Marcus Morris agreed to a one-year, $15 million deal with the New York Knicks. This was after he backed out of his two-year, $20 million deal with the San Antonio Spurs. Nerlens Noel signed a one-year, $2.03 million contract to return to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
There were reports Marcus Morris was upset that his free agent market wasn’t more lucrative. He averaged 13.9 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists this past season with the Boston Celtics while shooting 44.7 percent from the field, 37.5 percent from beyond the arc and 84.4 percent from the free-throw line.
Rich Paul will be fine. He’s still got LeBron, AD, Simmons, Wall and Bledsoe. We’ll see who Morris and Noel hire as their next agents before the upcoming season starts.
