Marcus, Markieff Morris Sign With Roc Nation Sports

Marcus Morris and Markieff Morris have new representation, according a tweet from Roc Nation Sports welcoming both players to the agency.

The Morris twins were previously represented by Rich Paul of Klutch Sports, but Paul and Marcus parted ways this summer after Marcus reneged on a contract agreement with the Spurs and opted to sign with the Knicks instead. Paul reportedly urged Marcus not to back out of that tentative deal with San Antonio.

Markieff, who signed with the Pistons this summer, didn’t have as tumultuous a free agency experience as his brother, but it’s not surprising that he has elected to move on from Paul as well. The Morris twins have often operated as a unit throughout their NBA careers, having initially signed with Klutch Sports together during the summer of 2018.

Both brothers could be back on the free agent market next summer. Marcus’ $15MM deal with New York is just a one-year pact, so he’ll definitely become an unrestricted free agent. Markieff’s future is less certain, since his Pistons contract features a second-year player option worth $3.36MM. He could turn it down to reach the open market, or opt in and remain with Detroit.

    Why would you go against the advise of your agent, or rather why to have an agent if you ain’t gonna listen to him & do whatever you want? SMH! Totally puzzling!

      I think it’s probably because he made more money ignoring his agents advice. Just a guess.

        Also, it’s an overrated story but Pops keeps getting quotes every other day saying how he’s still pissed.

    I’m sure they’ll rescind the contract in a couple of days. Class act.
