Clippers Win Marcus Morris Sweepstakes, Acquire in Trade With Knicks for Assets

The Los Angeles Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers have been at odds and in a face-off with only hours left in the NBA trade deadline. And now, the Clippers have one-upped the Lake Show by trading with the New York Knicks for Marcus Morris.

L.A. is sending Mo Harkless and other assets for the Knicks forward, who they feel will help put them over the top and propel them to win a championship.

In the deal, the Clippers get Morris and Isaiah Thomas, the Knicks receive a 2020 first round pick and Harkless and Jerome Robinson will be headed to Washington with the Wizards as part of the 3-team deal.

Morris was set to be a free agent this next season, so the Knicks recoup assets for next season, while the Clippers get a player that boosts the team and is an alpha dog to play along Kawhi Leonard and Paul George. L.A. didn’t have to give up many young players as part of he trade.

Does this lock up the championship for the Clippers?
