    Marcus Morris led the Knicks in scoring with 21 points and added six rebounds, a steal, a block and three treys vs. Wizards on Friday.

    Morris had the second most attempts behind RJ Barrett and played 30 minutes, Kevin Knox not playing this game. Morris and Knox are likely to jockey for minutes at small foward all season and make it difficult for both to consistently have standard-league value.

    Marcus Morris was ejected after scoring 17 points to go with seven rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers in 19 minutes on Monday.

    Justin Anderson was playing regular-season defense on Morris, and apparently he would prefer preseason defense right now. Morris swung an elbow and then bonked Anderson on the head with the ball, earning his early shower. As far as the stat line, it was great for Morris. He started along side Mitchell Robinson and Julius Randle, so there's a chance he gets enough minutes to be worth starting in fantasy once more. Just beware of the glut of free agent forwards on the Knicks and of David Fizdale's rotations.

    The Knicks will start Elfrid Payton, R.J. Barrett, Marcus Morris, Julius Randle and Mitchell Robinson in Monday's preseason opener.

    Payton is starting for the injured Dennis Smith Jr. (back) but it's Morris that is the real surprise here. Starting roles may not mean much under David Fizdale's rule but it's notable that Morris is getting first crack over a presumed core piece in Kevin Knox. The rotation figures to be a mess but earning a starting spot, even if it's at a position that doesn't suit him best, will vastly improve Morris' chances of delivering late-round fantasy value. He's still not a recommended target but that could change if he turns in a great preseason.

    Marcus Morris stated that he didn't expect another offer after he verbally agreed to the Spurs' two-year, $20 million contract.

    We've seen players renege a contract offer before, so this isn't unprecedented, but it's still not a good look for the Knicks and Morris. He took more money and will join a weaker free agency class in 2020, but he joins an insanely crowded Knicks frontcourt which will now have to find playing time for Morris, Bobby Portis, Julius Randle, Taj Gibson and Mitchell Robinson.

    The Knicks have announced the signings of Marcus Morris and Reggie Bullock.

    Morris is on a one-year, $15 million deal while Bullock is coming in on a two-year deal worth less than $4.7 million annually, with a second season that isn't fully guaranteed. While both players began the offseason as potential standard-league targets, there's not much to see given the sudden depth of the Knicks roster. Morris will be one of five players who should mostly be playing power forward, while Bullock will slot into a busy backcourt and is already expected to miss at least a month of the season. New York's rotations are going to be a mess and we'd steer clear.

    Marcus Morris is planning on signing a one-year, $15 million deal with the Knicks.

    Morris backed out of a two-year, $20 million deal with San Antonio and is blatantly chasing the bigger payday, not that there's anything wrong with that. It's not great news for any fantasy appeal that Morris might've had, however, as he is now battling for minutes at the forward spots with Julius Randle, Kevin Knox, Bobby Portis and Taj Gibson. It's going to be a mess for fantasy owners, and outside of Randle and Portis there might not be anyone worth looking at for 12-team purposes.

    The Spurs have pulled their two-year, $20 million contract offer to Marcus Morris, per Adrian Wojnarowski.

    The team has instead reached an agreement with Trey Lyles. Morris was met with a surprisingly cool free agent market and has been rumored to have a one-year, $15 million offer on the table from the Knicks. The change in San Antonio should help out Rudy Gay and DeMarre Carroll.

    Marcus Morris is re-considering signing his two-year, $20 million agreement with the Spurs and is now looking at a deal with the Knicks after the Reggie Bullock deal may fall through.

    Whoa, that escalated quickly. It was reported earlier in the hour that the Knicks and Bullock were re-working their initial agreement after the Knicks had medical concerns about Bullock's ability to play a full season. It seems like the additional money left over from that deal will give new life into stealing Morris right out from under the Spurs. The Knicks reportedly have a one-year, $15 million offer on the table for Morris. There are sure to be more updates on this development. Stay tuned.

    Davis Bertans has been traded to the Wizards as a part of a three team trade between the Spurs, Wizards and Nets.

    Bertans was traded so that the Spurs could open up space to sign Marcus Morris and the Wizards aren't contending next season so they lose nothing by acquiring him. He's not much more than a shooter and should still be undrafted next season.

    According to Shams Charania of the Athletic, the Spurs and Marcus Morris have agreed on a two-year, $20 million deal.

    Morris will be an excellent pickup for the Spurs as an above average scorer and he's no slouch on the defensive end. They weren't a very deep team so Morris will also bring depth to their roster and with the rest of the West rapidly improving, the Spurs needed to make a move. As for fantasy, Morris will still be worth owning in leagues but it'll be important to see how the rest of the Spurs' roster shakes out.

    Andrew Greif reports that the Clippers have reached out to the reps of both Marcus Morris and Patrick Beverley.

    Morris makes sense for the Clippers due to his hard-nosed, no-nonsense desire to win – something that's aligned with the culture that the Clippers want to establish. Beverley is already a hot commodity right now and the Clippers are just doing their due diligence and keeping their options open, should they fail to land any big-name free agents.

    Marcus Morris is entering unrestricted free agency and will have keen interest from teams such as the Knicks, Kings, Lakers, Clippers and Bulls expected to be in pursuit after the free agent dominos fall.

    Morris is coming off arguably his best all-around season, averaging 13.9 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game. The Celtics would also like to bring the versatile forward back, but they have many pieces to figure out first, namely Kyrie Irving. At 29, Morris will most likely look to cash out in what could be his last big free agent contract.

    Marcus Morris double-doubled in Wedneday's Game 5 loss to the Bucks, finishing with 14 points, 10 rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes of action.

    Brad Stevens mixed up his lineup to start the game, relegating Morris to the bench in favor of Aron Baynes. He quickly reversed course on this decision, however, starting Morris in the second half. He looked like the only Celtic who still cared for stretches of this one, and though he had his ups and downs this season, his tenacity and willingness to play hard will be sorely needed next year for a Celtics team who struggled with both of those qualities.
