Blindsided by his trade from Phoenix, the 25-year-old small forward said he will use it as motivation to help the Pistons get back in the playoff hunt. “I wouldn’t say stunning, but in Phoenix, I would say I didn’t have a great opportunity,” Morris said at an introductory news conference today at the Palace of Auburn Hills. “I kind of wanted to play with my brother (twin Markieff Morris) so much that I kind of took away from myself. I didn’t think I had an opportunity to get better. I don’t think I had the chance to grow as a player over there. I think the opportunity is here for me. “This gives me a chance to branch out. In my opinion, God works in mysterious ways, and He has plans for certain people. Everybody knew how bad I wanted to play with my brother. Phoenix knew. For them to trade me without consent or telling me was like a slap in the face, because of the contract I took from those guys and the money I took from them. I’m happy to be here. I’m a Piston. I’m a Bad Boy. I’m ready to get started.”
