I'm for keeping Morris.
1. The uncertain health/status of Hayward. We really don't know what he is going to look like. He would be good backup just in case. As we saw last year, you never know with injuries. And for 5 mil per as an expiring deal, Morris is a goo value.
2. With how the Cs play, I believe you can never have enough quality wings. They basically play with 3 wings on the floor so loosing a guy who can defend/score seems counter productive, especially considering that beating GS/HOU is probably the ultimate goal.
3. Morris brought a sense of cockiness/toughness to this team that they lacked in previous year. Thought it was a positive for the team and I think it played a large role in creating their identity last year.
TP on all accounts
. How did this develop into a Morris-bashing thread, anyway?
Don't get me wrong, I like Baynes, but for all of his faults, Morris is still a guy who can create something out of nothing, offensively, so to speak, and those dudes are difficult to find. Plus, with as gruesome as Hayward's injury was, he might be eased back into things in a reserve role, early on, not to mention the fact that it's probably not exactly a good idea to play anyone who is returning from any kind of major injury/surgery on back-to-backs, but then again, I'm not a doctor, so...
