But with the deal still unsigned, Morris is reportedly considering an offer from the Knicks, who would create the necessary salary cap room by redoing Bullock's deal. But his agreement was just a verbal one (as all free-agent deals are during the moratorium period), and he's now considering signing a one-year, $15 million offer with the Knicks.

On Tuesday, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Marc J. Spears reported that Morris was reconsidering his deal with the Spurs and thinking about signing with the Knicks instead. The Spurs defeat the Knicks 120-89.

Free agent forward Marcus Morris may not be headed to San Antonio after all. Woj's report on the matter mentioned something about Bullock's fitness, indicating perhaps that something may have been discovered in his physical.

The allure of getting three-fourths of the two-year salary offered by the Spurs in just half the time, with a chance to land a similar deal next summer, is likely tantalizing despite the well-known dysfunction of the NY franchise.

Morris played for the Boston Celtics in 2018-19.

The Spurs' reported signing of Marcus Morris was going to give them an extremely deep wing rotation after they struggled in that area of their roster last season, but now they could miss out on Morris and lose an important piece in Bertans while continuing to sit on an unused mid-level exception.

Detroit traded him to the Los Angeles Lakers for Svi Myhailuk and a second round pick.

Morris is 6-foot-9 and turns 30 in September.

Bullock's medical issue in unclear.

The Knicks have been active in free agency even after missing on the top names such as Kevin Durant, Kawhi Leonard and Kyrie Irving.
