Detroit is reportedly trying its hand at having a Morris twin on its roster, again.
Markieff Morris and the Pistons have agreed to a deal, reports Shams Charania of The Athletic and Jordan Schultz of ESPN. Morris began last season with the Washington Wizards, but was dealt to the New Orleans Pelicans at the trade deadline. After being bought out by New Orleans, he signed with the Oklahoma City Thunder for the rest of the season.

He should be a solid addition to the Pistons' bench, as he averaged 9.4 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.4 assists last season. Markieff Morris' twin brother, Marcus, played for the Pistons from 2015-17 before being traded to the Boston Celtics in the summer of 2017.
