Leonard's delay in choosing a team is making other free agency decisions difficult

Leonard's delay in choosing a team is making other free agency decisions difficult Our wait for Kawhi Leonard‘s free-agent decision appears likely to extend until at least Saturday. According to Cris Carter of Fox Sports 1 (Twitter link), Leonard remains undecided and doesn’t plan to finalize or announce his decision today. Interestingly, Carter also adds that Leonard is expected to sign a long-term contract with whichever team he chooses. There had been some speculation that he might sign a one- or two-year deal in order to potentially line himself up for a larger maximum-salary contract in two years, when he has 10+ years of NBA experience. Carter suggests that’s not the plan.

Marcus Morrisdecision to join the Knicks after agreeing to an offer from the Spurs will add momentum to a push to shorten the summer moratorium, writes Tim Bontemps of ESPN.

Morris accepted a two-year, $20M offer from San Antonio on July 6, but changed his mind a few days later when the Knicks agreed to give him $15M for one season. New York had unexpected money available after renegotiating its deal with Reggie Bullock over health issues.

Bontemps points out that similar concerns arose last summer when Nemanja Bjelica and Yogi Ferrell backed out of respective deals with the Sixers and Mavericks when they got better offers from the Kings.

Although executives Bontemps spoke to at the Summer League were split in their opinions on these decisions, they are united in their dislike of the six-day moratorium, with one telling him: “It’s just too long.”

In the wake of his free-agent odyssey, Morris has decided to change agents, according to Stefan Bondy of The New York Daily News. Morris has parted ways with Rich Paul of Klutch Sports, who is arguably the league’s most powerful agent and helped steer Anthony Davis to the Lakers.

A source tells Bondy that Morris refused a $41M offer from the Clippers before agreeing to the deals with the Spurs and then the Knicks.
