NBA News: Toronto, Boston best fit for unhappy Markieff Morris?

With all that is negative, several teams from around the league could make a move to land the young power forward and if he lands in the right town, his game could reach a new level, making it a positive for Morris and the league.

Rumors have already circulated on potential landing spots for the 6′ 10″ former first round draft choice and according to reports, Toronto is one of the favorites to make a move for the big man before the start of training camp.

The Raptors have already made significant roster moves this off season, especially on defensive-minded players, but a trade for Morris would land the team a solid scoring forward in the paint and the type of player that could shape the roster into one of the best in the Eastern Conference.

With fours years of experience, the former Kansas star has averaged 11 points and five rebounds per game, but over the last two years those numbers are 14.5 points and just over six rebounds per contest.

Another plus for the youngster is his free throw shooting which is above average for a front court player and while he isn’t known as being an enforcer in the paint, he can more than hold his own down low and would be a great addition to an already strong roster.

Toronto isn’t the only NBA team with interest as Boston and Houston both could make a move before the summer is over to land the talented forward, but for a player looking to build on his career and become a star in the league, moving north of the border would be a huge step forward in his career.
