LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Clippers landed Marcus Morris from the Knicks and Isaiah Thomas from the Wizards in exchange for Maurice Harkless going to New York and Jerome Robinson to Washington on Thursday.
Besides Harkless, the Clippers will send to New York a first-round pick in the June draft, a protected first-round swap option in 2021 and Detroit’s 2021 second-round pick. The Wizards sent the draft rights to Issuf Sanon to New York.
“Marcus is a player we’ve admired for a long time,” said Lawrence Frank, the Clippers’ president of basketball operations. “He is an established scorer, elite shooter, and imposing defender. We are excited to add his experience and toughness to our team.”
Morris averaged a career-high 19.7 points in 43 games for the Knicks this season. He also averaged 5.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists while shooting a career-high 44% from 3-point range.
The 30-year-old forward has also had stints with Houston, Phoenix, Detroit and Boston.
