Trey Lyles agrees to two-year deal with San Antonio

Trey Lyles agrees to two-year deal with San Antonio

According to a report from ESPN's National Basketball Association 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.

The move certainly makes sense for Morris, who now will earn more in the 2019-20 campaign than what he would have had he signed the aforementioned San Antonio offer. As of a few days later, he was said to be reconsidering the deal in order to potentially sign with the Knicks, who may have been offering more money.

San Antonio was originally out of cap space not long into free agency but came into extra funds after forward Marcus Morris reneged on a two-year, $20 million agreement.

Lyles was very effective for the Nuggets last season, posting 8.5 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists in just over 17 minutes per game.

It remains to be seen how it all plays out, but a Thursday report from Ian Begley, of SNY.tv, indicated that the Knicks now believe that obtaining Morris is "a likely scenario".

Footage and photos posted by the SPA showed thousands of people demonstrating in the capital and its sister city of Omdurman. A military leader is to head the council for the first 21 months, followed by a civilian leader for the next 18.

The Knicks are now filled with a roster of seemingly head coach David Fizdale's type of players he generally prefers since taking the job a year ago. Wojnarowski reports the Knicks and Bullock have mutual interest in reaching an agreement with new terms.

The veteran forward recently told The Athletic the decision to join the Knicks was the best one for his family and was by no means a knock on the Spurs. After failing to land alleged main targets Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant, the Gotham City-based squad is shaping up to be an entirely different and competitive team heading into the 2019-20 National Basketball Association season.

Morris instead agreed to a deal with the New York Knicks. "The (salary cap) space was a byproduct of that".

The Knicks also selected former Duke star RJ Barrett with the No. 3 pick in the 2019 draft.
