Trading Morris to someone and taking no salary back is doable...Maybe, not much cap room out there currently.
I don't think its a priority though, if it was they'd have needed to salary dump faster. I think the team will keep Morris as a depth piece given their intention to contend this year.
Not much cap room, no, but there are also a few trade exceptions he’d fit into. Depending where the final numbers are, moving Yabusele could also be sufficient. A 4-year, $46 million deal could start at $10.3 million.
I don’t know why people are so quick to dump Morris just to stay below the tax line, he’s the type of player that can make a difference in the playoffs. The type that can score 20 off the bench in a Finals game to steal one.
If we can stretch Nader and move Yabu to stay under the tax, that’s definitely the way to go imo. I like Yabu and he was the what, 16th pick? But he’s buried in the depth chart and is still years away at best from being a regular contributor.
