Spurs still confident they’ll finalize deal with Marcus Morris
Jul 13 2019
The contract was for two-years, $20 million, and seemed to be a done deal. That could open for the door for NY to sign Morris, which is something he's reportedly interested in.
It's also worth noting that the Knicks appear to be in the process of re-working the deal which was agreed to with Reggie Bullock.
The cap space for a potential Morris deal came about after Bullock's health made his recently-agreed-to two-year, $21 million deal less attractive to NY after it was determined he may miss much of the 2018-19 National Basketball Association season.
A general view of the game between the New York Knicks and the San Antonio Spurs during the third quarter at Madison Square Garden on November 10, 2013 in New York City. But with the deal still unsigned, Morris is reportedly considering an offer from the Knicks, who would create the necessary salary cap room by redoing Bullock's deal.
Marcus Morris reportedly agreed to join the San Antonio Spurs in National Basketball Association free agency, but the former Boston Celtics forward might take a different path after an unexpected development with the New York Knicks. Word is, there's a 1-year, $15M deal on the table from #Knicks ... He shot 44.7% from the field, 37.5% on threes, and 84.4% on free throws.
Bullock spent the majority of the 2018-19 season with the Detroit Pistons. He was originally drafted by the Rockets in the first round (No. 14 overall) of the 2011 NBA Draft out of the University of Kansas.
However, he's joining a very crowded frontcourt. On Thursday, the Knicks officially announced the signings of other free agents Julius Randle, Wayne Ellington, Bobby Portis, Elfird Payton and Taj Gibson, indicating a possible hold-up in the Bullock contract.
