As Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reported, Morris initially agreed to a two-year, $20 million deal with the Spurs. He has only made about $27 million over the course of his career (yes, that sounds ridiculous from a normal perspective, but National Basketball Association contracts aren't normal), and a $5 million bump in one year is noteworthy, especially since Morris had a player option on his deal with the Spurs.

Both parties are amicable to renegotiating Bullock's contract and that has made bringing on Mook a possibility.

However, they reportedly reworked Carroll's contract to make it a three-year, $21 million deal which allowed them to open up the mid-level exception again after clearing cap space by trading Davis Bertans to Washington.

Roger Federer sera au rendez-vous des huitièmes
L'homme aux 18 titres du Grand Chelem a d'emblée annoncé la couleur avec un break dès le premier jeu. A l'issue de son match du jour, l'Espagnol s'est exprimé sur le choc à venir face à Roger Federer .

Adding Morris also makes this group more competitive, after a disastrous 17-65 season.

On Tuesday, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Marc J. Spears reported that Morris was reconsidering his deal with the Spurs and thinking about signing with the Knicks instead.

Ultimately, the prospect of getting back on the market in what will be a rather barren 2020 free agent class and with a bit more cash in hand could very well end up shuffling his (and two teams') plans this summer.

Wimbledon: Ash Barty's run ends as unseeded Alision Riske reaches quarterfinals
A former world number one, Pliskova lost her round of 16 match against countrywoman, Karolina Muchova 6-4, 5-7, 11-13. Barty, though, was philosophical in defeat, reflecting instead on the most magnificent two months of her career.

Morris would definitely bolster the Knicks frontcourt. His agent and the team are "re-evaluating Bullock's fitness to play a full season in 2019-20".

It's a tough break for the Knicks, who were primed for big things in free agency before Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving took their talents to Brooklyn. It remains to be seen how this situation plays out, though. Per Young, the Spurs are in danger of losing Morris. The Spurs defeat the Knicks 120-89. If Morris did choose to head to NY, he'd have the chance to test the free agency market again next offseason.
