Marcus Morris told Shams Charania of The Athletic that he feels like he cleared the air between him and members of the San Antonio Spurs organization after spurning their offer to sign a one-year deal with the New York Knicks.
“The first thing that I did when I knew I would be going another direction, I called and made sure they knew. There was no shade. There’s no disrespect. I had great conversations afterward, and as long as I feel that I’m clear with them and gave them my truth, I feel good about moving forward," said Morris.
Morris also addressed firing agent Rich Paul, saying that there's no bad blood between the two.
Morris added that Paul wanted him to sign a three-year deal with the Clippers.
“All this stuff that (Paul) didn’t want me to go to the Clippers and didn’t want me to go against LeBron (James), that’s not true. He never told me not to take the deal. For as long as I’ve known Rich — and that’s still someone I have love for and that’s still my guy — he has been great in terms of advice. He told me he wanted me to take the Clippers deal."
