NBA Rumors: Lakers & Clippers Reportedly Interested In Trading For Pistons Forward Markieff Morris

Markieff Morris of the Detroit Pistons looks on during a pregame warmup.

Amid rumors suggesting that his twin brother, New York Knicks forward Marcus Morris, might be among the players getting moved ahead of next month’s trade deadline, a new report is suggesting that Detroit Pistons forward Markieff Morris is attracting attention from the NBA’s two Los Angeles-based teams, the Lakers and the Clippers.

On Saturday, Heavy‘s Sean Deveney cited unnamed league sources, noting that the Pistons, who are tied for 10th in the Eastern Conference with a 14-26 record, are reportedly planning to make most of their veterans available for trade in the lead-up to the February 6 deadline. These individuals include the 30-year-old Morris, who appears to have piqued the interest of the Clippers and the Lakers, both of which have been rumored in recent weeks to be on the lookout for experienced role players who could help improve their chances of representing the Western Conference in this year’s Finals.
