Marcus Morris and his agent Rich Paul agreed to mutually part ways following a weird turn of events that saw Morris sign with the New York Knicks, and it sounds like it may have been the agent who no longer wanted to work with the player.

Bullock's new deal is worth $8.7 million over two seasons (as opposed to the initial offer which was reported to be worth $21 million). The Kinston, N.C. -native averaged 11.3 points on 37.7-percent shooting from downtown to go along with 2.7 rebounds and 2.0 assists over 29.8 minutes in 63 games (60 starts).

Chris Paul Expected to Start Season With Thunder After Trade Talks Stall
The Thunder believe they might find more success when the trade landscape changes after December 15, according to the report. A 34-year-old All-Star scheduled to make $38.5 million next season does not fit in with those rebuilding plans.

After missing out on Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving in free agency, the Knicks signed Bullock, along with Julius Randle, Bobby Portis, Taj Gibson, Wayne Ellington, Elfrid Payton and Marcus Morris. He has a career average of 6.8 points over 272 games (119 starts) in six National Basketball Association seasons.

The Knicks ended up having unexpected salary cap space when free agent Reggie Bullock had an issue with his physical. Bullock's agent, David Bauman, told Ian Begley of SNY that NY was "fantastic through this process".
