New York Knicks forward Marcus Morris was traded to the Los Angeles Clippers.
Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium reported that the Clippers have agreed to a trade for Marcus Morris. The Clippers will send Moe Harkless and his expiring $11.5 million to the Knicks.
According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Wizards were involved in the trade. “The Clippers, Knicks and Wizards have agreed to a three-team trade that will land Marcus Morris and Isaiah Thomas with the Clippers, league sources tell ESPN. Jerome Robinson will join the Wizards, Moe Harkless and a 2020 first-round pick to the Knicks.”
Contenders like the Clippers and Lakers were after Morris for a while but he didn’t want to leave New York.
“I love our team,” Morris told Mike Vorkunov of The Athletic when the trade rumors began. “I love our future. I just want to be a part of helping our young guys grow and grow out to be the great players they’re gonna be. That was the reason why I made the decision to come here, going back on the decisions I made, along with a lot of other things, but I’m here. I enjoy this organization. I enjoy the players they got here and I want to be here long-term.”
Marcus Morris was very productive for the Knicks this season. He was their best scorer with a career-high 19.6 points and he also averaged 5.4 rebounds and shot 44.2 percent from the field and a career-best 43.9 percent from 3-point range in 32.3 minutes over 43 games.
