The Morris brothers will be unrestricted free agents next summer. Both forwards signed “rookie scale extensions” with the Phoenix Suns on September 28, 2014, which means that the Morrises will most likely be eyeing solid paydays come next year’s free agency period.
Rich Paul currently represents a number of NBA players, most notably LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers. Ben Simmons, John Wall, Tristan Thompson, Eric Bledsoe, and J.R. Smith also fall under his client list, amongst many others.
Marcus Morris is set to make $5.4 million this season in Boston, while Markieff will earn $8.6 million for the Washington Wizards.
