The San Antonio Spurs have reportedly pulled their offer for forward Marcus Morris.
According to a report from ESPN’s NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski, the Spurs pulled their offer from Morris after he put the offer on hold to flirt with the possibility of joining the New York Knicks.
Morris agreed to a two-year deal with the Spurs initially, but then reneged on the deal for an offer from the Knicks.
New York reportedly offered Morris a one-year deal worth $15 million.
After pulling the offer from Morris, the Spurs reportedly signed former Denver Nuggets forward Trey Lyles.

Morris is expected to sign the one-year deal offered by the Knicks. The forward finished off a strong season with the Celtics where he averaged 13.9 points and 6.1 rebounds per contest.
San Antonio reportedly signed Lyles to a two-year contract. The 6-foot-10 forward averaged 8.5 points and 3.8 rebounds per game during the 2018-19 season.
The former college basketball star came off the bench for the Nuggets last season. He averaged just under 18 minutes per game.
He’ll likely fill in a reserve spot for the Spurs and adds depth to the forward position.
San Antonio squeaked into the playoffs last season and now faces a packed Western Conference with a familiar face – Kawhi Leonard – back in the West.
