Marcus Morris plans to sign with Knicks after originally agreeing with Spurs

The report comes two days after Morris was re-considering his two-year, $20 million deal with the Spurs.

Morris is accepting a one-year, $15 million deal with the New York Knicks, whose offer had caused Morris to renege on his Spurs agreement, league sources said.

Beyond that, Morris also is putting himself at risk for future negotiations once he becomes a free agent again, which could be as soon as 2020 if he joins the Knicks. In the wake of their decisive action, Mook signed the offer from the Knicks this afternoon.

San Antonio reportedly signed Lyles to a two-year contract. Furthermore, the prospect of potentially earning a similarly large short-term deal likely appealed to Morris, whose career earnings have been smaller than similarly talented peers. "This is no knock on the Spurs".

The one-year contract allows Morris to enter a weaker free agent class next season, giving him a chance to negotiate a better, longer-term deal when teams may have more cap space.

But this franchise prioritizes culture above all else, and they simply couldn't add a player who was not totally committed to playing Spurs basketball.

NY is still optimistic it will add Bullock, according to a report from SNY. After failing to land alleged main targets Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant, the Gotham City-based squad is shaping up to be an entirely different and competitive team heading into the 2019-20 National Basketball Association season.

"Our plan wasn't to create $70 million in room to go after free agents this summer", Knicks president Steve Mills told the Undefeated last month.

While all the buzz had been about the Thunder trying to trade Westbrook to Miami - a place Westbrook was interested in - that was a complicated trade because Oklahoma City wanted to dump extra salary and Miami was up against the hard cap.

The former University of Kentucky Wildcat was a first round pick in the 2015 NBA Draft (12th overall) by the Utah Jazz.
