The trade that is sending Marcus Morris from the New York Knicks to the Clippers is actually a three-team deal involving the Washington Wizards.
He will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason after signing a one-year, $15 million contract with the Knicks. And Kuzma, according to the latest intel on the trade talks, was a bridge too far for L.A.
Similarly, a different report indicated that the Knicks had already engaged the Lakers in exploratory conversations regarding Kuzma. He's averaging 2.9 points. However, the Clippers appear closer than ever to acquiring Morris to give them another body to throw at LeBron James in the playoffs. Harkless started 38 of the 50 games he played for the Clippers this season, but played a supporting role, averaging 5.5 points, four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 22.8 minutes per game.
