Los Angeles free agent Markieff Morris on Monday tweeted his intent to return to the Lakers next season.

“Run it back!” Morris tweeted with the hashtag #Lakeshow.

The Athletic reported Morris agreed to a one-year minimum deal — $2.3 million.


Morris averaged 9.7 points per game in split time between the Detroit Pistons (44 games) and the Lakers (14). Morris joined the Lakers in February after negotiating a buyout from the Pistons.

Morris was a key cog in the Lakers’ run to the NBA title, shooting 42 percent from 3-point range during the playoffs, playing 21 games (two starts). Morris is a career 34.5-percent shooter from long range.

Morris averages 11.4 and 5.3 rebounds per game for his 9-year career. The Lakers are Morris’ fifth team.
