Knicks trading Marcus Morris to Clippers in deal involving Moe Harkless

The Los Angeles Lakers have reportedly been engaged in serious discussions with the New York Knicks, along with their hallway rivals the Los Angeles Clippers, regarding forward Marcus Morris.

The Knicks will acquire Moe Harkless and a 2020 first round pick from the Clippers.

The Knicks had wanted young shooting guard Landry Shamet but one proposed offer was 2019 draft choices, Mifondu Kabengele and Tarance Mann, and the Clippers first-round pick - which will be in the 20's.

David Aldridge of The Athletic reports the Clippers will not keep Thomas.

The Lakers also had talks with the Knicks about Morris, sources told ESPN's Ramona Shelburne. Morris was averaging a career-high 19.6 points on 44% 3-point shooting for the Knicks this season. He has started 38 of the 50 games he has appeared in with the Clippers. Not only will Los Angeles land Marcus Morris but Isaiah Thomas as well.

Morris will see a reduced role with the Clippers, moving from a focal point of the Knicks offense to sharing the ball with Kawhi Leonard, Paul George and Lou Williams.

Thomas averaged 12.2 in points while playing 23.1 minutes per game in Washington.
