Prior to this, the news said that both the Lakers and the Clippers are actively recruiting makiv. The Clippers signed twin brother Marcus with 64 million yuan in four years and recruited him in the name of brothers. However, in the end, makiv chose to stay in the Lakers.
The 31 year old markiv Morris was the first round show 13 in 2011, previously playing for the Suns, the wizards, the thunder, the pistons and the Lakers. After negotiating with the pistons on February 21, 2020, makiv joined the Lakers. In the next 14 regular season games, makiv averaged 14.2 minutes per game, scored 5.3 points and 3.2 rebounds. In the 21 playoffs, makiv started 2 games, averaged 18.3 minutes per game, scored 5.9 points, 3 baskets and 1 assist, with a 3-point shooting rate of 42%. In the third game of the finals, makiv scored 19 Six rebounds.
Makifs return not only further enhances the front line of the Lakers, but also weakens the possibility of the Clippers reinforcement. It can be said that it can kill two birds with one stone. Beside Zhan Mei, makivs accurate three-point and strong style of playing will help the team. With a championship ring in hand, he will certainly hope to return to the Lakers and set foot on the championship journey again.
