Watch: Marcus Morris ejected from preseason game with ruthless plays
Marcus Morris was ejected from the New York Knicks’ first preseason game after two ruthless plays against Washington Wizards forward Justin Anderson.
Morris was being defended by Anderson and clearly annoyed. Morris’ response was to viciously swing his elbows at Anderson. Then Morris smashed Anderson on the head with the ball.

An ejection is just the start; the league needs to suspend Morris. That is a garbage, non-basketball play. You can’t just do that to someone who’s defending you. There’s no excuse for it whatsoever. Gregg Popovich was right when he described Morris as “unprofessional.”
Morris is in his first season with the Knicks after signing a one-year, $15 million deal with them. He had reneged on a deal with the Spurs to join the Knicks.
