Two choices - the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The pain of regret hurts a whole lot more.

Washington’s Markieff Morris and Boston’s Marcus Morris have signed with agent Rich Paul of Klutch Sports Group. Both will enter free agency next summer.
— Shams Charania

If the Lakers strike out on landing a big time FA, I can definitely see the Morris brothers taking a below market to deal to play together (as they did with Phoenix), be in LA, and play with Lebron. It would also give the Lakers a team full of versatile and switchable defenders (James, Morris brothers, Ingram, Kuzma, Ball, etc.), all 6'6" to 6"10, and with the exception of Ball, all are respectable shooters.

They are doing exactly what they should be doing: taking fliers on high lottery picks hoping that one of them turns out.

Payton, Randle, and now Okafor could all be key cogs in their team. The Pelicans have no other way of increasing the talent on their team. They have no tradeable assets and no cap space.

Okafor fits really well next to Davis, and the Pelicans (outside of Davis and Holliday) hardly play defense anyway. I really like what they are doing.

New Orleans is one of a few teams that still have open roster spots available. The Pelicans have 12 guaranteed contracts with veteran Emeka Okafor on a non-guaranteed salary and wing DeAndre Liggins on a partial. Good opportunity for Jahlil Okafor to make the roster.

If Okafor can't look good next to Davis he's out of the League.

NO must not have much faith in Okafor making the team when they guaranteed only $50K.

i agree. but it is still more faith in okafor than most nba teams would seem to have right now. his career is really bottoming out.

Democracy begins with freedom from hunger, freedom from unemployment, freedom from fear, and freedom from hatred.

I think we're all missing the real news here: Emeka Okafor is still playing?!?  ;D

Interesting.  $50k is the largest guarantee you can get and still be eligible for a 2-way with a club.
