San Antonio Spurs sign Trey Lyles and pull offer from Marcus Morris

The San Antonio Spurs thought they picked up the best free agent on the market when they agreed to terms on a two-year, $20 million deal with Marcus Morris.

They had to conduct some salary cap gymnastics to get that deal done by reworking DeMarre Carroll’s contract to a three-year, $21 million pact and sending Davis Bertans to Washington as part of a three-team sign-and-trade.

Then, Morris and his representation threw a wrench into the whole process by reconsidering their agreement after the Knicks reconstructed Reggie Bullock’s contract to create the cap space to give Morris a richer offer than San Antonio was able to make using the mid-level exception.
