It was only a few hours ago that talk was building of the Houston Rockets being close to moving forward Marcus Morris and now it is a done deal, per Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. In exchange for Morris, the Suns sent a second-round pick to the Rockets. Marcus is now reunited with his twin brother Markieff on the Suns roster.

The 23-year-old Morris was the 14th overall pick out of Kansas in the 2011 NBA Draft. On the season, Morris is averaging 8.6 points, 4.1 rebounds and 21.4 minutes per game.
Houston was reportedly weighing two offers for Morris, before deciding to accept the offer from Phoenix.
The Rockets have been active in the final hours before the trade deadline. They completed a deal that brought in Thomas Robinson from the Sacramento Kings. Houston also parted ways with Patrick Patterson, Cole Aldrich and Toney Douglas in the Robinson deal.
The Morris trade opens up around $2 million for Houston that they can now put towards free agency.
