Wizards agree to trade Markieff Morris to Pelicans for Wesley Johnson

Selected 13th overall by Phoenix in the 2011 NBA Draft, Morris has appeared in 555 career regular season games (330 starts) with Phoenix and Washington, averaging 11.8 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 26.4 minutes per game.

New Orleans Pelicans small forward Markieff Morris will reportedly seek a second opinion on his neck injury, according to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports. The trade will have to be approved by the league office before becoming official.

This is the second trade the Wizards made Wednesday.

Johnson is averaging 3.7 points and 2.1 rebounds off the bench.

Lil Baby arrested, accused of reckless driving in a Corvette
That's when the trooper reportedly gave the rapper verbal commands - get out of the auto and lay on the ground - and he complied. According to reports by WXIA , Lil Baby (Dominque Jones) was pulled over by the Georgia Patrol while driving an orange Corvette.

Johnson, meanwhile, has only appeared in 26 games this year for the Pelicans.

Morris is now out after suffering a neck injury in January. He's expected to miss about six weeks. Both Johnson, 31, and Morris, 29, are in the past year of their contracts, as well, so they will not be long for their new teams. The main catch in the deal is the future pick the Pelicans will receive as they are basically swapping players on expiring deals but getting a pick back for nearly nothing.

Morris could see considerable playing time in New Orleans if the Pelicans follow through on not playing Davis until he is traded, even if that lasts the rest of the season.
