The New York Knicks signed Marcus Morris this offseason to a one-year contract.
They signed him and about two other quality power forwards, Bobby Portis and Julius Randle. They likely won’t allow these forwards to play the five either because the team will be wanting Mitchell Robinson to secure max minutes to develop his skill set.
That said, when the Knicks are 18-35 nearing the trade deadline, they will be looking for potential suitors for these valuable players. Morris is certainly one that could be on the move.
Morris, 29, has averaged double figures in the last five consecutive seasons. The 6-foot-9 forward also neared his career his in three-point percentage last season at 37.5% and secured a career-high in threes per game at 1.9.
Also known as a top-tier defender, Morris would thrive alongside Curry, Thompson, and Russell. However, the team would likely have to dump one of their four stars given Morris’ $15 million salary.
Overall, he’d be a great addition, but some major changes would have to happen in the Bay to get him there.
