Marcus Morris spurning Spurs for deal with Knicks

NY has signed Marcus Morris to a one-year, $15 million contract, according to a report from The Athletic, which cites unidentified league sources.

Then, Morris and his representation threw a wrench into the whole process by reconsidering their agreement after the Knicks reconstructed Reggie Bullock's contract to create the cap space to give Morris a richer offer than San Antonio was able to make using the mid-level exception. However, an issue that arose during his physical exam reportedly caused both sides to reconsider, although Bullock may still join NY at a lower figure.

Marcus Morris reportedly was set to sign with the San Antonio Spurs, but turns out the former Boston Celtics forward will be staying in the Eastern Conference.

Lyles averaged 8.5 points and 3.8 rebounds in 17.5 minutes per game for the Nuggets last season. He added that "this is no knock on the Spurs". The Spurs will reportedly opt instead for free-agent forward Trey Lyles.

NY reportedly values Morris's veteran leadership and talent, though, and at a one-year deal, he does not represent a major investment. "I have respect for them", Morris told Charania. Among the new arrivals were three players most commonly thought of as power forwards: Julius Randle, Bobby Portis and Taj Gibson.

The soon-to-be 30-year-old Morris signed a four-year, $20 million contract with Phoenix in a unique deal where he and his twin brother Markieff split $52 million however they saw fit. Lyles, 23, is younger and bigger (6-foot-10) than Morris, but certainly not as accomplished in his career.
