Morris was being defended by Anderson and clearly annoyed.

Marcus Morris' tenure with the New York Knicks got off to a weird start on Monday night during the team's first preseason game against the Washington Wizards. Morris got into Anderson's face just after clocking him with the ball and was subsequently ejected from the contest.

The two players exchanged words.

As expected, Morris was hit with a Flagrant 2 foul and tossed from the game.

Morris, who played for the Boston Celtics last season, admitted he may have overreacted on the play but insisted that he and his team weren't going to take "any s-t" this season, according to SNY.

The third overall pick tied a team-high with 17 points, seven rebounds and three assists in 39 minutes on 6-of-13 shooting to help lead the Knicks to a 104-99 win over the Washington Wizards on Monday night.

"Am I concerned [about a suspension]?" However, he was maybe looking for this moment to a tone-setter for the season as he told reporters, "we not taking no sh**". I've got to be smart, set a better example.

The tough presence Marcus Morris vowed to bring to the New York Knicks this season showed up in their first preseason game.
