Knicks free agency rumors: Marcus Morris reconsidering deal with Spurs, may sign with New York instead

The Knicks’ interesting offseason continues.

Forward Marcus Morris is reconsidering the two-year, $20 million deal he committed to with the Spurs and may sign with New York instead, according to a report from ESPN, which cites unidentified league sources.

The Knicks are expected to have more cap space than originally anticipated because they’re reworking the two-year, $21 million contract they agreed to with wing Reggie Bullock, according to the report. Bullock’s “fitness to play a full season in 2019-20” is in question, but both sides are “motivated to find an agreement with new terms,” the report says.

Morris averaged 13.9 points and 6.1 rebounds while shooting 37.5% from 3-point range for the Celtics last season. The Knicks have offered him a one-year, $15 million contract, according to Yahoo Sports.

The Knicks, meanwhile, were reportedly targeting Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant this summer, but both stars ended up signing with their cross-town rivals, the Nets.

New York then went on to ink Wayne Ellington, Elfrid Payton, Julius Randle, Bobby Portis and Taj Gibson to contracts.

“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. “Our plan was to organically build this team through teamwork, drafting well, getting high-character guys that want to compete. The (salary cap) space was a byproduct of that.”

The Knicks also selected former Duke star RJ Barrett with the No. 3 pick in the 2019 draft.
