Spurs are “pissed” at Marcus Morris for backing out of agreement

First Kawhi, now this!

The San Antonio Spurs have now been screwed over for a second consecutive offseason.

In case you haven’t heard, free agent forward Marcus Morris initially agreed to a two-year, $20 million contract with the Spurs earlier this month, but backed out of that shortly after to ink a one-year, $15 million deal with the New York Knicks.

According to Frank Isola of The Athletic, another NBA GM believes the Spurs are extremely “pissed” at what he did to them in free agency.

To add salt to the wound, they apparently traded away forward Davis Bertans to the Washington Wizards in order to make room for Morris on the roster.

The team has yet to publicly comment on the situation.

Wizards ink Bradley Beal to two-year max contract extension

The trade rumours can be put to rest, because Bradley Beal will be staying in the nation’s capital for a little while longer.

The Washington Wizards announced Thursday that they have signed star guard Bradley Beal to a two-year, $72 million max contract extension that includes a player option for the 2022/2023 season. The deal also has a 15% trade kicker, and a no-trade clause during the regular season.

The 26-year old still has two years remaining on his current contract, so the total value of his two deals combined is close to $130 million over a span of four years.

Beal, who was selected third overall in the 2012 NBA Draft, has averaged 19.8 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 3.1 assists in seven seasons and 488 regular season games.

He averaged a career-high 25.6 points last season on a 47.5 field goal percentage.

He suffered the injury midway through the Bucks’ 133-99 preseason win over the Utah Jazz on Wednesday. After the game, Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer that the injury is not too serious.

“It feels like it’s not that severe,” said Budenholzer after the game.

“but I’m sure Troy (Flanagan, the team’s director of performance) and those guys will give me an update. … Just talking to Bled (it seemed positive) – I don’t know if you can trust Bled – Troy will be the truth-teller”

The 29-year old, who is entering the first season of a lucrative four-year, $70 million contract, averaged 15.9 points, 5.5 assists and 4.6 rebounds in 78 games in 2018/19.
