Forward Marcus Morris — Unrestricted

The more I think about it, the more I love the idea of Marcus Morris on the Bulls. The way this team is shaping up under head coach Jim Boylen, I think Morris would be the perfect type of player to add. Boylen has to love Morris’ physical, unapologetic style of play and instilling a little bit of that into the rest of the team would be a great thing.

Coming to Chicago, though, Morris would have to be fine with coming off the bench. With Boston, Morris was a starter the majority of his two years there. But, even though he’d come off the bench in Chicago, his playing time wouldn’t dip too much. He’d essentially step into the role left by Bobby Portis last year.

Last season, Morris averaged 13.9 points and 6.1 rebounds per game. One part of his game that may go overlooked at times is his ability to knock down the outside shot. The last two years, his three-point percentage has hovered around 37 percent, and he’s a solid 36 percent for his career.

His salary for 2018-2019 was a mere $5 million, and I think that would be quite the bargain for the Bulls, should they reach out and inquire on his services. Morris would bring an edge to the team that is much-needed at the moment.
