Marcus Morris Sr.

The Clippers have a few veterans the Warriors could be looking into signing this offseason. One is Marcus Morris Sr. Another could be a player like Patrick Patterson, and they could potentially look into bringing in Montrezl Harrell on the trade exception.

As for Morris, he was averaging almost 20 points per game with the Knicks. Prior to the 2020 deadline, he was dealt to the Clippers, giving him a chance to contend. With the Clippers, he’s averaging just under ten points per game.

Morris is expected to be a solid second unit force for Los Angeles.

With the Warriors, he’d have the ability to join a team that’ll be in title contention and complete an ideal small-ball lineup. A gritty 6-foot-8, Morris was averaging 2.7 threes per game on 44% from deep with New York, one reason the Clippers may have wanted his presence.

Morris’ price tag is a big deal, signing with the Knicks for $15 million. The Warriors will want someone more impactful for the trade exception. However, there’s no denying his defense and shooting would help enhance Golden State’s second unit quite a bit.
