Markieff Morris Cleared To Play, Receives Interest From Rockets, Lakers 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Feb 12, 2019 12:56 am

Markieff Morris has been cleared to play following a neck injury.


Morris has been sidelined since Dec. 26 after being diagnosed with transient cervical neurapraxia.


Morris has received interest from the Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Lakers.


Morris was traded by the Washington Wizards to the New Orleans Pelicans and then was waived.

He's a Klutch client. This would be a smart signing for the Lakers because it could help bring Marcus Morris to the Lakers over the summer as well on a potential discount.

If 46 year old Shaq and 55 year old Barkley even joked about a comeback, the Lakers rumour mill and every talking head out there would have the Lakers as the leader to sign them.

After the drama in Washington, I expect Markieff will choose a real contender and it may come down to a choice between Houston and Raps. With Tucker and Faried, there already is two players ahead of him for playing time. In TO, he slots in as first PF off the bench.

Chris Haynes suggests interest in TO is real.

If a dog shot a jump shot at halftime, folks would rumor the dog to the Lakers.

Yup, come win in Toronto! Make up with OG.

The Morris brothers next year, should sign on the same team and take a little less than market to have a trade clause that they have to be traded together for the duration of the contract.

Markieff morris is a Dollar-Value version of Anthony Davis

So if the Lakers sign Markieff .. and then sign his tein brother Marquis Morris off boston ...
Then you add up those 2 twins and they might be worth AD's value
