Markieff. The Other Morris Twin.

He looked cooked in OKC after they picked him up last year.  Hope he can bounce back.

Plays a lot of C too, so he could see backup minutes there as well.

Interesting move. He’s the more fiery brother and the pistons could use some of that. He’ll also do a better job of standing in for Blake at backup PF, since we need to limit him more this season.

But doesn’t this max us out? Are we going to see Thon at backup Center all year? There’s a roster spot open, but is there any money? Maybe we can hope they’re holding that spot open for a trade.

I saw someone breakdown their cap and they have about $1.6M left before the luxury tax.  That isn't even enough for a veterans minimum contract.  Well it is if the player is a rookie or only has 1 year service.  Anything over 2 years is more than $1.6M to start.

Morris plays a lot of C so I'm thinking he gets the backup C minutes.

Something to remember about the luxury tax.  It isn't calculated until the end of the season.  So you can be over it between now and then and not have to pay it.  As long as you are under it at the end of the Finals in 2020 you wont owe.  

So a team over it looking to get under would have to make a trade and take back no/less salary.  Or cut a guy who doesn't have a guaranteed contract, etc.
