Markieff Morris said he is determined to be traded by the Phoenix Suns.
“One thing for sure, I am not going to be there,” Morris said Tuesday.
"If you want to put that out there, you can put that out. I don’t give a [freak]. I am not going to be there at all. That’s just what it is."
Morris signed a four-year, $32 million extension in 2014. The Suns traded Marcus Morris this offseason and could suspend Markieff if he refuses to play.
“I’ve got to show up. No question.” said Markieff Morris, who is scheduled to make $8 million this season. “You can’t do that. I will be a professional. Don’t get me wrong.
“But it won’t get that far. … I’m going to be out before then, should be."
