The young lefty is a solid scorer, averaging 15.2 points last season in time split between the Washington Wizards and the Phoenix Suns.

On Tuesday, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Marc J. Spears reported that Morris was reconsidering his deal with the Spurs and thinking about signing with the Knicks instead.

Forward Marcus Morris is reconsidering the two-year, $20 million deal he committed to with the Spurs and may sign with NY instead, according to a report from ESPN, which cites unidentified league sources. The Knicks have offered him a one-year, $15 million contract, according to Yahoo Sports.

The Spurs have started reaching out to other free-agents wings in case Morris decides to join the Knicks, sources said.

Weak law enforcement has made Nepal notorious for sexual predators, with several arrests and convictions in recent years. His lawyer says they plan to appeal the ruling, because Dalglish was wrongly convicted.

"If Morris reneges on his commitment to San Antonio, it would be a tough blow for the team, which turned its signing of DeMarre Carroll into a sign-and-trade deal in order to make its mid-level exception available for Morris", Luke Adams of HoopsRumors noted. He has only made about $27 million over the course of his career (yes, that sounds ridiculous from a normal perspective, but National Basketball Association contracts aren't normal), and a $5 million bump in one year is noteworthy, especially since Morris had a player option on his deal with the Spurs.

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

Morris is 6-foot-9 and turns 30 in September.

Morris averaged 13.9 points and 6.1 rebounds over 75 games a year ago for the Boston Celtics while shooting 44.7 percent from the floor.
