According to Shams Chararnia of The Athletic, power forward Marcus Morris will sign a one-year, $15 million deal with the New York Knicks, despite having agreed to contract terms with the San Antonio Spurs.

“I had to make this decision based on the best situation for me and my family. This is no knock on the Spurs. I have respect for them,” Morris said.

Last season, the 29-year-old averaged 13.9 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game.
