Report: Suns trade Markieff Morris to Wizards
The Phoenix Suns have traded forward Markieff Morris to the Washington Wizards, reports The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowksi and Shams Charania.
Morris, now in his fifth season, was drafted No. 13 overall by the Suns in 2011. He asked for a trade from the Suns last summer, and had clashed with fired-coach Jeff Hornacek and the organization during the season.
Morris is averaging 11. 6 points and 5.2 rebounds per game so far this season. He has averaged 11.4 points and 5.4 rebounds in just over 25 minutes per game in his career.
The Wizards are in 10th place in the Eastern Conference at 23–28.
