After Marcus Morris received a verbal commitment from veteran Marcus Morris that he would join the San Antonio Spurs to change his mind at the last minute, the team has now also changed gear. With Morris on its way to the New York Knicks, the Spurs decided to add free agent Trey Lyles. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Lyles signs a two-year agreement with San Antonio.

With Marcus Morris out of the picture, it is clear that the Spurs still felt they needed extra front-court help. Trey Lyles could be a great addition to the Spurs, as he still has a lot of potential at just 23 years old.

Lyles was 12th overall drafted by the Utah Jazz but eventually finished the Denver Nuggets in the past two seasons. Although he did not enjoy great statistical success during his short NBA career, he has proven to be a viable option for the bank and would now have plenty of opportunities under Gregg Popovich in San Antonio.

The Spurs already have a whole series of attackers on their list, including former All-Stars LaMarcus Aldridge and Rudy Gay. However, their great man who got off the couch certainly needed a boost, and this is where they expect Lyles to come in and immediately play a major role. Lyles average 8.5 points and 3.8 rebounds in limited playing time with the Nuggets last season.
