Markieff Morris has stated that his future will not be in Phoenix on his twitter account.
Morris has made it clear as day on his twitter that he no longer wants to be a part of the Phoenix Suns, and wishes to be moved on as quickly as possible.
Since his twin brother Marcus was traded by the Suns to the Detroit Pistons in July, Morris hasn’t been happy. Suns General Manager Ryan McDonough only made the trade as he probably believed it would allow the team to improve, so Morris shouldn’t take the trade personally.

The Suns might be wise to move Morris on though as well. As it applies for any sport at any level, it is not wise to have an unrested player in the locker room, as it can have detrimental affects on the team as a whole.
Essentially, keeping Morris on the team could damage playoff hopes for next season, despite the fact he is the team’s star forward. If he isn’t there psychologically, which it sure sounds like he isn’t after the tweet last night, he isn’t going to perform at his best on the court.
If the Suns don’t trade him by the start of training camp, he needs to attend and do his job. His decisions from this point on will affect how teams approach him in the future.
Some teams make look at it as, if he doesn’t get his way, he’s going to be a problem. Whilst that probably isn’t true, Morris must change his attitude before training camp gets underway.
