On Thursday, The Athletic's Shams Charania reported that Morris had reached agreement with the Knicks on a one-year, $15 million contract, which represents 75 percent of what he could have earned in two seasons with the Spurs. But following a reworking of Reggie Bullock's new Knicks contract, Morris reportedly has made a decision to spurn the Spurs and take a one-year, $15 million contract in NY.

The Knicks are adding Morris to their free agent haul that also includes Julius Randle, Bobby Portis, Taj Gibson, Elfrid Payton and Wayne Ellington. "This is no knock on the Spurs".

The Spurs pulled their offer to Morris and agreed to a deal with free agent Trey Lyles, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports.

Both of them are nominal power forwards that are able to stretch the floor and have some switchability on defense, but Morris was certainly the more talented option of the two. That said, there is only one ball and two guys who want to dominate it. Mike D'Antoni, in a lame-duck year, has some work to do to get everyone to sacrifice a little. San Antonio is obviously hoping to see improvement from Lyles.

The 14th overall puck of the 2011 NBA Draft out of Kansas by the Houston Rockets, Morris has career marks of 11.5 points, 4.6 bards and 1.5 assists in 26.5 minutes in 545 games (292 starts), along with a shooting line of 43.1/36.0/74.7 in eight NBA seasons.

NY is still optimistic it will add Bullock, according to a report from SNY.

The Knicks will use the last of their cap space to bring Morris aboard but will still have a room exception to offer Reggie Bullock.

The former college basketball star came off the bench for the Nuggets last season.
