Per sources, NBA forward Markieff Morris has signed with the Los Angeles Lakers. Morris had agreed to a contract buyout with the Detroit Pistons earlier today. Morris apparently had been sold by the idea of playing a backup power forward role with the Lakers. The Los Angeles Clippers recently signed his twin brother Marcus Morris.

The Lakers and the Clippers play next on March 8th, which should be a really interesting match up.
