Clippers Acquire Marcus Morris

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.
