Knicks, Marcus Morris have strong mutual interest in reaching free agency agreement this summer

From Ian Begley, who is having himself one heck of a debut season for

The Knicks are probably going to get plenty of calls from teams interested in Marcus Morris between now and next Thursday’s NBA trade deadline.

You would expect them to listen to any offers on Morris, because that’s what any team would do in their situation.

But it’s worth noting that at least one team in touch with the Knicks recently was left with the impression that Morris and New York have strong mutual interest in reaching an agreement in free agency this summer, per SNY sources.

There are also rumors that Mills and Perry might get fired, so it is perfectly Knicksy to have these guys not trade Morris, only for them to be fired.

But hey, Morris signed long term is worth those guys getting fired, I guess.

It’s all still quite stupid. But, well, that’s the Knicks for ya.
