70 percent of Raptors fans polled think team should trade for Markieff Morris

BY foxsports • August 14, 2015

Markieff Morris isn't too happy with the Phoenix Suns right now, and has essentially demanded a trade out of town.

The Raptors are one of the teams he mentioned he'd be interested in playing for, although the truth of the matter is, he really doesn't have a choice.

The Suns are unlikely to trade him for what would amount to pennies on the dollar at this point, but if he were to become available, 70 percent of Raptors fans polled would like to see Toronto attempt to add him to the roster.

It's unclear what the Raptors would have to give up in order to entice the Suns to send Morris out of town. The poll suggests including Patrick Patterson, which 23 percent of the fans are in favor of. But a bigger majority, 47 percent, prefer to keep Patterson while putting together a package around Terrence Ross and James Johnson to try to make something work.

Unless draft picks are part of the equation, none of these players are likely strong enough to interest the Suns if they're parting ways with Morris. But it's fun to dissect the potential scenarios nonetheless.
