The Los Angeles Clippers offered a three-year, $41 million deal to Marcus Morris in free agency.
The Clippers were also set to pay Morris 50 percent of his salary on Oct. 1 as well.
But Morris sought a two-year, $40 million deal but the Clippers couldn't offer that deal while preserving enough cap space to sign Kawhi Leonard. The Clippers moved on and acquired Maurice Harkless in a four-team trade.
A rumor that Rich Paul never told Morris about the offer from the Clippers was denied by a team source. Morris and Paul parted ways when the contract with the Spurs was reneged on.
