The Knicks have agreed to trade Marcus Morris to the Clippers, SNY's Ian Begley confirmed on Thursday.
The full deal is actualy a three-team trade with the Wizards. Here are the details from Begley on what the Knicks received:
Moe Harkless, the Clippers' 2020 first-round pick, the right to swap a 2021 first-rounder with the Clippers, the rights to Ukrainian point guard Issuf Sanon, and a Clippers 2021 second-round pick via Detroit.

The Knicks were interested in Landry Shamet, but Begley reported earlier that the Clippers were unwilling to have him in any trade package.
With president Steve Mills fired, teams were under the impression that the Knicks were more open to trading Morris, Begley reported. Prior to the firing, the Knicks were listening to offers, but were more focused on keeping him past the deadline and looking to sign him long-term. There was also mutual interest on both sides to reach a deal this summer.
The Lakers were also involved in talks with the Knicks about Morris, but with Kyle Kuzma out of any package, Begley had the deal as highly unlikely.
Morris had been the Knicks' best player this season, averaging a team-high 19.6 points with 5.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists over 43 games. He shot 44 percent from three.
Harkless' production is much less at 5.5 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.0 assists over 22.8 minutes per game. The kicker, though, is the fact that Harkless is set to be a free agent after this season, where the Knicks could simply let him walk.
