The Spurs begin to move: they take Morris and Carroll

In just two hours those of San Antonio have carried out their first two movements. Marcus Morris was one of the most desired agents of those who remained available.


The San Antonio Spurs have joined late to the signing party that has become this free agency. This past night they made the first two and one of them was to take one of the best players that were available. Marcus Morris changes Boston for Texas and signs with the Spurs for two years and 20 million dollars.

With this acquisition the Texans get several things in a single pack. They take a versatile four, capable of scoring in the post but also from the line of three (37.5% last season) and with an intensity and a defensive capacity that suffered the Popovich.

The other player who arrives San Antonio is DeMarre Carroll, in this case through a transfer to three bands. Signature for three years and 21 million, but in return the Spurs send Davis Bertans to the Wizards. The third team in question was Carroll's current, the Brooklyn Nets, who took the rights of Nemanja Dangubic (belonged to the Spurs) and Aaron White (via Washington) .

The Spurs achieved another year will come playoffs despite being only the 19th best defense of the League. With the signings of Morris and Carroll, the renewal of Rudy Gay and the return of Dejounte Murray, who spent the entire course in the dry dock, it is to be expected that Gregg Popovich will count on his squad with a defensive level superior to that shown so far. .
