The New Orleans Pelicans have emerged as a suitor with interest in acquiring disgruntled Phoenix Suns forward Markieff Morris, league sources told Yahoo Sports. The Suns and Pelicans have had preliminary contact about a potential trade, but Morris' pending felony aggravated assault charges remain a possible obstacle for virtually every team interested in making a deal, sources told Yahoo. Phoenix general manager Ryan McDonough has been cautious in his approach to fulfilling Morris' longstanding trade demand, but coach Jeff Hornacek's benching of Morris on Sunday night could be the beginning of the end for the forward in Phoenix.
