Even though the Brooklyn Nets front office struggled over this offseason, the franchise signed Markieff Morris and apparently really value his contribution to the team.
According to Marc Stein, Joe Tsai made a personal pitch to the veteran forward. Stein wrote “it should be noted that the Nets considered the Morris signing as sufficiently significant that I’m told Nets owner Joe Tsai made a personal recruiting pitch to the 33-year-old. The Nets were desperate to add a veteran who could command the respect of stars Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving and believe Morris has the gravitas to speak up when necessary like he did in Los Angeles alongside James and Davis.”
Morris joins the team in the hope to bring players from the roster together. He is a veteran offensive talent with tenacity on the defensive side of the ball.
Morris will definitely make an impact on the Nets roster as the team tries to make a playoff push.
