San Antonio Spurs sign Trey Lyles and pull offer from Marcus Morris

Marcus Morris

Morris evidently had a change of heart when the New York Knicks made him an offer of a $15-million, one-year contract after an unexpected re-negotiation with recent Knicks veteran signee Reggie Bullock, who was determined to have a significant risk of missing most of next season.

Such appeared to be the case Thursday with Marcus Morris, who opted for a reported one-year, $15 million offer from NY over the two years and $20 million to which he'd agreed with San Antonio. "This is no knock on the Spurs".

"I had to make this decision based on the best situation for me and my family", Marcus Morris said. The exciting aspect of Morris' agreement is that he passed on a two-year deal with the always playoff-bound San Antonio Spurs.

Lyles was very effective for the Nuggets last season, posting 8.5 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists in just over 17 minutes per game.

Trout crushed a 454-foot, two-run homer to left-centre on the first pitch he saw from Leake. And whether we notice or not, we kind of do the same stuff every single day.

Morris has also played for the Phoenix Suns and the Detroit Pistons in addition to the Rockets and the Celtics.

They had to conduct some salary cap gymnastics to get that deal done by reworking DeMarre Carroll's contract to a three-year, $21 million pact and sending Davis Bertans to Washington as part of a three-team sign-and-trade. After spending two seasons with the Boston Celtics off the bench, Morris beefs up a formidable frontline that already is showing promise.

What Morris did not respect was his verbal commitment to San Antonio, arrived at early in the free agency period. And with LaMarcus Aldridge's ability to play both the four and the center position, Lyles should have an opportunity to play more minutes for a team that still hopes to be competitive in the Western Conference next season.
