After initially coming to an agreement with free agent Marcus Morris, the San Antonio Spurs have reopened their agreement with Morris and will now sign former Denver Nuggets forward Trey Lyles, according to ESPN NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski.

Morris reached agreement with the Spurs on Saturday for a 2-year, $20 million contract with a player option for the second year.

Morris agreed to a two-year deal with the Spurs initially, but then reneged on the deal for an offer from the Knicks. The swingman whose uncertain health led to a series of last-minute deal changes over the course of the past week.

"I had to make this decision based on the best situation for me and my family", Morris, 29, told The Athletic.

The San Antonio Spurs may be losing Marcus Morris to the New York Knicks, but they have found a new use for the money instead.

NY believes that "obtaining Marcus Morris as a free agent" is a likely scenario, according to a report from SNY, which cites unidentified league sources.

The soon-to-be 30-year-old Morris signed a four-year, $20 million contract with Phoenix in a unique deal where he and his twin brother Markieff split $52 million however they saw fit. "This is no knock on the Spurs". After spending two seasons with the Boston Celtics off the bench, Morris beefs up a formidable frontline that already is showing promise. That said, there is only one ball and two guys who want to dominate it. Mike D'Antoni, in a lame-duck year, has some work to do to get everyone to sacrifice a little.

Lyles has split his first four National Basketball Association seasons with the Nuggets and Utah Jazz.

It remains to be seen how it all plays out, but a Thursday report from Ian Begley, of SNY.tv, indicated that the Knicks now believe that obtaining Morris is "a likely scenario".
