    Marcus Morris and agent Rich Paul separate after controversial free agency

    New Knick Marcus Morris and his agent Rich Paul have agreed to part ways, sources told the Daily News. The contentious separation comes after a controversial free agency in which Morris, 29, signed a one-year, $15 million deal with the Knicks because he reneged on an agreement with the Spurs for two years, $20 million.

    The late offer from the Knicks arrived because of unexpected cap space. One of their other free agent targets, Reggie Bullock, had an issue with his physical and the Knicks are reworking his contract for a lesser salary.

    Paul has emerged as an NBA lightning-rod with his own Sports Illustrated cover story and high-profile clients such as LeBron James, Anthony Davis, John Wall and Ben Simmons. He pushed for Davis’ trade from New Orleans to the Lakers — a saga that essentially sabotaged last season for both teams — and recently secured a max deal for Simmons in Philly. Still, he has never had a player in New York, and it will remain that way after the separation with Morris.


    Paul took on Morris as a client while the forward was outplaying a four-year, $20 million deal he signed under agent Leon Rose.

    Morris’ decision to default on his agreement with the Spurs came after the team cleared cap space by trading sharpshooter Davis Bertans. San Antonio then signed power forward Trey Lyles, who is another Paul client.


    After being rejected by Morris, the Clippers used that space to acquire Moe Harkless and absorb his $11.5 million salary via trade.

    Paul’s agency, Klutch Sports, and another one of its clients, Nerlens Noel, went through a rough patch this offseason but ultimately decided to retain the partnership, according to sources. It had reached the point that Noel — before he signed a one-year minimum contract with the Thunder — had told the team to no longer negotiate Klutch.


    Noel had backed out of a deal forged on the first day of free agency with OKC, only to quickly reevaluate and re-sign.

    What was the reason he told him to turn it down:patrice:

    I'm assuming he figured he could get him a better deal?

    It’s not as simple as source saying he turned it down. If true we don’t know the reason why he would. Has to be something on the other side for him to turn it down. If it wasn’t he should’ve fired Paul right then and there and took the deal.

    he wouldve been a good addition to the clippers, which would be a bad thing for the lebron/lakers as they compete for socal supremacy.

    Damn he would have been nice as the third wing off the bench behind Kwahi and PG.

    Plus the massive loss money

    Rich Paul is a horrible agent unless you’re Lebron
    :hhh:

    He would've played the 4 next to Kawhi and PG :wow:Still 41 million for 3 years is less than 15 mill on the Knicks especially if he out performs.
