After agreeing to a two-year deal with the San Antonio Spurs, Marcus Morris is now reported to be considering reneging on the agreement in light of an offer from the New York Knicks. Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports has reported that the offer Morris received from the Knicks is a one-year contract worth an estimated $15M.

Morris featured prominently for the Boston Celtics last season, averaging 13.9 points and 6.1 rebounds per game as the Celtics amassed a record of 49-33 before being eliminated by the Milwaukee Bucks in the second round of the Playoffs.
If Marcus Morris does, in fact, choose to join the Knicks instead of the Spurs, he will be the latest of several Power Forward signings for the Knicks, including Julius Randle and former Arkansas Razorback standout Bobby Portis, as the Knicks once again did not feature as a high profile free agent destination.
