Markieff Morris traded to Wizards from Suns

It looks like Markieff Morris finally got the trade out of Phoenix he's wanted.

The Washington Wizards traded forward Kris Humphries, center DeJuan Blair and a first-round pick (top 9 protected) to the Suns for Morris, according to multiple media sources.

Morris, who was drafted in the first round by Phoenix in 2011, averaged 15.3 points, 6.2 rebounds and 31.5 minutes a game. This year, those numbers have dropped to 11.6 points, 5.2 rebounds and 24.8 minutes a game.

The move to Washington could provide Morris with a fresh start. Seems like he might need one.

He tweeted his desire to be traded upon multiple occasions after Phoenix dealt his twin brother, Marcus, to Detroit during the off-season. Morris was suspended two games after throwing a towel at then-Suns coach Jeff Hornacek in November.

Morris also shoved Phoenix teammate Archie Goodwin during a timeout earlier this month.
