After working to finalize a deal for days, the Nets and Markieff Morris have agreed on a one-year contract, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

In Morris, Brooklyn hopes to bring in a steady veteran presence to help stabilize a team that endured all kinds of drama down the stretch and into the offseason, from Kyrie Irving’s potential departure to Kevin Durant’s trade request and ultimatum regarding himself or firing Steve Nash and Sean Marks.

Now, with Irving and Durant both staying put, Morris will look to add another level of championship experience after winning it all with the Lakers in 2020.

A neck injury limited Morris to just 17 games last season with the Heat, averaging 7.6 points while shooting 47.4 percent from the field.
