Marcus Morris doesn’t think he’ll struggle fitting in with Clippers
The Los Angeles Clippers didn’t get to try out how Marcus Morris would fit into their system as he was declared unavailable during their blowout loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves. However, the man himself is looking forward to the opportunity of playing for a championship contender in the Sixers.
The press talked to him about his thoughts on his impact on the Western Conference giant, and he wasn’t shy about his excitement to be on a contender. He thinks he’ll fit in well with the roster they’ve got.
“I’m excited to get started but you going to see how well I fit. It’s going to be easy for me. I’m a high-IQ guy, can play any position on the court and I think it’s going to be very beneficial for both sides.”
Morris is coming off his most productive season yet. During his time with the Knicks, the 30-year-old forward averaged 19.6 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 1.4 assists on 44%/44%/82% shooting splits. He was one of the players to watch for an otherwise disappointing Knicks roster. While his numbers will definitely take a dive with the Clippers, he’s still going to be a key component for the team’s success.
They will definitely need his production after the whipping the Clips experienced at the hands of the Timberwolves. Even without D-Angelo Russell on the team, the Wolves outscored them, 142-115. Karl-Anthony Towns was unstoppable with his 22 points, 13 rebounds, and 9 assists, but the rest of the roster carried their weight. Malik Beasley and Jordan McLaughlin scored 23 and 24 points respectively, and a total of seven players scored in double digits.
Marcus Morris will be an important boon to a Clippers team looking to make the Finals, and they will need his services as soon as possible.
