Earlier this week it was reported that veteran wing Markieff Morris and the Brooklyn Nets front office had mutual interest and now reports show that the two parties have connected in hopes of coming to a deal.
NBA insider Marc Stein discussed the interest in his newsletter and revealed that the franchise and Morris has entered talks with the forward. Stein reported, “The Nets have moved into advanced discussions with free agent forward Markieff Morris as Brooklyn seeks to bolster its frontcourt, league sources say.”
While Stein’s report is promising he also discusses another Eastern Conference team that has considered pursuing the hustling veteran. Stein reports that the Philadelphia 76ers have “explored the feasibility” of signing Morris.
Considering the fact that the Nets utilized most of the offseason repairing and rebuilding relationship between their superstars and their front office, Brooklyn desperately needs to add quality, proven role players. Morris fits those requirements perfectly.
Update: The Nets have moved into advanced discussions with free agent forward Markieff Morris as Brooklyn seeks to bolster its frontcourt, league sources say.
