Spurs agree to 2-year deal with Trey Lyles

Spurs agree to 2-year deal with Trey Lyles

The Spurs had traded forward Davis Bertans in order to open up the midlevel exception so as to sign Morris to a two-year, $20 million deal.

NY believes that "obtaining Marcus Morris as a free agent" is a likely scenario, according to a report from SNY. In the wake of their decisive action, Mook signed the offer from the Knicks this afternoon. But, he was reportedly reconsidering that contract, leading San Antonio to withdraw the offer, according to ESPN. Furthermore, the prospect of potentially earning a similarly large short-term deal likely appealed to Morris, whose career earnings have been smaller than similarly talented peers.

The Knicks' salary-cap space was suddenly available because the team and free-agent forward Reggie Bullock are no longer executing a two-year, $21 million deal, and reworked the terms down to a lower financial commitment, league sources said.

It's been a rough offseason for the Knicks, but they've gained a valuable asset in Morris. "This is no knock on the Spurs".

Barcelona Sign Antoine Griezmann
The stats Griezmann amassed in five seasons with Atletico Madrid show just how important was to the team's cause. The 2018 FIFA World Cup victor , Griezmann , 28, scored 185 goals in 459 club appearances.

The Knicks think they'll be adding one more player to their roster.

Morris averaged 13.9 points and 6.1 rebounds last season with the Celtics. But, he's reportedly reconsidering signing that contract and may land with NY instead.

"Meanwhile, the woebegone Knicks have not made the playoffs in six straight seasons and look to be on the outside looking in again in 2019-20 after failing to land superstars Kawhi Leonard, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving".

"Our plan wasn't to create $70 million in room to go after free agents this summer", Knicks president Steve Mills told the Undefeated last month. He was selected No. 12 overall by the Jazz in the 2015 NBA Draft.
