Despite the Suns seemingly wanting to work things out, it seems inevitable that Markieff Morris will be playing elsewhere this season. He hasn’t backed off on his trade demand. The four-year, $32MM extension that Morris signed last fall kicks in for this coming season. The contract might be an obstacle for a trade, but a lack of communication between Morris and the team indicates that the relationship will be extremely difficult to repair.
With Morris’ days in Phoenix apparently numbered, there are a few teams that come to mind as potential new homes. Personally, I think the Magic are a good fit, given Orlando’s lack of talent at the power forward position. Morris would be an intriguing fit because he would further allow Tobias Harris to play small forward.
There are other teams that make sense, of course. Thus, our topic of the day: Where do you think the best landing spot for Markieff Morris is?
