The Brooklyn Nets are finalizing a non-guaranteed one-year deal for free agent forward Markieff Morris, sources told ESPN on Tuesday.

The deal is pending a physical, sources said.

Morris, 32, averaged 7.6 points and 2.6 rebounds last season for the Miami Heat, as he was limited to 17 games because of a whiplash injury.

Morris missed 58 games after he was injured in a Nov. 8 scuffle with Denver's Nikola Jokic.

The veteran also has played for the Lakers, Pistons, Thunder, Wizards and Suns since entering the league in 2011, averaging 10.9 points and 5.2 rebounds per game.
