The Spurs rescind offer to Marcus Morris, will sign Trey Lyles instead

Morris has reneged and is signing with the Knicks.

The San Antonio Spurs have pulled their offer for forward Marcus Morris and instead are planning to sign free agent Trey Lyles to a two-year deal, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

After having a career year with the Denver Nuggets in 2017-18, averaging 9.9 points on 38.1% shooting from three, the 6’10” Lyles had a down year last season, averaging 8.5 points on 25.5% three-point shooting. Hopefully a change in scenery will do him some good.

After agreeing to a two-year, $20 million deal with the Spurs, Morris failed to show up for his physical after receiving a one-year, $15 million offer from the New York Knicks. The Spurs had already traded Davis Bertans in a three-team trade to make room for him.

Goodbye to Marcus, and welcome, Trey!
