Marcus Morris Bets On Himself

Marcus Morris turned down a three-year, $41 million deal with the Los Angeles Clippers, according to The Athletic’s Mike Vorkunov.


While the ninth-year power forward turned down the best deal out of the contracts he has accepted ‑- Morris accepted a two-year, $20 million dollar contract with the San Antonio Spurs but reneged on that for a one-year, $15 million deal with the New York Knicks — there was a reason why he did such a thing.


“It had nothing to do with me playing here (L.A.),” Morris said to Vorkuknov.

“Personally, as a player, I felt as though I was worth more. I felt as though my time in the NBA, with production I had throughout the years, I felt I was worth more than what they offered. That was just my opinion. As a player that’s what I was standing on.”


Averaging 19.1 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists on the early season, Morris’ decision seems to be a slam dunk.


“I just bet on myself,” he said. “I came with the Knicks, I’d seen a great opportunity, I’d seen a great group of guys, and I wanted to bet on myself on an opportunity where I can showcase what I really can do and I thought that New York would be the perfect place for me to come.”
