Anthony Morrow will participate in his first practice session with the Dallas Mavericks today, and will be in uniform for Sunday’s home game against the Los Angeles Lakers.

As the Mavs await his arrival, they do so knowing one key ingredient about Morrow’s game that could possibly help them reach the playoffs.

“He definitely can shoot the ball,’’ forward Dirk Nowitzki said. “He’s definitely one of the best spread guys in the league.

“I remember he had great shooting games against us before in Golden State. He can shoot on the move, he can spot up, so we’ll see once he gets here.’’

The Mavs traded Dahntay Jones to the Atlanta Hawks on Thursday for Morrow, who averaged 5.2 points in only 12.5 minutes per game for the Hawks this season.

“Morrow is a big-time shooter and I’m happy to have him and welcome to greet him in,’’ guard O.J. Mayo said. “I played with him in the [2009] rookie/sophomore game [during All-Star Weekend].

“He can help us. Anybody that can put that ball in the basket it’s always good.’’

Center Brandan Wright has a long history with Morrow which he was more than happy to share with the media on Friday. Wright’s final season with the Golden State Warriors (in the 2008-’09 campaign) just happened to be Morrow’s rookie season.

“He was in a perfect system down in Golden State — a team that shot a lot of threes,’’ Wright said. “We had a lot of guys banged up that year and he stepped in and did great.
