Markieff Morris is reportedly ready to run it back.

After recently reaching the championship mountain with the Los Angeles Lakers in the bubble, Morris is set to re-up on a one-year deal with the club, according to The Athletic's Shams Charania.

Morris appeared to confirm the deal with a tweet of his own, as well.

The 31-year-old finished the 2019-20 campaign with L.A. after beginning it with Detroit, signing with the Lakers after he and the Pistons agreed to a buyout in February.

He averaged 5.3 points and 3.2 rebounds to close out the regular season, along with 5.9 points per game and three rebounds per game in the post-season.
