Free agent forward Trey Lyles has agreed on a two-year contract with the San Antonio Spurs, according to multiple reports. San Antonio had an opening for the 23-year-old after forward Marcus Morris backed out on a commitment to join the Spurs on a two-year, $20 million contact.

Morris instead agreed to a deal with the New York Knicks. The Athletic reported it was a one-year, $15 million agreement. "I had to make this decision based on the best situation for me and my family," Morris told The Athletic. "This is no knock on the Spurs. I have respect for them."

Lyles became an unrestricted free agent earlier this week when the Denver Nuggets rescinded their qualifying offer. Lyles averaged 8.5 points and 3.8 rebounds in 64 games (two starts) for the Nuggets last season.

Overall, he has career averages of 7.6 points and 3.9 rebounds in 288 games (41 starts). Lyles played his first two seasons with the Utah Jazz and his last two with the Nuggets. Morris spent the past two seasons with the Boston Celtics and averaged 13.9 points and 6.1 rebounds in 75 games (53 starts) in the 2018-19 season.

The 29-year-old Morris has career averages of 11.5 points and 4.6 rebounds in 545 games (292 starts) over eight NBA seasons.
