According to sources, the team’s initial offer was $1.5 million. League sources tell ESPN $4 million is typically the starting point of what an individual in that role should earn. Sources maintain financial compensation wasn’t the only factor as to why the 40-year-old Billups turned down the job on Monday after weeks of deliberation, but it played a part.

Washington Wizards forward Markieff Morris is expected to miss approximately one month following surgery for a sports hernia, a source told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Morris had participated in his normal offseason workout routine before experiencing pain late in the summer. The surgery’s delay, according to the Washington Post, is a result of an ongoing aggravated assault trial involving his twin brother Marcus Morris, as well as other family obligations.

Morris, 28, averaged 14.0 points and 6.5 rebounds per game last season for a Wizards team that fell one game shy of advancing to the Eastern Conference finals.
