 Morris reportedly reconsidering deal with Spurs

Marcus Morris reportedly agreed to a two-year, $20 million deal with the San Antonio Spurs on July 6. It seems he may be having second thoughts on that, though, and could be headed back to the Eastern Conference.

Per Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports and Mark J. Spears and Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Morris is considering a move to the New York Knicks, who are offering him a one-year, $15 million deal, Haynes reports. To make room for the potential Morris signing, the Spurs dealt Davis Bertans to the Washington Wizards to free up salary-cap room.

Morris spent last the past two seasons with the Boston Celtics, serving as a standout reserve for them. In the 2018-19 season, Morris averaged 13.9 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game. 

In other news related to the Knicks, they are reworking the two-year, $21 million deal both sides agreed to with guard Reggie Bullock, Wojnarowski reports. Bullock's agent, David Bauman, told ESPN the Knicks and his client are re-evaluating Bullock's fitness to play a full season in 2019-20.
