Earlier this summer, veteran power forward Marcus Morris agreed to a deal with the San Antonio Spurs. The contract was for two-years, $20 million, and seemed to be a done deal.

However, now things may change. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Morris may back out of the agreement and consider a deal with the New York Knicks. The Knicks may have some cap space now that they’re reworking their deal with free-agent acquisition Reggie Bullock.

According to Jabari Young of The Athletic, a deal is on the table for Morris from New York. The deal is reportedly worth $15 million through one year.

This past year for the Boston Celtics, Morris averaged 13.9 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 1.5 assists through 75 games. He did this all on 44.7% shooting from the field and 37.5% from behind the arc.

In addition to the Celtics, Morris previously played for the Houston Rockets, Phoenix Suns, and 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.

The 29-year-old veteran definitely could add depth to the Knicks roster, as well as be a mentor for the younger guys. An eight-year and four-team veteran, Morris could mentor the younger guys such as RJ Barrett, Ignas Brazdeikis, Frank Ntilikina, and Kevin Knox.

However, he’s joining a very crowded frontcourt. Bobby Portis, Taj Gibson, Julius Randle, and Kevin Knox should all see minutes at the four this year, Morris’ natural position.
