This quickly emerged as the likely outcome once it had been reported that Morris was going to be bought out by Detroit. The Toronto Raptors also harbored some interest.
The veteran forward is averaging 11 points per game while shooting a career-high 39.7 percent from three-point range. He’ll be a depth option for the Lakers, but he has a chance to be a valuable one, especially if he can keep shooting at the rate he has been with the Pistons.
