeles Clippers—the most points ever scored in a game by an undrafted player in his rookie season—and grabbed 11 rebounds. Morrow finished the 2008-09 season as the first rookie and first Warrior ever to lead the league in three-point field goal shooting, going 86-for-184 for a .467 percentage.

In the 2009 NBA Summer League, Morrow scored 47 points for the Warriors in a game against the New Orleans Hornets - setting the record for the most points scored by an individual in a game at the NBA Summer League.
