Markieff Morris denies report Rich Paul told Marcus Morris not to sign with Clippers because of LeBron James
Markieff Morris is denying a report which claimed agent Rich Paul of Klutch Sports told his brother, Marcus Morris, not to sign with the Los Angeles Clippers because of LeBron James’ presence on the Los Angeles Lakers.
The New York Post reported Paul advised Marcus not to sign with the Clippers because he didn’t want his client to go up against his main client in LeBron.

Markieff Morris, who is also represented by Rich Paul, signed with the Detroit Pistons. He’s thoroughly enjoying reading the rumors surrounding his brother and Paul.
The Clippers and Lakers are going to have an intense rivalry in 2019-20 now that Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are on the Clippers. The battle of Los Angeles is going to feature LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Kawhi and George. It doesn’t get much better than that.
Marcus Morris originally agreed to a two-year, $20 million deal with the Spurs. He signed a one-year, $15 million contract with the Knicks after backing out of his agreement with San Antonio.
It’s unclear why Marcus and Paul parted ways, but according to Markieff, Paul never told Marcus not to sign with the Clippers.
