  • Wizards agree to trade Markieff Morris to Pelicans for Wesley Johnson

The New Orleans Pelicans have been at the center of the biggest trade deadline rumors after star Anthony Davis asked out in late January. Selected 13th overall by Phoenix in the 2011 NBA Draft, Morris has appeared in 555 career regular season games (330 starts) with Phoenix and Washington, averaging 11.8 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 26.4 minutes per game.

The Washington Wizards have traded forward Markieff Morris to the New Orleans Pelicans for forward Wesley Johnson, the teams announced Wednesday night.

Morris is now out after suffering a neck injury in January. The Pelicans will also receive the Wizards 2023 second round pick as well. He's expected to miss about six weeks.

Markieff Morris is making $8.6 million this season, the final year of his contract.

According to The Athletic, this deal puts the Wizards under the tax threshold for 2019-20.

Johnson, who himself was traded to the Pelicans back in October from the Los Angeles Clippers, has played sparingly in his brief stint in New Orleans. Washington has also reportedly reached out to the Grizzlies about acquiring Mike Conley or Marc Gasol.

The Wizards dropped to 22-32 this season with a loss to the Bucks on Wednesday.
