Hold the phone, folks, Marcus Morris might not be a Spur just yet.
The free agent standout, who originally agreed to a two-year, $20 million deal with the San Antonio Spurs, is reportedly considering backing out of the agreement in order to join the New York Knicks, following the reworking of the Reggie Bullock deal.
NBA free agency never fails to disappoint. There's drama even after players reach agreements with teams!
If he were to join the Knicks, it would certainly put a band-aid on the wound that's been this incredibly underwhelming offseason, but would add...yet another power forward to an overflowing cluster of 'em.
Morris was a key scoring option in recent years with the Boston Celtics. In his two seasons with the team, he averaged 13.8 points per game while shooting 43.9% from the field.
Should he back out, it would be a decent blow to the Spurs. Morris would have fit nicely in San Antonio as part of what's shaping up to be a solid roster of battlers.
On the other side of things, if he were to depart for New York, he could serve as a mentor for the plethora of young talent that makes up the Knicks.
This is definitely a situation worth keeping an eye on.
