Markieff Morris Wants Out of Phoenix

The Morris twins signed contract extensions with the Phoenix Suns prior to last season, with the duo actually deciding between them how $52 million over four years would be split between the two. But after a rather tumultuous campaign that saw several key players traded, the Suns traded Marcus Morris to the Detroit Pistons as Phoenix tried to make a run at LaMarcus Aldridge.

That run at Aldridge failed and now Markieff Morris wants out:

That report was followed up later in the day by a tweet from Markieff himself:

That certainly seems to confirm the report that he wants out. Morris is expected to be a key player for the Suns this upcoming season, but if he’s going to sulk, it may be worth cutting ties if a good deal can be found.

Adding to this slippery situation is the fact that the Morris twins are currently in some legal trouble, as they were charged with assault in April. The brothers have pleaded not guilty and their defense attorneys recently asked to have their case returned to a grand jury because they say prosecutors falsely presented information that led to an indictment, according to Anthony Marroquin of The Arizona Republic.

Markieff averaged 15.3 points and 6.2 rebounds in 31.5 minutes per game last season, all career highs.
