The San Antonio Spurs have pulled their offer for forward Marcus Morris and instead are planning to sign free agent Trey Lyles to a two-year deal, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

After having a career year with the Denver Nuggets in 2017-18, averaging 9.9 points on 38.1% shooting from three, the 6’10” Lyles had a down year last season, averaging 8.5 points on 25.5% three-point shooting. Hopefully a change in scenery will do him some good.

After agreeing to a two-year, $20 million deal with the Spurs, Morris failed to show up for his physical after receiving a one-year, $15 million offer from the New York Knicks. The Spurs had already traded Davis Bertans in a three-team trade to make room for him.

Goodbye to Marcus, and welcome, Trey!
