Meanwhile, distillate stockpiles increased by 3.7 million barrels, beating forecasts for an increase of 0.74 million barrels. The September WTI crude oil support is $59.12 and the September Brent crude oil's support is at $66.63.
Morris' change of heart, however, has ruffled a few feathers in the National Basketball Association, with the report making note of the fact that many agents have quietly voiced their displeasure about Morris' move, both because of what it does to the Spurs today and what it could mean for the future of free agency in the league. He added that "this is no knock on the Spurs". The 6-foot-10 forward averaged 8.5 points and 3.8 rebounds per game during the 2018-19 season.
It remains to be seen how it all plays out, but a Thursday report from Ian Begley, of SNY.tv, indicated that the Knicks now believe that obtaining Morris is "a likely scenario".
After learning that Morris would be joining the Knicks, the Spurs quickly pivoted to 23-year-old power forward Trey Lyles (per ESPN), who spent his first four seasons with the Utah Jazz. and Denver Nuggets. Portis and Gibson could end up with some playing time at center behind another promising second-year player, Mitchell Robinson, as could Randle in some small-ball lineups.
According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, the deal is for two years. But the league passed him by with a flurry activity in the opening days of free agency, limiting Morris' options for what he deemed would be a market-value contract.
