Markieff Morris Fined $10K for Publicly Demanding a Trade

by September 08, 2015

That was one costly tweet, Markieff Morris.

The NBA announced Tuesday afternoon that they have fined the Suns forward $10,000 for demanding a trade in a public forum.

Phoenix, for what it’s worth, appears to be in no hurry to get rid of the unhappy Morris (though that may be due to him personally driving down his own trade value.)

From the press release:

Markieff Morris of the Phoenix Suns has been fined $10,000 for a public statement detrimental to the NBA, the league announced today. The statement concerned Morris’ desire to be traded by the Suns.
