Markieff Morris: ‘I want to be here’ with Suns

As he promised, Markieff Morris arrived in Phoenix for Suns training camp.

He spent the offseason sulking after the Suns traded his twin brother, Marcus Morris. He practically dared Phoenix to trade him, even getting fined by the NBA for his comments.

But – surprisingly – his public tone has changed considerably.

Gerald Bourguet of Valley of the Suns:

Maybe Tyson Chandler reached him. Maybe Jeff Hornacek was right.

Or maybe Morris still expects the Suns to deal him and is just playing nice for now to impress potential trade partners.

But if Morris has truly gotten over his discontent, this could be good for his career. He fits well on the Suns, who have used him pretty well. The grass isn’t always greener on the other side.
