Another Eastern Conference playoff hopeful that could look to add to their guard rotation is the Brooklyn Nets. The Nets have a slew of talented forwards but they are short on point guards who can set them up. The only point guards on their team are Spencer Dinwiddie and Ben Simmons.
Dinwiddie is not the best passer or playmaker for his teammates and could be better utilized as a shooting guard, while Simmons never plays. They could certainly look to add to their point guard depth.
Morris can provide stability and basketball intelligence to a team that has lacked it recently. The Nets have a lot of different players and contracts that they can offer to Washington. The Wizards might be most interested in Day’Ron Sharpe.
Sharpe is a big, strong, traditional center who can dominate the paint and the boards. He is only 21 years old and has a lot of room to improve with a bigger role and more minutes. The Wizards are lacking in their big-man rotation, so adding a promising center to back Daniel Gafford up makes sense for them.
Patty Mills is the salary fodder in the deal, but he is also one of the most respected veterans in the league. He could provide leadership and mentorship to the young players for a year until his contract expires next offseason.
To make the deal more balanced, Brooklyn can add a second-round pick or two.
These may not look like the most appealing packages but it is good value for Morris whose contract expires next summer and who can sign with any team without bringing a return to Washington.
