Brooklyn Nets Are Signing NBA Champion Markieff Morris

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium, Markieff Morris has signed with the Brooklyn Nets.

The Miami Heat were the 2020 NBA Champion's team during the previous year.

Although the Boston Celtics swept them in the first round of the NBA Playoffs last year, most people feel that if they stay healthy, they will be considered a contender for the 2023 NBA Championship.

Their squad for the next season seems to have become even better as of Tuesday.

Markieff Morris, the 2020 NBA Champion, has been signed by the Nets, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium.

Charania: "Free agent Markieff Morris has agreed to a one-year deal with the Brooklyn Nets, pending physical exam, sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium."

Charania: "An addition who brings production and leadership as an 11-year NBA veteran. Morris was part of the 2020 Lakers championship team and now is set to join Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and Ben Simmons in Brooklyn. He is expected to undergo a physical with the team this week."

Morris played for the Miami Heat past season, appearing in 17 games while averaging 7.6 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 1.4 assists.

The Heat advanced all the way to the Eastern Conference Finals as the top seed in that conference (they lost to the Celtics in Game 7).
