The Brooklyn Nets have actually accepted sign totally free representative forward Markieff Morris to a one-year offer, according to Shams Charania. Morris invested last season with the Miami Heat, however missed out on most of the project after suffering whiplash in an on-court occurrence with Denver Nuggets star Nikola Jokic. Morris was fined for the occurrence, however Jokic was suspended for a video game. Morris returned for restricted action after a four-month lack in March, however played less than 4 overall playoff minutes.

The Nets have actually put a focus on including prominent forwards this offseason. They traded a first-round choice to the Utah Jazz for Royce O’Neale early on and after that included previous Indiana Pacers wing T.J. Warren on a minimum agreement in totally free firm. With Morris can be found in and the mix of Kevin Durant and Ben Simmons still on the lineup, the Nets must have lots of wings to toss at challengers this season.

Yet it’s uncertain simply how substantial a function Morris will have the ability to bet the Nets this season. He turns 33 in September and has actually not been a full-time starter considering that 2018. 

His irregular 3-point shooting likewise makes him an undecided fit with Simmons, as Morris has actually made approximately 34 percent of his appearances from deep in his profession.

Still, as affordable advantage swings go, the Nets might have done even worse. If there’s any basketball left in Morris, the Nets are wagering that they can discover it at training school. If not? They are so deep on the wings that the expense here is still more than low sufficient to validate the danger.
