Celtics’ Marcus Morris Has ‘Nothing But Love’ For Pistons

Boston Celtics forward Marcus Morris may have been caught off guard when he was traded from his former team, the Detroit Pistons to Boston in the offseason.

Morris, despite the sudden trade, has no ill feelings towards his former team.

“Yeah, he called me at 6 o’clock in the morning. He could’ve at least let me sleep a little bit,” Morris said, according Mark Murphy of The Boston Herald. “You know if you get a call from Van Gundy at 6 in the morning, you know it’s something.”

“So when he called me, I was just hoping it wasn’t that, but it is what it is. It’s the NBA. I love the Celtics. I love the organization. I couldn’t have asked for a better situation.”

Morris also talked about the difference between playing in Detroit and Phoenix, where he played with the Suns prior to landing with the Pistons.

“A lot different. Stan, everything he told me was the truth. He was always straight up and down with me,” Morris said.

“We had conversations, we talked a lot, we had great conversations. In Phoenix, I mean you see the (expletive) going on out there. Nothing has changed. (But) I don’t really want to speak on that. Stan does a great job of just being himself all the time, so I couldn’t have asked for anything better than that.

“I had a lot of love for Detroit, still do. I felt like that was a home for me. They got Avery (Bradley). He’s playing (great) basketball over there. I don’t fault him for any of that. I’ve got nothing but love about that entire organization.”
