Free agent forward Markieff Morris has agreed to a deal with the Oklahoma City Thunder, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.
The Thunder (37-19, third place in the West) represent what Morris believes is his best fit right now, and he’s slated to play significant role in frontcourt. Morris and his agent, Rich Paul, sorted through offers this week and had positive dialogue with teams.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) February 14, 2019
Morris was waived by the New Orleans Pelicans last week after they acquired him in a trade with the Washington Wizards on Feb. 7 (Feb. 8, PHL time).
The 29-year-old forward has been sidelined since Dec. 28 (Dec. 29, PHL time) with a neck injury. He averaged 11.5 points and 5.1 rebounds over 34 games with the Wizards before the injury.
The Thunder (37-19) are currently the No. 3 seed in the Western Conference.
