The NBA Buyout Season is in full swing, and the Oklahoma City Thunder has jumped into the action as reports have surfaced that the franchise is signing veteran forward Markieff Morris.
Morris is a 10-year veteran who played 34 games with the Washington Wizards this season, starting 15 of them, before being trading him to New Orleans, who immediately waived him. This season Morris was averaging 11.5 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 1.8 assists in 26.0 minutes per game.
Morris will help the Thunder out at the power forward position, and he is also a decent three-point shooter, so he can help stretch the floor. He has not played since December 26th due to a neck injury, but he should be able to make his debut in an OKC uniform immediately following the NBA All-Star Break.
